    Screen saver seems a bit jerkier than I've seen before as I look at it. Sorry that's about all the detail I've got.

    First problem with 0x17E this afternoon ....

    No audio/video on any channel, just black screen. Menus came up fine. Tried playing back several recordings and all immediately brought up "Keep or Delete" message.

    Menu reset solved the problem.

    As in the most recent CE's, the Play button doesn't always respond on the first push. Whether it's with RC34 remote or HR20 I can aim the remote so that FF works and Play doesn't.

    Continuing to have issues with the same receiver. Inadvertent channel changes, no mention of the channel changed to when pressing info. Just the program that was on before. Recording started with black screen and about three minutes in the video started. Second HR20 not having the same issues or just not noticing them.

    Turned on receiver yesterday and no tuner 110. Checked other receiver and it shows no 110. Reset both to no avail. Pulled power plugs on both, still nothing. Called DTV and tech will be out today. Strange that both receivers have lost tuner 110. Never had any problems till 17e install.

    If you have a problem with the LNB for 110 that would cause the problem.

    Thanks. I'll find out today. I also believe that's what the problem is, since both receivers show the same. Wonder if thats why I havn't been able to get 7-1, which should be an easy OTA channel to get. All other OTA channels come in ok.

    Could also be one of the cables that leads from the LNB to the internal multiswitch (the one in the LNB head), the connectors, or the internal multiswitch itself. I'd also check ALL of the connectors on the Zimwell multiswitch.

    Issue: Living room -700 refuses to delete items in the prioritizer with (-) (-).

    Have tried both RF & IR modes. Have restarted the receiver. No luck on removing series links.

    Yes, the super crop bug is still occurring for me too. I tried pressing play several times and eventually the picture seems to stick and hold to the proper proportions. What a nuisance!

    The POS just lost video completely right in the middle of watching the race on ESPN HD. Video froze on a frame from a bud commercial but audio continued. Changed channels to see what would happen and all I get now is no video OR audio. God this thing is such a major pile of s***.

    Once again the old faithful HR10 has to bail this sorry ass excuse for a "advanced" DVR out again.

    The picture window in the Playlist is slightly overlayed on the "group play" tip when you have a group expanded and then scroll to the group folder. The last letter in the word "press" is affected.

    Also, the remote codes don't all list, you get 4 or 5 and if there are more, the rest don't show.

    Since getting this update on on 7/24, had been working great.
    But today saw something I never saw before.

    While family was using the phone, a Call Waiting, Caller ID came in.
    On the TV Screen, half the numbers appeared and instead of numbers in a few places saw a comma, dollar sign, and the paragraph symbol.

    They were scattered in between the correct numbers.

    Huh, would you look at that. The change of the word "open" to "close" extends the first line a little bit under the PIP border. That's a sharp eye!

    I keep forgetting to check for this since I have animations turned off but Video tearing in guide, playlist, search, etc is still an issue when in 1080i, in fact may be worse than the last time I checked. No tearing when in 720p 480i/p, only when in 1080i.

    I had the exact same thing happen last night while recording Gene Simmons. Picture froze, then no video or audio on any channel. Had to reset to get it working again.

    Got a black screen and no audio on all channels. Satellite strength tested out okay. Did a menu reset and everything was fine.
