For the first time I am getting the screensaver pop up bug
I recorded several episodes of "Enterprise" on ScifiHD yesterday.
One I rewound to from the current episode and hit the record button. It recorded that episode but from two minutes after the hour(58 minutes long).
In the Playlist this episode was not in the folder with the rest of them.
Is everyone with a HR21-100 on 0x01f8 now.
Not me. Is it still streaming?
Edit: Guess not, it's cycling round and round. Looks like I'll be on 0195 for awhile...
Still showing on http://www.redh.com/dtv/index.php?r=HR21-100
not sure about downloading but cant hurt to try.
If I understand the firmware site correctly, the firmware isn't in the stream.
The x1F8 is showing Saturday night. It seems that there isn't a software version for the HR21-100 in the stream.
Have I got this right?
Not sure if you are correct or not but it has been my experience thus far that nothing stays in the stream for this box. I guess that's because there is no real national release yet.
Had a bit of trouble today, somewhat similar to what others have posted here.
I got a call from Mrs. Pinion this afternoon. The HR21 had gone to the screen saver while she was watching live TV, cutting off audio and video. She hit a button on the remote, and it went back to live TV. After a few minutes, screen saver kicked in again (this is when she called me). Once she got it back out of the screen saver again, she received an error message on the screen that the programming was being "Blacked Out" (she was on History HD). I had her hit channel up (to History International) and she got the same "Blacked Out" message (I think she said code 727...? Not 100% on that one).
I had her to a menu reset.
Once the HR21 had finished rebooting, the channels that were "Blacked Out" were now working normally. This all occurred within the same 1/2 hour, so I highly doubt both channels were actually blacked out. At this point, she went into the Guide to browse through. The station she was on was running fine in the upper right, and the Guide was there, until she hit the Up Arrow. When she hit the up arrow, the picture in the preview in the top right went black, sound cut out, and all of the Guide information disappeared. The blue layout of the Guide itself was still showing, just all the text in the program guide, info, time, everything went blank, and the HR21 was now locked up tight. She said the LED ring on the front of the HR21 was very dim, and doing the spinning motion, however the unit was completely unresponsive.
I had her do a Red Button Reset and it has been fine since then.
By the way, now that this firmware version supports DOD, I show it activated in EDGECUTTER, but cannot access channel 1000, and if I click on On Demand in the menu, I get the error "beep" sound.
This probably has an answer out there somewhere, but how long does it take for DirecTV's system to see that I have DOD activated on my end and activate the box accordingly? I'm assuming it's a per account thing that's not just there immediately, especially since they're still in beta on it, right?
Take a look at http://www.dbstalk.com/showpost.php?p=1433807&postcount=8 might help. Mine came right on but then again i have an HR20 that had it already.
Take a look at what? I don't see a link or anything.
EDIT: Now there is a link there. Strange, swear it wasn't before. :lol: Thanks Wayne!
EDIT #2: That won't work for me unfortunately. I have a password on my account, so it went to transfer me to a CSR. I hung up as soon as it started to say "Since you have a password...". I'll just wait it out patiently. Thanks again!
For the record I got DoD instantly Friday night, however I also have a HR20 that is already activated. It appears activation is for the whole account.
Three recordings on 1f8 came up with a blank screen
1. HOUSE after the superbowl FOX
2. Rock of love 2 VH1
3 America's game NFLN
Update on Media Share. This morning I was able to access pictures, albeit very slowly, but they did work. Video still caused the unit to act goofy, did not play the video, and kept the video title on the info banner until I did a menu reset.
In case I didn't list what I'm using before I'm on XP Home with WMP11.
I can confirm that video acts the same way with TVersity. After several channel changes, the banner eventually updates.
I should have tried more I guess. I channeled up and down through a few channels, and the banner changed to each of those channels, but when I got back to the channel I was originally on the banner still had the video name on it. I didn't give it a ton of time to change though, a couple minutes at most.
I downloaded two more VODs this morning.
I was able to watch them after they completed download.
I still can't watch the ones I downloaded on Sat.
I will see if I can stil watch the new ones when I get home today.
so were you not able to watch while it was downloading either like I reported here??... http://www.dbstalk.com/showpost.php?p=1430455&postcount=5
Actually these were 4 & 7 minutes so I didn't even try.
I will test that out tonight also.
ok thanks! the show it happened to me on was 24 minutes or so in length...
