    The main issue I've noticed was a delay on playback yesterday with Dirty Jobs. I hit play and it froze up the whole system for about 30 seconds. It did start playing and responding to buttons at that point. Much better than requiring a RBR though.

    I know lots of other people are having this issue, but I just wanted to add my experience to the record.

    Took the HR20 out of standby yesterday evening and couldn't tune any channels. SD, HD, or OTA HD. Just a black screen with the standard title bar. I don't have any MPEG4 channels so I couldn't test those. Playing recorded programs also resulted in a black screen. RBR solved the problem.

    This is 0x120 connected to my TV via component cables. (I was using HDMI a couple of weeks ago but switched to component to see if that would help with reliability)

    Yes. I did the early upgrade on the night it was out for download. I'm using HDMI as well.

    Reggie3, Caller ID stops working for me after every upgrade, but a quick RBR seems to activate it again. Give it a try.

    Instead of just a reboot, I recommend you pulling the power... letting it sit for about 5 minutes... then starting up... just to make sure all the modem hardware inside can discharge and reset.

    First BSOD with 120 last night. I was watching mpeg4 local HD NBC station. Rewinded the box back 45 minutes to watch the news that was recording to the buffer. Midway through I pulled up my list of shows and selected Caddyshack which was recording at the time on HDN I believe. Black Screen. Going back to channel 4 everything was fine. Selected any other channels I got a black screen. RBR fixed the problem... waited till after the show stopped recording. The show I was recording shows perfectly from my recorded show list.

    Setup:
    HDMI to Panasonic Plasma
    around 90% signal strength in the great state of NJ

    Picture in trick play at 1X (mainly REW) freezes for 4-5 seconds (used watch to time it) before resuming. Still getting periodic sound/video dropouts on MPEG2 and MPEG4 HD channels.

    It's usually 50/50, on a good day, that my HR20 recordings will work properly. With the Raven I was having every issue imaginable (spontaneous reboots, no trick plays, playback freezing, IKD, BSOD, yadda, yadda...). I finally watched Return of the King, which is one of the main reasons that I had not "reset everything" and reformatted. Granted, I had done this before Christmas and it made my HR20 worse (maybe a 1% success rate).

    Okay, to the point… Monday evening I “reset everything” and then reformatted (rbr + record/down). Suddenly, trick plays work with live TV (unusual for me). I recorded a program or two Monday and they worked great.

    Later Monday night I downloaded Benz. Almost everything has worked perfectly since the reformat. I'm amazed. I have recorded and watched a bunch of stuff. I did have had 1 pre Benz program show IKD, but everything else has played pretty much without incident, which is odd because in the past anytime I had an IKD, all recordings would then show IKD and a restart was required.

    Alright, details of my very minor issues:

    I did notice that Caller ID worked twice while watch live TV (I think) and did not display once during a playback, though the call was logged in the message list.

    My receiver was “dead” (dark & unresponsive) when I tried to turn it on last night around 6:20pm (had left it in standby). RBR and all was fine – it did not seem like it went through a complete restart – nothing displayed on the TV and after 5/10 minutes, I hit power on and the picture showed.

    I had about two minutes of a/v dropouts at the start of last night’s American Idol playback (WRAZDT (MPEG2), 50-1, 9:01pm).

    I had one program (Heroes WNCN 17 (MPEG4) 9pm) that was recorded with Raven have the IKD bug while trying to play this AM (Benz loaded).

    I am using component connections. Some programs were recorded with native and DD off, others with native and DD on.

    Yea.

    Reboot again, and force a software download.

    I was happy to see the song data displayed when watching XM radio but just when I was getting into listening/watching Willie's Place, here comes the screen saver. Is there any way to make that not happen? BTW, I really appreciate this forum, Earl and the collective minds of several hundred geeks are so much more productive than talking to D* and I continue to be impressed with the intelligence.
