I've noticed that when starting DP on the HR 44, it doesn't function as well as on the other HR 20's. I'll use tonight as an example. On my HR 24 would, with 206 as starting point, enter 247 (MLB) and press twice the down arrow. DP starts and works no problem. I've been using that method since DP's inception. It doesn't work that way with the HR 44. I was on 206 and the buffer was going. I hit 247 and down arrow twice but the channel changed to my second DP station from last night (SNF and MLB). I get the AFP message but when I hit the Dow arrow I hear the sound effect but doesn't return to 206. So I lose the starting buffer. Receiver had been off for over 18 hour. One client was on but not tuned to any station involved. This happens the first time I attempt to enter into DP. I had at least 3 available tuners.
