    yes tried other directv remote too, it has been getting pushes except for this weekend. this is partly due to it going into a lockup mode while in standby.
    I will wait until next push and if that does not fix this I am boxing it up.

    OK...know it was reaching for a short straw...but we all want you to get past the lockups and no-starts to be "well" with your HR24.

    me too :)
    honestly my old hr20-100 with messed up tuners worked better then this unit.
    I've also ruled out cabling to be sure and have also run it disconnected from network and still have issues.
    my red button actually has wear marks now, not joking.

    There have been a couple of bad ones reported out there...not alot...but a few...you might just have some bad luck and have one too.

    What remote code set are you using? 00001, 00002, etc...

    The -100 models, of any DirecTV unit, are notorious for only doing a download using the 00001 code set.

    Absolutely correct. No need to wait for the screen...and push 02468 in a very prompt manner or you will FAIL. The HR24 is extremely fast to pass through the window of opportunity.

    I have pulled two times on the HR24...it requires fast reflexes and fast fingers!

    been messing with this and found some interesting results. I can hook component, turn tv off, and when power light flashes hit the code and its fine, turn tv on and software pull in progress.
    if I use hdmi I can never get a pull no matter when code entered.
    on component its easy to pull, for my unit hdmi won't.
    I can repeat this too.

    edit: should add I only had 1 output hooked up at a time.
