Yes, it's something in the stream that got screwed up. And apparently it's not easy to fix either.
If it weren't for this thread, I may have never noticed I have this problem too. I guess I never change channels anymore. That is so 20th century.
Please Please Please directv if you don't do anything else with the next update please put the yellow CC button back like it was. DIX!
The Yellow button is going to be used to access PIP functions on the new HR34.
Yup, so don't expect the yellow button to do anything for the HR2X's after a few updates.
Did you flush the guide*? If your suspicion is right- and I think you've hit it- that MAY fix it for many.
* Two restart within 30 minutes.
Sounds like DirecTV might have made some changes last night to help take care of this issue. People having the long channel changes, slow response, etc. should try to reboot their receivers now, and then wait 20 minutes. After that they should start working better.
Shades28 posted about this last night.
It isn't necessary to flush the guide, just a single RBR.
Sorry, but customers shouldn't need to flush the stored Guide data to improve the Guide speed. That's only a temporary fix and doesn't explain the intermittentness of these SLOWDOWNS
The slowdowns have been fixed, all that's needed is a single restart.
Because this past week has been the worst week for this intermittent SLOWDOWN on my three HR21-100s - two CEs & one NR And as a CE'r, I do a new install every week.
BTW my last intermittent SLOWDOWN was only a few hours ago.
Read 4 posts above yours that I'm quoting.
I've been experiencing the slow channel changes too...seems to be specific channels for me, what the H? HR24-500.
Seems a few folks have corrected the problem with a reset .. Just flip the door on the lower right of your DVR and press the red button inside. No guarantees, but like I said, it's helped some folks with this particular issue .. Although most affected are with HR21s or HR20s.
In the past, that worked to cure the hiccup on my HR21-200 and HR24-100 both. Good suggestion.
Well, I noticed the problem was MUCH better this weekend. Yes, I did a dual reboot with the 1/2 hour window, and it got better, but it got a lot better July 1st or 2nd. I don't know if the problem is "fixed" or not, but for the moment it is improved.
I just got the 0x4a7 update on my HR23-700. I don't seem to notice much of a change at all. I've had that new/enhanced banner now for a while. I've seen discussions of the yellow button removing the CC function, but I still have it and never lost it Am I missing something about this new update?
The complaint is that it takes more key presses to get to CC, not that it's gone.
My HR24-100 & HR21-200 are so slow and unresponsive that we are about ready to throw them out the window. This is ridiculous DirecTV!!
I got the same overnight.. 0x4a7 to my HR23-700
