    Hi Tom:

    I also recorded UFC 67 off HD channel 98 last night. Just checked - the whole thing recorded flawlessly for me on both HR20's - Just an FYI

    With a manual recording of all the Playhouse Disney shows this morning...

    Was set to go last night. Went to turn it on this morning and the recording wasn't there. Looked in my history list, and it says that it was "cancelled." Looked at the details, and it says that "this recording was stopped due to an unexpected error. (14)."

    Another show did come on to record at 5 a.m., which is in My Playlist. I am wondering if there is an issue with the second tuner, that when the second show came on, it didn't/couldn't switch to the second tuner....

    Another well known issue: looked like it recorded Scrubs this last week. Went to watch it Friday night, and it was there, but no picture/no sound. Did a RBR and the show disappeared completely.

    Starting to get a little frustrated...

    Screen ripping during guide searching. V120. Never happened on early software versions.

    First major issue with 0x120. Trying to schedule the Grammys to record. The conflict screen came up. Tried to select to cancel the second recording and the unit froze on that screen. Wouldn't respond to any button presses. Had to RBR.

    Give me back the previous release...

    I've had 2 lockups since this latest release (never had a lockup prior...) Both were Hi-Def channels (Discovery). Didn't may as much attention to the first one, but here's the details on this lockup.

    - Picture frozen (two dumpy guys fishing! ;o)
    - Sound playing from apparent current show (was not the show with frozen picture - probably same channel tho)
    - Was recording HDNet Movies - yellow record light remains on; scheduled record end time not reached yet - don't know if the movie is still recording.
    - None of the buttons on the remote or unit work
    - I assume I'll need to reboot.

    I sure hope this doesn't freeze up during the Super Bowl!!!

    I also noticed the mini-menu (bottom of screen when pushing blue button) will occasionally "tear" when scrolling.

    BSB with a brand new unit. Just like posters above, MPEG4 locals work, nothing else. Had to reset.

    I've had two freeze ups recently. One was in My Playlist it just locked up and needed RBR. The other was the black screen bug. Left it on Ch 95 (NFL Network HD) and put it in Standby for the evening. Woke up to only having the locals available (ABC GMA in HD) but no other channels. RBR and all were available again.

    I've also seen the screen savor issue and the tearing in My playlist.

    I finally (after 16 weeks) got the HR20 to reproduce a bug others have reported, yeah!

    I was experimenting with very weak and broken up/pixellating OTA signals. The screen went black, but I had full control of the remote. No matter what I did (I didn't try going into standby and coming back out), I was stuck with the Black Screen. I tried watching an existing recording and no go...still black screen. Channels would change, etc, but it was permanently stuck as a Black Screen.

    Forced a reset (red button reset), all is well.

    This would be the BS as opposed to the BSOD, because the HR20 was not frozen or locked up....but nothing would play, either live or recorded until I rebooted.

    This is my first significant bug since I've been using the HR20, and I'm virtually certain that I caused it by feeding it a very messed up OTA signal, repeatedly. Looks like some error trapping is in order.

    0x120 firmware, details of my setup are in my signature.

    When I went to bed last night my HR20 was tuned to Channel 78 (HDNM). It was turned off but was recording Back To The Future Part III. When I turned on the receiver this afternoon my TV screen was black (no picture or audio) when tuned to Channel 78. I tried tuning in Fox News (Channel 360) and still had no picture or audio. Eventually what I found out was only the local HD satellite channels would give me a picture with audio. All other chnanels I tried to tune to would only give me a black screen with no audio. I did a RBR and now everything is back to normal. I checked my recording of Back To The Future Part III. It is fine.

    Interesting. I did a manual record 5 minutes early and 5 minutes late (manual record on my Tivo as well). Did you record from the guide for yours? If so, how did you get it on both HR20's? I thought that if you set up record from the guide you had to purchase it once for each machine you wanted to watch it on. A CSR told me if I wanted to watch a PPV on more than one machine, I should order it online and do a manual record on each box I wanted to watch it on so I only have to pay once.

    almost the same thing here, yet shows on disney recorded blacks. mid-reset right now as we speak.

    maybe while its in the middle of pulling "satellite settings: it'll allow us to play from the list, like the tivo does

    EDIT: the shows that i thought recorded black, actually work after a reset.

    Must be recording Back to the Future that's causing the problems as that was what I was recording this morning when the freeze occured! :D

    I'm worried now though...After several reboots, it's not coming back, it goes through the restart process as if everything is okay, but then freezes with the giant DirecTV logo blue screen and that's it.

    I'm trying a forced software download now to see if that helps!

    If I miss the Super Bowl because of this poor quality product I'm going to be really upset! :mad:

    Update: Forced software download didn't help! I can't get this unit to get past the boot up! Any suggestions desparately welcome!

    Update: It goes through the normal start up, get to 82% of satellite info, then the satellite progress bar goes away and I'm just left with a frozen unit display the logo on a blue background...

    Had "This Week with George Stenonopolous" on 87 set as SL for 8a PST today. HR20 in standby during total time of recording. Turned on about 11a to watch. For some reason, only last 16 minutes was recorded. History lists it as Partial recording starting at 844a.

    Finally got my picture back! Don't know if I was just lucky or if I actually did something that solved the problem! :confused:

    I disconnected the "B-band" device and only connected 1 satellite cable back to the system. This time when it restarted, the picture came back!

    I'm not touching anything until after the Super Bowl!

    Was watching live TC and for some reason it would not pause, also I couldn't fast rewind, nothing would happen. Went to a recording and both worked ok, back to live TV and again the pause and rewind didn't work.

    Wasn;t watching closley, but an hour or so later was working fine again.

    For the record I lost CC a couple nights ago, and finally got around to resetting the box this morning. It's working again. That's another strange bug that's been around for awhile.

    I would like to add that it seems like the posts are not piling on in this release's issue thread. That's good news.

    Besides the BSBs coming out of standby and the nuisance with the CC loss, it's been solid.

    Last evening my HR20 was behaving as if it had only one tuner. With one channel recording I'd get a "tuner in use" message if I tried to watch a different channel. Recording scheduling worked the same way - I couldn't schedule two recordings simultaneously.

    A reboot from the setup menu fixed it. (Fortunately.)

    I got someone to second this problem before posting on this thread. I don't know if this has been noticable, but ever since the x120 load, my remote has been 'squirrelly'. The blue light indicates the transmission but I get non-response sometimes and when I re-click, both happen at the same time. Or sometimes one click acts hyper sensitive and double clicks into the menu. It can be quite frustrating.
