    Have tried all the suggestions shown in this topic and nothing improves my DVR-24. This has to be a result of the latest update. That's when it started. I can only hope Directv is working on this because the receiver is just about useless now. Terrible! Terrible! Terrible!

    I noticed this morning that I had a minor problem on the HR24.
    I was watching a live program, not recorded, and the progress bar was Orange and it was the full length of the program, I was in the middle of the time frame.
    I tried to FF and I got the Bonk sound.
    I backed up and it did that. I FFd it back to the live where it stopped on it's own.
    I then pressed the record button on the program and the bar was still Orange.
    I pressed the list button and called up the program. I then pressed the red button to delete the recording.
    It deleted it.
    When I pressed the Play button the bar is now Green as it is supposed to be.

    Last night I tried using the BIST and ran all of the tests except for the SMART Long Test and Surface test since they take forever. Cleared NVRAM after the HR24 booted back up and things seemed to be going well until just now when the Guide took an extended period of time to populate and then just had the HR24 become non-responsive for 30 seconds.

    Might try to reboot twice within a 30 minute period to flush the guide data and see if that helps. But I have a lot of recordings today so I probably won't get to do it today.

    I'm tempted to go to the latest Cutting Edge release to see if this will resolve my problem -- it is really unusable the way it is.

    Case management couldn't help me over the phone. They sent a tech to my house. He checked the HR23 and HR24 and found nothing wrong with them. He sais I had a 0x66d software problem and recommended I just wait until the next download.

    Another thing about 0x66d. This was happening before 0x66d with 0x62c, but now it's much worse. About 75% of the time when I push a button on the remote, my HR24 will execute the command twice. For example, if I key in channel 2, the HR24 will go to channel 22. If I scroll a singele line on a list, the HR24 will jump 2 or sometimes even 3 lines. If I scroll a whole page on a list, the HR24 will jump two pages. But even worse than that, now with 0x66d, my particular HR24 will quite often react AS IF I pressed the SELECT button when I didn't. For example, if I go to a LIST and highlight a particular video, the video will start playing on its own AS IF I pressed SELECT when the PLAY option was highlighted on the left screen. Another example on my HR24 with 0x66d is that when I am trying to set a manual recording, the DVR will act AS IF I pressed SELECT when the highlight is arbitrarily on SET MANUAL for DTVs original default set of options that I don't want but haven't yet had a chance to change to what I actually do want. Then I have to delete this bogus recording from my TO DO list. Please, oh please DTV, lets have 0x66e (or whatever it will be called) soon. Thanks!

    2 out of my 3 HR24-500s now miss the first button push on the remote maybe 75% of the time. Even after the first button push there is a noticeable 'delay'.

    I think it is time for DirecTV to make a change - how do these things keep happening? How do the CE testers not notice and report these before the 'updates' take working DVRs and turn them into crap? I just don't get it?

    At first I thought this was a nice feature. But then I noticed it is inconsistent - not all channels with on demand content show the triangle, like BBCAHD, NGCHD, NGWHD and some others. Surely the channels don't have to pay dtv for the triangle.

    Yes, this is true- also for SD channels as well. Ex. Most of the east/west matching premium channels with VOD show a triangle for both. Not TMC 554/555. The triangle is missing for the west channel 555. Shows the lack of attention to detail that is put into the software updates that seem to cause additional problems every time one is released.
