I've been with DTV for a couple of decades and have never run into this one before. When I got up this morning my HR44 would not display live broadcasts, either from satellite or OTA via LCC. Just black sceen and no audio. All the HR44-generated stuff, menus, info bar at top of screen, etc., showed and worked fine, but the programmming itself was absent. Things already recorded played as usual. After a reset via the menus the problem went away. While I had the problem I never thought to see if it would be able to record successfully. The unit did receive updated software recently (0x127f) but that was 12 days ago so I don't think that caused it. Thought I'd pass this on in case anyone else runs into this problem.
