    HR24-100 - 0x5D2
    HR21-100 - 0x5D2
    HR21-700 - 0x5D2

    Both SD versions of the channels were in my Custom 1 list on my My HR24-100, HR21-100 and my HR21-700. After the introduction of the HD versions, the SD versions of the channels were removed and the HD versions were NOT added. This has been the standard operating procedure on my DVR's for quite a long time. IIRC, it happened when AMC went HD as well.

    I also hide SD duplicates on all recivers, so maybe that has something to do with it.

    I know of a few comments in this thread about how slow the on demand is for the HR 20-700 since 0x5D2. While this release finally fixed the slowness of all the basic functions of the DVR (the guide and list slowness that was driving me bonkers for months and had me ready to leave D*), now anytime OD is on my guide, or I try to search and OD is involved, it's minutes before the receiver responds. Sometimes just scrolling through the guide at the beginning of movie channels and passing the on demand channels, is very slow. My HR 23-700 is considerably faster, though not very fast.

    I'm also watching some downloads times from OD I was finally able to initiate and they are very slow. I'm downloading Homeland. I have fios and as fast a connection as possible. VUDU downloads and plays at lightning speeds.

    Thanks for any help.

    About half the time when I am recording something on my HR24 and I then press the STOP button to stop the recording, nothing happens. In other words, the HR24 keeps on recording and the window giving me my options to keep recording or stop recording fails to appear. Only if I furiously press the RECORD button about twenty times will the options window finally appear, and it is the old-fashioned options window that says on the bottom something like "cancel entire series." Sorry if this has been posted before.

    I read somewhere that the sequence should be TV, AVR then source.

    I had issues with picture not showing up during my Harmony 1's sequence was different from that, since I change the order I've not had that issue.

    On another note, I'm finding I need to clear NVRAM about once a week with my HR24s to get it to not ignore the remote for a bit.

    I'm looking for some advice here. At least once a week or twice my HR24-500 will completely lock up. The problem occurs when I try to use it for the first time usually when I get home from work. I read here to keep the power on all the time. I do that but I'm still getting this problem. I have to hit the red button to get it to clear up. About 2 months ago I had my LNB replaced and I was upgraded to the SWiM system. The upgrade was done at my request because of constant rain fade. I thought it might help. I only have one receiver. I was having this problem before the LNB and wiring upgrade but it seems to be getting worse. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated before I call Directv and ask for another receiver. Thank you.

    Oftentimes with my HR24 when I highlight a program on a SMART SEARCH LIST and then press INFO, fine, but then when I press the left arrow to get out of the INFO and back to the LIST, it takes the receiver 30 seconds to respond. This is not the only way my HR24 takes a very long time to respond to a remote control command. Thanks.

    I now have another problem with my HR24-500. Once every day, or two, the picture starts "vibrating" back and forth, left and right; don't know any other way to describe it. It is usually just part of the overall picture, sometimes there are several different "layers" that vibrate. :confused:

    I turn off the DVR, turn it back on and the problem disappears for a day, or a couple of days. Then it reappears.

    Symptoms fitting this description are common to both HR21-100 and HR21-700 going back a couple of years (my experience). Usually occurs while watching standard def Mpeg 2 channels, more likely during "live buffering" rather than recordings, but can happen occasionally in the case of recordings, as well.

    It appears to me as though these machines aren't always properly tracking the interlacing, displaying the odd and even fields in the wrong order, causing the "vibrating" effect, especially pronounced during animated programming. It can happen very rarely, on an HD channel, but motion only seems slightly "stuttered" rather than "vibrating" in HD cases.

    In any case, I usually just pause and unpause (or repeat button) the program and eventually with luck of the draw (50/50 odd/even) it straigtens out. In the rare case of HD, usually once is enough.
