    Kind of a strange issue this morning. Turned tv on around 9:30am (HR20 is always on), and "Live" tv was showing Last Call with Carson Daly. I could fast forward, but the progress bar would not move. I record Conan at 12:30am, it would seem something got messed up when it stopped recording that. So I go into my playlist to watch Conan, the recording seems ok. I exit Conan to go back to Live tv, and it's now showing Regis and Kelly (which really is on). I can rewind, but the progress bar at the bottom now says Late Night with Conan O'Brien (as does the info screen), and the progress bar doesn't move while rewinding. Changing the channels fixed the issue, but I've never seen that before.

    Had lockup coming out of Standby. Screen displayed DiercTV Logo on white background with music playing in background. Press of most keys (eg numbers) would cause power LED to blick but no response. Press of List, Guide or Menu would cause screen to go grey for a couple of seconds and then revert back to DirecTV logo. Page Down once yielded grey, then logo. Page Down multiple times ended up with permanent grey screen. HR20 would not power off (remote nor front panel). Did RBR and it restored back to Ch96 and everything works. Here's the requested info:

    Anyone with a "frozen" unit out of standby
    Does the front panel work? No
    Does the remote work? Not as intended, see above.
    What channel did you last leave the unit tuned to? 96
    Did a reset restore functionality? Yes
    If it did... where any programs missed between leaving it standby and you trying to use the system? No, it recorded Nightline at 11:35 as requested.

    Anyone posting any type of LOCKUP issues
    How long did you wait to determin if it was locked up? 5 minutes
    Do you have networking enabled? No
    Do you have OTA enabled? Yes
    Single or Dual tuners inputted Dual

    I experienced my first ever lock up last night (had my HR20 about 3 weeks now). Networking is disabled, both tuners and ota are enabled.

    It was near the end of recording the nightly news that is set to record the series. So about 6:55 to 7:00 PM. I hit List and pressed the Play button on the currently recording news on HD local channel 17. The video and sound continued in the upper right but the list of recordings remained. The recording light even went out at 7:00 PM, but I could not get out of the list or do anything. It did not respond with any buttons on the remote or buttons on the box. I did the RBR thing shortly after 7 PM and it seemed fine the rest of the evening.

    If it matters, I was in the active content checking the weather forecast prior to attempting to watch the news from the beginning. I believe I was actually on the local hd channel 17 when I hit List and then Play though.

    Well had my first real lockup of my HR20 last night, running the 0x134 release. Not sure if any have had this same thing, but the channel I was watching I could view fine, just it seemed like the remote and front pannel was DEAD. Pressing buttons on the remote there was no flicker of the blue LED on the front of the HR20.

    As I was going to bed, I left it overnight, but even in the morning same issue, so I pulled the plug and restarted the unit. After the reboot all was fine!

    I was watching SHOHD at the time, hit the guide button and that was the end of things, I was suck on SHO till the reboot.

    As to the common questions, Dual tuners YES, Networking YES, OTA YES, the remote is running in RF mode, and no special options set outside of the one push guide option..

    Had Jerico scheduled for recording OTA (series, new episodes) @ 7:00pm central. At 6:40 pm I checked the signal strength for OTA and got a message that there was a conflict on the OTA tuner and a scheduled recording (Jerico). Do you want to cancel recording? In order to check signal strengths, I had to pick yes. The recording was canceled. Why? There was no conflict, this was 20 minutes before the scheduled record time. I had to go into the menu and set record again.:eek2:

    I had the same thing happen last night. I got home at 8:00 p.m. central time to see my DVR locked on EPSN2HD. Couldn't change channels...nothing worked. The BEST part is that it didn't record Survivor or American Idol. My wife is not happy...you don't mess with Survivor (now we have to watch it on the internet from CBS web site). Did an RBR and everything is fine. Frustrating though...my wife said to me "how could an average Joe ever work this thing?" and I have to admit that this is still not ready for "the masses".

    I got constant pixelation on Lost with OTA, about every 30 seconds, but I'm not sure why. I didn't start watching it while it was recording, and nothing else was recording at the same time either.

    I think I was watching something else that was already recorded though, so maybe that was affecting it just like trickplay will when I start watching something that is being recorded.

    This thing about trick play and using the HR20 at the same time, while OTA is being recorded causing video/audio glitches really needs to be fixed. It is intermittent from one time to another but its also pretty consistent, especially on 720P.

    I also get a K beside some manual recordings sometimes, like someone else stated.

    Exactly the same lockup at the same time with the same result. No networking but otherwise the same setup.

    When I discovered it it was in the middle of recording survivor, so I let it finish before I rbr'ed. After the reboot survivor recording was not in playlist.

    This is not a bug, it is a feature. Since all buffering is stopped when you edit OTA settings, it notifies you of conflicts within 30 minutes of the current time. It would be better if there were a 3rd choice like "I promise, I'll be done by then, don't worry" but there isn't.

    Hi 1st time poster, long time fan of the site. I currently have two HR20 receivers at the house. I have had them since the OTA HD tuner turned on in early January. While over all I miss some of the functionality of the HR10-250 Tivo software, I have been pleased with the transition. Plus I forced Directv to give me them both for free in exchange for my soul....err allegiance over the next two years. I have been with them without interruption with the premium package since Nov. 1994 back when it was USSB and DirecTV, I only mention this bit of background because what has happened over the last few days with my receivers has me so thoroughly perplexed that I in fact felt the need to share it with all of you. The problem started yesterday, I assume do to the 0x134 update. The both HR20's are on 0x134, the one in the bedroom works as well as the receiver is currently capable of (I miss the dual buffer). The one in the living room however as been possessed. Facts- I have the new slimline dish, I use OTA in the living room, a powered 4x8 switch, HDMI, and yes it is on a belkin clean power surge. signal strength in bedroom and living is for these purposes identical. A – 98 B - 88 C- 94. The problem lies in the 101 or A. The individual transponders 1-32 are consistent between both receivers. So without further ado here’s my problem. Everything except for my locals, HD and Non, the HD channels 70-99 and the 2nd locations of HBO and Showtime HD, fade in and out with a 771 signal loss message. 1. No it is not raining 2. Yes I did hook them both up directly (bypassed the Multiswitch) 3. I took the bedroom receiver to the living room and it worked fine(not a wiring issue) 4. after some testing I discovered that if the other receivers are off and not recording in standby, and I set the receiver to record ch.354 and then change the ch. to another channel on the same path i.e. ch 352 then it will only have signal loss on one tuner. There is also the combination of doing the same thing with an odd 331 and even 236. So I do not think it is an issue with the LNB. Sorry so long winded, does anyone have any ideas.

    Sounds just like my lock up last night. I tried to watch a show that was still recording off of a local channel.

    I completely agree. I do not understand this either. It seems like some programming fopa, much like the 2-button press versus 1-button press for the guide.

    They should lower that warning down to 15 minutes.

    * 2/27 7pm
    * To Iraq and Back, Woodruff Reports
    * 7-1 (Yes, an OTA local - WLSDT)
    * Oops, deleted before a reboot.

    Very odd twist: Instead of a black screen I had a frozen picture (and Dawg, no way am I making this up) of Randy Jackson in the American Idol judges seat! But the banner definitely had the correct ittle and channel. FWIW, Idol was recording at the same time (also OTA).

    Watching Scrubs last night from recording of NBC HD channel and got reverb for 1 second or less 3 or 4 times throughout the show. Rew & FF reproduced the same issue.

    Wife was watching Fox HD, American Idol before that live and she said no issues with audio or video.

    Strange sometimes we have this issue with live sometimes with recorded, does not make a difference.
