    Wow, checking for that was way too confusing. I THINK everything is unlocked. No kids here. I don't see the term web videos anywhere anymore (I think I used to see that) but everything is green except Hide Adult, which is red, but sounds like it means show adult, sine it's a double negative. Info > Parental displays the first option as Lock Now, so I should be unlocked.

    Using your DirecTV remote press Menu. Select Settings & Help, then select Parental Controls. On the left of the page that comes up you will see a list of options. Web Videos will be one of those options. If you don't see it reboot your receiver.

    I did not see Web Videos as an option on the left in Parental Controls, so I rebooted a second time. That brought back YouTube and MyDirectv. Thanks, MysteryMan!

    Quite interesting. I had something record every hour of the night, and my HR21 responded right away to commands. I may have to start recording programs to keep this thing from going to sleep and being unreponsive. Although, that will probably kill the HR21 faster, but at least I didn't have to red button reset this morning and when I got home from work.
    Anyone know how long until this thing goes into the sleep state even with the dvr on? I will only record a program every other hour tonight to see what happens.

    I just want to pile on here and say thank you. My HR24 was crazy slow and freezing. I deleted my two "AALL" keyword searches for the San Jose Sharks and my DVR INSTANTLY returned to its snappy self! Thanks for the tip everyone!

    Hopefully you will get an HR24. I will keep my fingers crossed for you.

    Thanks should go to LiQiCE specifically who discovered the problem that apparently eluded DTV engineers for months.

    Nope HR22/100

    So far better than the HR20/100

    Running 0x5d2, let's see what happens when they roll out the software

    I am just happy to get the larger harddrive than the HR21

    Did it update the software last night / early this morning ?
    Hopefully you got a good receiver and it does not give you any trouble.

    Well, the hard drive in my HR21 finally died. Came home to the dreaded blue screen giving me the hard drive failure. Took me an hour or two to find my esata cables and a hard drive I could use, but thankfully had it up and running before any of my scheduled recordings were supposed to start. So, time for the HR44 upgrade...probably order around the 1st.

    How come this thread has gone pretty much dead? Are all the HR2Xs working just fine now? Mine sure isn't. Still, every time I press RECORD my HR23 and HR24 freeze stone cold for at least 40 seconds. Is there a new thread for some new software that I'm missing? I still have 0x6d8. Thanks!

    I just got 0x6d8 on my DVRs this week and everything seems to be fine except for all of the "To be announced" listings.

    I think most of us (at least the ones that were vocal) had our issues fixed unilaterally with the removal of the AALL type keyword searches. Back to running as it should ever since, so not much to report.
    If you have AALL keyword searches set, remove them and you will be back to good. If you don't, likely a different ghost in the machine that requires further investigation.

    I guess I got two ghosts then. Both my HR23 and HR24 have the same RECORD/FREEZE problem. I don't have any AALL keyword searches, and in fact, I took all of the regular search keywords out of my HR23 to no avail. Both receivers went bad exactly contiquous with the 0x066d download (on different days), and neither has been cured with any of the subsequent downloads. A DTV engineering liason person has been to my house 3 times and checked everything. He says it's the software. I believe him because after my HR24 went bad with 0x066d, I forced a download to possibly fix what a DTV tech said might be a bad download, and lo and behold, the HR24 downloaded the old 0x062c. Then the machine worked perfectly again, that is until 0x066d came back. Oh for 0x062c again. Thanks!

    Jibberyer...

    Have you tried just doing a restart, and as soon as it gets fully booted back up, doing another, to completely wipe all guide data and then give it a couple days and see how its behavior is then?

    Agree with dravenstone - I think most of us have been working with the removal of any keyword auto-records. I am not happy with the work around, but at least it makes TV watchable again. I am hoping a new software update fixes the problem.

    If you're still having issues - I'm not sure what they could be related to. I agree with you it is probably a software issue. Do you have any other receivers in your house that are working fine? Just for fun - you might want to try swapping their locations to see if that helps.
