    Sorry about that, I had DOD on the mind from reading another thread and responding to your first question. :)

    But, the answer is the same. Hopefully coming in a future upgrade, along with the ability to modify the Channels I Get list.

    HR 20: My guide page locks up when using the arrows to move up or down. It works fine using the page up/down function. After a few seconds it unfreezes, but loses the background and grid lines leaving only the show names.

    Channel changes are also very sluggish, much like when using "native mode".

    Update: Over a days time the thing really started acting up. I was able to fix it using a software reset.

    I had the same problem 3 times in a month. the only way I fix it is with a reset.
    I also have freezes problems and the only way it will work is to unplug the receiver.

    unsure if this is an issue but my wife just was scrolling down the todo list and the top program's 'print' was just repeated every 1/4 inch and overlapping all the way down. It was like you scrolled and it didnt redraw the other items. But the 1st item was fine and 'smeared' down the list over top of all else

    Does anyone else notice a jerkyness to playback? While watching last night every 5 seconds or so it's like a frame skip would occur, the motion and sound jump ahead slightly. I also notice the same thing happens when the screen saver is up after a long pause, it is not a smooth bounce around the screen, it stops and jerks just like the regular shows... Is this a known issue or an I having hardware problems?

    I started to get this issue with this software upgrade. Randomly when playing back HD shows from the DVR, the box will freeze, the picture and the audio will stop. The other odd thing is that if you try to do something with the remote at the time the box is frozen, the HR20 will be unresponsive but when the box comes back to life it will perform the task.

    It is as if there is an issue in the HD buffer from the DVR. As if the ram get full and it is low reading the file from the hard drive.

    This issue never happens with SD shows from the DVR

    I got the same symptom last week. The unit also seemed to ignore first keypresses while in this mode. Exiting the menu and going in again would clear the issue for a while, but it eventually came back. I restarted the unit, and the issue hasn't returned.

    Got bit by a bug last night. Had my main room HR20-100 set to record Heros via OTA tuner. Never had a problem with this previously. However, I decided to also record a show on SciFi HD. I vaguely remember hearing something about the OTA tuner going bezerk when the other tuner was set to an MPEG4 channel.

    I found out the hard way because I tried to watch Heros at about 40 minutes into the recording. The recording pixellated, and froze a few minutes into the show. It then stopped and asked me if I wanted to delete it. The history showed it as a Partial recording. When I went back to the live OTA channel, it showed progress (green) in the play bar dating back to the time that the recording stopped (approx 9:03), but it would not let me go to the beginning of the live buffer.

    Luckily, I have two HR20s and the other unit recorded fine. I did not have the 2nd unit set to record the MPEG4 show and I believe it was tuned into ESPN on the live tuner.

    This is a major problem for me. I can't be worried every time I have two shows scheduled to record and remain conscious of whether one is MPEG4 and the other is OTA.

    DirecTV, Please work this out!

    After deleting one program and starting another, a green bar occupied the left 10% of the screen. The bar persisted in recorded material, and live TV, both from D* and OTA, and occurred at all resolutions.

    Pushing the Off and On buttons restored normal operations.

    These video break-ups and audio drop-outs are really starting to drive me nuts. Last night I could have sworn there was a giggling gremlin somewhere pressing the "scramble" button right at the moment of every other punchline on 30 Rock. (And I have fantastic, wide open LOS to my local broadcast towers, so there's no way weak signal is to blame.)

    Of course there's an alternative to OTA -- all that unwatchably out-of-sync programming via satellite....

    Oh, and where the heck did my Caller ID go? Haven't seen it since the update.

    You are right! I just realized I haven't seen it either.

    I had the same problem, it seemed like my OTA Tuner 2 kept dropping the signal for no discernible reason. I got a replacement receiver and the problem is better, but still there, and still on Tuner 2.

    I recently got a replacement receiver. I hooked it up, saw that it was an old software version, so I left it overnight.

    Next morning I had 0x1BE and DOD showed up in my menu.
    Then I hooked up my external Freeagent Pro Drive. System rebooted to an old software version again. (this was a brand new drive) Again let it sit overnight and the next morning I had 0x1BE again, but DOD does not show up in my menu now. Any suggestions?

    Give it some time, takes awhile for D* to recognize the new receiver and enable DOD.

    I'll add my bugs here as well:

    1. no caller ID

    2. Instant Keep or Delete with no ability to view the program

    3. If I change channels in the guide, and quickly hit guide again, it will default to the channel I was previously on and not the new channel

    1) My cordless phone has caller ID on the handset, so that's not a problem for me. Also, since the phone cord is not necessary, why bother running one? I did activate it before the upgrade, but didn't care for it. Didn't even know it is now missing.

    2) I'm not sure what you mean here?

    3) Knowing that it takes a bit of time for the tuner to change channels, don't be in such a hurry. :)

    1. I'm happy you don't need it, but i am used to my Caller ID popping on the TV, and now it doesn't.

    2. Its been reported a # of times, so unless you are going to fix it, don't worry to much if you don't know what I mean.

    3. The picture came in on the new channel, so the tuner itself changed, but the guide still went to the old channel. Its a bug one way or the other, but thanks for the feedback.

    2) Okay. now I think I know what you meant. I just haven't experienced it. Is it where when you select to watch a recording it doesn't have the viewing option?
