    None of our DVR recorded programs (Hopper with Sling) would play last night - All we got was a Black Screen
    The rest of the Dish Functions worked Fine.
    I reset the DVR and everything worked fine !!
    Are we looking at a failing hard drive that has not failed yet ?
    Thanks -- George Wells

    When watching live TV can you pause and rewind? If not then it's definitely the hard drive going bad.

    Other things to consider: Was there a weather event that might have caused rain fade? Are your older recordings still viewable? Can you watch live channels off the dish today? Can you record one of those live channels and play it back?
