    Started seeing the A/V dropouts again. No pixellations. Just saw an audio dropout register on my Sony receiver. Just watching the Olympics on NBC live and saw one audio dropout register on my Sony receiver. Damn, I thought they were gone.

    0395 is now there for all HR2x.
    This means doing a forced download will get it.
    This isn't true for 4395 for the non DVRs.

    My HR23 has started to get slow again, the speed lasted for 2 weeks, now it takes about 5 seconds after pressing Menu or guide for anything to come up! Previous release was great, this one is not looking good so far.

    I had to RBR my HR20-100 when I got home last night due to the unit being unresponsive to the remote. This is the second time I've had to do this since getting 0x0395.

    Had to reset my box after the system went nuts...

    In a 3-hour curling program, I pressed Replay several times, fast, and ended up at the start of the recording. No surprise there; it happens frequently.

    Then I pressed FF and Skip to try to get back to where I had been, and ended up at the end of the recording. Again, not much of a surprise.

    But then the box ignored every keypress; I entered many Play, Skip, FF commands. I waited for a minute and found myself in a Guide that was rapidly paging up and down and or right and left, much faster than I could ever have made it go using the remote.

    Finally it settled down and I was able to access the Menu and do a Reset.

    All I know is my HR21-200 is slow as a turtle. My HR20-100 runs faster it seems. Do not know what is going on!

    The two boxes use two different chip sets which most have said is the reason for the speed difference.

    True, but the 21-200 I have is not slow. Damn near as fast as my 20-700s. Hard to find those things.

    I guess consider yourself lucky then. I have a HR20-700, HR21-100, HR22-100 and HR23-700 and all are slower then my HR20-700.

    It is a bit slower for some things, but not enough to be annoying. Not as slow as my 21-700s, for example. Been very reliable too. And is undoubtedly more expensive to build, which is why they are so rare. I think I've seen only one member post that he has a 22-200, for instance and you don't see many posts about the 21-200s.

    I suppose it depends on your tolerance. Maybe I'm lucky my HR21-200 doesn't show the extreme sluggishness that some experience, but I'm spoiled by my SA TiVo, my SD DirecTiVo and my HR10-250 and I won't accept anything less as far as response time goes.

    I'm anticipating further performance improvements in the next National release on all models.

    There was no performance improvements with this release. The vast majority of users responding to the speed poll report either (i) no improvement or (ii) a slowdown. As of today, 50% of respondents report a slowdown. Claims of "further" improvement simply have no factual basis

    You have made the claim that the "next release will be faster" with nearly every future release. With a few notable exceptions, it has never come to pass.

    Spare us the booster-ism, please. The facts don't support it.

    The performance of Multi-Room Viewing will definitely improve .. That you can take to the bank.

    Where did the sort by expiration go too? I lost that about two updates ago. My daughter and I watch a lot of the anime from the On-Demand and it's such a pain to have to scroll thru the whole list to find out what programs expire when. It was so much nicer when the "sort by" had "expiration". :nono2: I hope they put this back.

    Heck or even a way to filter the list to just view all the on-demand downloads you downloaded only.

    Is there any way to sort playlist alphabetically but sort shows WITHIN folders by DATE? Who watches shows alphabetically? But when you watch 5 episodes of a show most people watch them chronologically.

    And I guess I'll give up on the DVR ignoring "The" in titles when sorting a la iTunes. I'd love to see that as default or as an option.

    Thanks

    I have the same problem. It started with the next to last release. If I rewind and play it again, most of the time it is ok. It seems worse on the OTA channels. I never have a problem when watching 'live', its when I'm watching a recorded program. Sometimes is much worse and other times it doesn't happen at all. I watched Chuck last night an the beginning had many audio dropouts and video breakups, the last half didn't have any. About the only thing I watch live anymore is the news, so it is getting annoying.
