Hello, I've been trying to read and search for issues similar to mine but have been unable to find anything. I apologize if this has been answered before. My HR20 starting acting weird a few months ago. Some recordings would not playback properly. Picture would freze, then the recording would skip several seconds or minutes, play for a few seconds, and do it again until the end of the recording was reached. Here's a video of my original HR20-700 doing this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m-sELdWmQfs It only happened with recordings, and not with all of them, but with about 80% of the recorded shows. Never with Live TV. I called DirecTV since I assumed it was a bad hard drive. My receiver is leased so I got them to send me a replacement. I got another HR20-700 that I plugged in and powered up. After setting up all my recordings, I discovered it was doing the exact same thing, plus it was rebooting very often. I discovered the reboot issue is due to me not having LOS to 119° and I have a Slimline5 dish. I had never had this issue before and I've been living at this apartment with the dish in the same spot (or roughly in the same spot, had to move it a month ago) and I don't think I've ever had LOS to 119 so I've had the message about guide data not being received for ages, but it had never rebooted. Anyway, I'll fix this by getting a SWM 3LNB and replacing my current 5LNB. I'm not sure if the lack of LOS to 119 is causing my playback issues. Anyone experience this before? Live TV always works perfectly. Re-watching a show that is recorded from Live TV will always work, at least immediately. I have had some shows immediately go to "Do you want to delete" but I think these were recorded during the time the receiver wanted to reboot. Hope someone can shed some light! Thanks in advance!
