    Watching HGTV-SD about 15 minutes behind live. FFx3 to live, and there was no audio. Changed channels and audio returned.

    Problem

    Once I started getting the updates for PC Playback I have been having a problem with two recurring manual recordings I have set.

    One of them is for "Sports Nite (Comcast Sports Net HD 629 6:00pm to 7:00pm ET)" and the other is for "NFL Live (ESPN HD 206 4:00pm to 4:30pm ET)".

    Before this CE cycle I would have a separate folders for each manual recording. Now for some reason it is putting both manual recordings in the same folder.

    Updated the first post with a tiny bit of release note information. Basically a merge with the main HR20-700 CE codebase.

    I turned my HR20 on and had Black screen and no sound. I hit the info button and the banner came up with no info on it. (see attached picture) Then I tried to change the channel and it said it went to that channel and in the banner it had the channel number there. But, no logo or info. Then I tried to change the channel to something else then I got a tuner conflict message. There was nothing recording and it didn't give me any choices. (also, see picture)

    I did a reset and it seemed to fix the issue. Also, after the reset it started recording 2 channels. So, it does look like to was recording 2 shows at the time of this issue. But, there was no show in the list that recorded at that time. So, I checked my history and wow! Everything since Saturday 03/08 at 9PM had a status of partial or canceled.

    The Canceled recordings say: This episode was not recorded because the program was no longer available. (13/6/South Park episode type: 2 cid: 1 1 381C3 136)

    The Partial recordings say: This showing is over.

    Problem

    When pausing live TV, when I catch back up to live the picture freezes. I have to hit the reply button to jump back a little and everything is normal again. But it happens every time I catch up to live.

    Problem

    I had a black recording with no audio of "Big Brother After Dark" from last night on Showtime 2 SD (538). The program plays start to finish but the entire thing is a black screen with no audio.

    This unit and my HR21-200 are both connected to my SWM on the same line and they are both connected to the same TV (Sony KDSR60XBR2) via HDMI. I also have a series link set for it on my HR21 and it plays fine on that unit.

    My prioritizer says that I have 37 series links. There are 36 on the list. I haven't tried to see if I can enter a full 50 yet.

    Playback that occurred was:

    http://www.dbstalk.com/showpost.php?p=1499067&postcount=39

    A few minutes after trying to scan for the HR20, I received the following on screen message from the HR20 on my HDTV:

    "The server, DirecTV HMC Lite Server has logged off."

    Additonal info with what happened in the DirecTV.exe application can be found here:

    http://www.dbstalk.com/showpost.php?p=1499071&postcount=127


    I'm sorry that I have info for these issues spread into 3 different threads. With all the different components in this thing I sometimes have a hard time determining which thread is the most appropriate for these issue reports. Since I seemed to have issues with video playback, the application, and then the HR20 I decided to post in all 3...

    Problem

    I have a series link set for "Big Brother After Dark" on Showtime 2 SD (538) from 12:00am to 3:00am ET.

    This is the first time this has happened. When I got up this morning the record light was on so I was wondering what was recording. I check the playlist and nothing was showing recording.

    So I went to reset the receiver and it said it would interrupt "BBAD" if I reset it. I hit ok anyway. After reboot I checked the recording it was already up to 5 hours and 45 minutes of recording and should have only been 3 hours.

    Watching Eli Stone recorded 3/3 on KABC-MPEG4. There were several instances where the picture would freeze and the audio would continue. After 30 seconds, the picture came back.

    Same behavior on Eli Stone recorded 3/10 on KABC-MPEG4. Mrs. Shadow saw this same behavior with a recording of House Hunters on HGTV-HD but didn't note the record time.

    A menu reboot solved the problem.

    Note: this is my first issue-related reboot since last summer sometime.

    After the aforementioned reboot, the list shows 37 series links, however the to do list was completely wiped on reboot. It populated normally, showing over 1 week worth of items within the first 12 hours.

    Choctaw, OK
    Had the this playback problem where the server disconnected.

    Didn't look at the TV output until the next day. Then the DVR had the recording light on but the screen was blank on tuned channels or when attempting to play the in-progress recording. Did a RBR.

    More on this issue:

    I discovered again that after adding another series link, the prioritizer said I had 37 while the Manage Recordings main screen said 38. I looked carefully and there were two #33s! Even if I moved things in and out there were always two #33s. I deleted both #33s and set them back up and the list numbers correctly so far.

    This issue seems to have returned watching TBSHD live on Sunday 3/16 at 6pm PDT. It doesn't seem to occur on other channels I've tried or on on recorded content... at least I'm not seeing it yet.

    Sorry to continue to clog this thread with my issues, and I'm glad the rest of you aren't having them but...

    -It seems that after the last reboot all my showcases are gone. This, combined with the TDL rebuilding, says to me that part of my drive may have gotten messed up.

    -The above TBSHD issue did not repeat later, I watched for about 20 minutes and no problems.

    Dripping...
    It was a few CE's ago in the regular CE's (noted it in the release issues) but all my Showcases on one of my HR20-700's also went away.

    Another instance of frozen frames:

    I was trying to share video using TVersity. I hadn't updated the library, so I got an error saying that I couldn't play the video I wanted. Upon pushing exit I came back to a frozen frame. The tuner was on KNBC-DT (4.1 OTA) at the time.

    A reboot seems to have fixed the problem but once again the To Do List was trashed after rebooting, showing only the next 4 hours of programming

    My hypothesis at this point is that these frozen frames are the result of a process going "zombie" as a result of an improper termination... either from pushing data to the DIRECTV.exe app or trying to pull it from a server.

    At this point I am going to stop trying to share media or use DIRECTV.exe until the next version push. My apologies to the developers as I want to be an active part of this test but so far am not experiencing any positive results nor any new/different negative ones.

    This is something a little weird on my HR20. A couple of days ago my available space on my receiver was around 24% and now tonight all of the sudden it is up to 59%. I wonder what happened? Nothing had changed. If anything more HD 1/2 hour shows was added.

    I thought 24% was incorrect last week because I didn't think I had that much stuff saved on it. Oh well. :D

    My To Do List is only populated out to 3/27. I think I would not record anything on 3/28 or 3/29. I do have guide data for those days. This is a long way out but my HR21's to do list is populated out to 3/30.

    Continuing update (this thread is beginning to look like my personal blog)

    Items from 3/30 did populate on my HR20 as of 10:30AM PDT, 3/19. Guide data from 3/31 PM is still incomplete so it looks like the prioritizer is doing its job.

    Other than the screen saver jumping from point to point instead of animating, I have had no problems since the last reboot - I have made no attempts to share media or use HMC PC Playback.
