    Froze up watching via MRV and the lost audio. Sent a report, but will update the issues thread in the morning.

    Has anyone else lost their Misc menu? Mine seems to have disappeared and performing the keyword search has not brought it back.

    In the spirit of CE testing, and of course a lot of liquid courage (sweet tea), I "reset all".

    Will let everyone know how it works later this week.

    When it comes to the audio/video freeze/loss or not with trick play, would a poll to determine who is having these problems and when help D*? As I have noted before on my HR24-100 I am not having any issues on local recordings and mrv is so choppy I have not tested it. A poll could show each unit then no issues, issues with mrv, issues with local or issues with both.

    Just a thought.

    I'm particularly interested to see if that worked.

    I'm hopeful he'll see some improvement prior to the next release. If not, doesn't sound like he was able to watch the box anyway:

    All I've done so far is watch a little live TV, and record (but not watch, yet) several shows. I did try a few minutes of a recorded show via MRV (HR24 as server, HR20 as client) and it worked great, but didn't do any trickplay...need more testing to be sure. I am still hearing the occasional audio drop/freeze.

    Steve. more and more folks are reporting the same symptoms that I've been seeing with the pauses, freezes etc. I have a feeling that there;s something in the code and lot of it depends on how you use the HR24.

    If you just use it to watch, without any MRV or trickplay it seems to work fine.

    If you watch something that's been recordd, or try to pause live TV and use trickplay then you run into problems. At least that's what the reports out here seem to be saying.

    Finally got to set aside some time to beat on the h24-700 that's in bedroom.

    Lots of MRV all day, with gobs of trickplay.... I was watching the 55th match of the IPL they showed on the 101. At one point while i cooked dinner it spent nearly an hour paused while the server, (h)r22 started and stopped several recordings, was serving up live TV to the LR, and was doing it's own trickplay. I also served up several recordings off the HR20-700 that's also in the living room while it was doing it's thing.

    End result, about 6+ hours of MRV watching and not one blip. Everything i was watching was live recorded sporting events so of course there were blips, glips, pixelation and other anomolies, but they were all repeatable right up until i got tired of rewinding things and checking.

    everyone is on a swm system, the 3 IRD's in question are hooked up to a belkin 10x100 switch without anything else on the system, and no internet connection until i figure out what's broken and get the internet connection in that area fixed again.

    I've been watching both local HR24 recordings and using it as an MRV client all week-end, with normal trickplay to get through commercials (30SKIPS and REPLAYS). Performance has been glitch-free. I'd estimate we've watched at least 6-7 one-hour shows over two days.

    Believe me, I know how frustrating it is when others are having issues and someone else says they aren't, so I almost hesitate to say things are going well here, but it's what I'm seeing... at least so far.

    The only HR24 issue I have to report so far this week is the black screen with no audio on LIVE TV. REPLAY seems to take care of that.

    I've also been keeping an eye out for reports from itzme and mhayes. As we know, both of them missed the first two s/w pushes (I just missed the first). So far, I haven't seen any issue posts from them, but they may be having them and have so far been unable to post.

    I know where you are coming from. When the HR20 was new, I did not have anywhere near the issues some were having. Same with MRV. It was very usable for me from Day 1 (original H21 CE cycle).

    So don't feel bad that you are not having issues. Everyone has a different setup which is why we get to do this. :)

    Yes.

    Part of the testing process is that most of us have different infrastructures/setups/network configurations, so results will likely vary - no surprises there. Part of the goal is to get the results as consistent as possible.

    For that reason, reporting them (problem or no problem) would be important. Everyone so far seems to be doing a very good job along those lines.

    Steve, I hear ya. While everyone was having trouble years ago with the HR20's I had no issues... it always worked flawlessly. So now I know the frustration that some of those folks were having.

    Anyway, I can't wait to see what Alan reports after doing a complete reset, and yeah, Itzme and Mike should be able to add even more to the mix.

    I watched TV for a few hours last night with no issues on my H24. MRV with trickplay is working fine with the R22-200 and HR20-700. Live is great too. You guys are just watching the wrong shows I guess :lol:

    I did report the live freeze that just happened. Over the weekend I found native (non MRV) playback pretty flawless. Audio dropouts were rare and consistent with my other HRs. Audio drops, though few, seem to be in the transmission of the signal rather than the hardware, since they are repeatable if you jump back.

    But I did watch an HD recording of Saturday Night Live using the HR24 as client and my HR21-700 as server (Cat5, same room as HR24), and found trickplay to be "clunky and lagging." The HR24 would drop audio frequently when I did 30 sec skips through the commercials. FF would give me an unsatisfactory choppiness that made it hard to tell how far forward I was going. I found myself having to look at the progress bar for feedback on my FF progress, because the on-screen FF image frequently stayed on one frame too long. So I had clunky and inconsistent visual feedback on my FF progress. The lag made me very aware that I was MRVing.

    I watched some SD content in MRV also, and trickplay was much smoother than what I reported with the HD Saturday Night Live.

    I was able to use it some. Sometimes I was able to go hours before a problem, sometimes less than an hour.

    If I had a problem, a restart solved it. If I couldn't restart it due to a recording, I could switch to the HR23-700. If it locked up, well, my recording was probably toast anyway. :nono2:

    May have some time to test tonight. We'll see.

    I had an issue with the HR24-100 earlier today. Sent a report, and will post it later tonight.

    Just a quick note here. I watched Pacific w/ the HR24 as the server to an HR20 via all hardwired and the only hiccup was a very minor 1 second lockup. That was it. Trickplay when used worked fine last night. I saw no reason to send a report for it. It was so short it almost didn't happen.
