    My H3 did a weirdie the other day. Whether watching a recording or live, the DVR function buttons wouldn't work. No pause, FF, record, etc would work. The symbol would show on the screen but to no effect. A reboot cleared the issue but still strange.

    The other funny I've experienced is after initial selection of DISH on my AVR, the DISH screen will show, then go black, then DISH, then black. After 2 blackouts, with sound, the video reappears. I don't know if its the AVR or H3. It started happening a few months ago. If I select Netflix while this is happening, I get Netflix overlays and audio only, no video. I have to exit Netflix and go back in. If already in Netflix and have selected a show, the overlays (description, pause, etc) will show but no video. Backing out of the show sometimes brings back the video, sometimes I have to back out to the 'Who's watching' screen. Very odd.

    time to test your config with bypass AVR video inputs/outputs
    connect H3 to TV directly and watch for a couple days

    My HwS does that all the time/natural operation and a reboot will not fix the problem. Going to H3 a soon as I buy one. Was told the OS is more stable on them. Doesn't look like it.

    I have a wireless joey that uses a HWS & when I first turn it on, I have picture, then black screen & then picture. Started several months ago, after one of the "updates". Before that I had no problems
