    Channel 1096 has gone blank on my HR20-700s. It was there a the last time I checked and now when I tune to it I get a blank screen. Anyone else experiencing this? If I go to Channel 1100 I can pull up my queue and every item has 1096 Cintest next to it.

    Maybe when our 1096 comes back we will have everything in our queue ready to play with a message that states that "All good things come to those who wait.". The other possibility is that 1096 is having what they call technical difficulties. I am leaning towards option number two.

    CH 1096 down on both my HR20-700 & HR23-700. Black screens on both units.

    Of Note: I discovered that ch 1096, which I had added to my favorites list on both units, was now unchecked.

    I rechecked the channel on both favorites lists.

    I reran all my network tests and reran the IAMANEDGECUTTER search just to be safe.

    Channel 1096 is blank for me also and the pig that used to be there for the last channel I was on is gone also. :confused:

    I checked on channel 1100 and the pig is still there for that channel. :confused:

    Channel 1096 is also black for me and I can't get anything to come up. Hopefully they are fixing some issues with us getting movies.

    On another note I had Wolfman as one of the movies I watched from 1096. This movie I never added to my queue but it had a green checkmark next to it. So I decided to try the movie to see if I could get it. I could and I watched it. Even though the movie said it was 1 hour and 59 mins long I got to 1 hour and 3 mins and I get a message saying that the movie was not fully recorded and it was searching for the rest of the movie. After about a couple mins of it searching it asked me to delete the recording. So I never got to to see the full movie. This is a major issue if u ask me. Paying 6 bucks to have a movie and then half way through it says It never recorded the whole movie.

    The picture inset is gone and it flushes the buffer. Before it would show the playing channel and return you back with the buffer intact.

    "Avatar" was in my QUEUE yesterday but when I just checked the QUEUE today it was no longer listed as an entry and does not show in my PLAYLIST

    Checking HISTORY there is an entry for "Avatar" showing it was canceled at 10:01 today "because of a programming update (13/0/)"

    Because I watched it download just as a DOD show does. Internet lights going crazy, and the percentage downloaded increasing. Nothing else going on with the internet connection at the time.

    I started seeing a message that 1096 is not available at this time. Was getting a black screen before, but now a message appears...
