    After this update, video/audio sync is horrible. It seems slightly off some of the time, but is off as much as 4-5 seconds as time. Yeah, no kidding. Hear an explosion, then see something enter the screen, hit something, then explode. Very much ruins the experience.

    Component video, composite audio
    HD channels only (all I watch)

    I finally did a reset and the 02468 trick at the beginning and it is now loading the newest software. Wonder why it wasn't pushed to my box?

    What is the 02468 trick? Please give details since I still haven't gotten it. Yes, there are issues I've heard, but I'm sure not everyone is having problems.

    Thought I had the update yesterday because I was able to successfully perform a Remote Recording through the D* website. Came home to find out no and still says no update scheduled.

    That's because that is the current national release. You'd have to do it only during the CE release windows.

    I have absolutely horrible video/audio sync issues with this release. When playing back a recording and FF'ing through something, and then hitting play the audio/video is ALWAYS off by several seconds. Hitting Pause then Play gets it back in sync. I have to do this EVERY time I FF.

    It happens with recordings made both before and after I received the update. It happens with OTA recordings, MPEG2 and MPEG4 satellite recordings.

    I'm using HDMI for the video to the monitor, and the optical audio to my audio receiver.

    Before this update, I saw this maybe 1 out of 100 times I FF'ed. But since the update it is 100/100.

    Is there some way to get this fixed?

    Had to go back to the old version. I had chanels that would not display and recorded programs that the sound would run but the video was a still. I had about 5 channels that would display a black screen and no sound.

    Watching Prison Break on Fox 17 HD (Grand Rapids, Michigan). It is set to record series - first run only. I started watching 15 minutes into the show, the audio and video are 4-5 seconds off. The video seems to "fast forward" 1/2 second every 30-40 seconds and subsequently the audio is more out of sync.

    If I pause and then play, the audio and video are synced again for a few seconds before becoming horribly out of sync.

    I have the HR20, with HDMI to the TV.

    Searched and didn't find reference to "screensaver" - but that's what is appearing while watching a recording. After the usual amount of time when not doing anything on one of the music channels, we're all used to the screensaver popping up.

    If I'm watching a recording - and one of the tuners is set to one of the music channels - I now get the screensaver popping up over the recording. Hitting any button gets rid of it.

    Setting the tuner to a channel other than a music channel - prevents it from happening, again.

    I've rebooted. Didn't change a thing.

    Not a problem - unless I forget and go straight into a recording from listening to music.

    Something is very weird regarding searches in 0x1EA.

    1) I attempted to reuse some saved searches for channel IDs, like HBOWHD, and all HBO channel-based searches now pointed at 510, a DTV channel. Other channel searches (MGMHD, STRZHD) pointed at other places, too.

    2) After deleting all my saved searches, I then went to recreate them. When I went to the search-by-channel alpha entry screen, I noted that the channels were unsorted on the right. Even after entering a few letters, the sorting of channels on the RHS was rather iffy. Some appeared as expected, some did not, and some that did appear didn't belong.

    Either there's a bug or I have some severely corrupted index file. Since this is the only place it shows up, and not in, say, the program guide or favorites setup, I tend to favor the "bug" theory.

    How do you go back to the previous s/w version? I would love to do that -- this new one has caused me previously flawless box all sorts of problems.

    If Ox1EA was pushed to your box, it's the only version that you can download manually.

    Is there anyway to stop the new download? Haven't gotten yet and a little upset, but now all this info is making me scared.
