    Anyone else having trouble with VHF high channels? For some reason my channel 8 (7) here went from 90% to 20% over the last few days on both my HR20s.. I also have a 3 (2) OTA and it is fine (in the same antenna farm)... I don't have a atsc tuner in my tv to check..
    This is WOODTV-DT out of Grand Rapids MI..

    OK, solved this one. For some reason my PC decided my Pinnacle HDTV tuner was a public network, and for security reasons it had disabled media shariing. So here's another reason to avoid VISTA, and now that I've disabled that "public" network my music is playing fine through my HR20s.

    I have noticed this over the past few days, as well. Same station (YESH, MPEG4) same day and same time.

    I use Vista with TVersity and the PC only show up once. Music plays fine but under the pictures the thumbnails seem to really slow (or stop) the HR20.

    Wish there was a way to turn off the picture thumbnails.

    I lost caller ID with the latest update. I received the national update and did not force this one. I will reset and see if it returns.

    I had the same as many others, multiple computers listed from my network, on the My Computers list of "Music & Photos". A reboot of the system brought it back to normal, showing one entry for each computer currently on.

    Just had my first ever recording that could not be watched using all trickplay features. If using 30 sec skip it would make the recording freeze. When using anything faster then 1x fwd the do you want to keep or delete message pops up.

    I'm not sure where to put this. I wouldn't classify this as a software issue nor do I feel it needs a seperate thread. But in an effort to report any hiccups....

    I came home this evening, went downstairs, hit the power button on the HR20......... No lights and no display...however the Fan and HDD was spining. So it was running to a certain degree. a RBR did not work.

    I had to pull the plug. All is well now after power cycling.

    I have had the same problem (having to unplug the unit and plug it back in) for the past two days. This issue started with the automated download of 17E.

    I have the same problem and have reported it. It doesn't seem that anybody has an answer. RBR twice hasn't helped. Hopefully this will be fixed on the next CE.

    Hmmm ... maybe forcing a national release like that is a problem.

    So far, my DVR is 5 for 5 recording shows that were on the to-do list!

    Did they fix something with the latest couple of releases? (I was a few weeks out of
    date with CE's).

    I also like seeing the date/time of the upgrade in the history.... Very nice addition.

    I had fallen asleep watching the Marlins-Giants game on ESPN and woke up to a frozen screen with a picture reminiscent of when we get heavy cloud cover. I was able to make out that it happened in the top of the 6th inning. :nono2:

    So out came the network connection (which I had restored on Monday the 23rd) and did a RBR and it came back up.

    I don't believe it has naything to do with the Royals lousy resolution of their broadcast (and YES, I agree it is horrible... probably the worst resolution of any sports network).

    Turned on the system this morning and had a BLACK screen with no audio. The menu works but no channel displays anythingnot even the OTA channels. Restarted the HR20 and everything is back to working. This is the third time this has happened at this code level.

    Ever since I got the 0x17e upgrade on 7/25, my local FOX station's HD programming is out of sync. Standard Definition programming is fine. All of my other local HD channels are in sync. I tried a reboot with little success.

    I can't imagine this is the local station's problem since everything was fine before the upgrade. My HR20-600 does not have this problem.

    Any suggestions on getting this fixed? I've had to start watching these programs in SD !

    I have had to boot my HR-20 700 several times to correct a No Video, No Audio situation. I am always in the HD channels and when switching channels, I have the guide info only. I can switch to any channel, still nothing. The only thing that will correct the problem is a reboot through the menu. I am connected by HDMI to the display. This problem has never ocurred with the last national release. It is getting to be very annoying to say the least. It is only happening with one of my units btw.:(

    1. Receiver Model: HR20-700
    2. Method: RBR
    3. Date/Time: 7-28-07 0510 am CDT
    4. HR20 is Networked: NO
    5. Software Version: 0x17E
    6. Reason for RBR: While in guide selected channel 98 schedule, it was showing upcoming: NGC HD Sneak peek 42 which was to show on 7/30 4:00a - 4:45a. I accidently pushed select. The screen went black, remote would not work and the only button on front panel that would work was power. RBR Restored full function.

    Super crop bug is back, as bad as ever. Nothing new to report, but it's not getting better either.
