both of mine (hr21 and hr22) were locked up again.
Ditto, all of my HR2X boxes were locked and required RBR or pulled power to restart. No lost data though...this time.
My old TiVo SDDVR-40 was still chugging along fine.
Something weird is happening at D* maybe they should provide us Free Tivo HD Boxes after this spectacle
Add me to the list. RBR wouldn't bring unit out of standby, this morning. It took 2 power cycles to get the thing going.
Something may be going on again right now. A bunch of channels went dead for a minute and now 242 (that I was watching) has a color bar test pattern.
Not to belittle your experience, but your situation truly may have been coincidental and not connected to the lockups.
Ok... Here's a beauty for ya...
The dogs haven't been sleeping in their room so I physically unplugged the HR21-100 in that room. It's been unplugged for about 2 weeks now. TA DA!!!
It's locked up too! I was looking at the front panel when I plugged it back in and NO LIGHTS at all! I would have expected it to TRY to power up, get a surge down the transmission signal or something but noooooooooooooo!
Any ideas how the heck something like this scenario happened??
I wonder how many auto manufacturers would stay in business if their top selling model was as unreliable as D*'s HD DVRs?
I guess you never heard of a recall.
D* better do something positive after this, this is ridiculous get the ball rolling and fix the issue already.
AMC lasted a number of years and Fiat is still around.
Turned TV on at 12PM EDT, within the next hour had to unplug all DIRECTV receivers (HR20-100, HR20-700 & HR21-200) twice before leaving. At present time, 4PM, I went to your website and found out that I was not the only one having problems today. Currently all receivers power on. There is considerable comfort in having access to this website to report and problem solve a multitude of questions. Thanks to all who reported this problem earlier in the day and to all who continue to answer questions.
lol, the Pinto of DVR's.......
Checked to see what D* website had to say about what was going on. Went to the tech forum page and found this.
We are currently experiencing an issue with receiver models HR20, HR21, HR22 and R22. If your receiver is not responding to remote control or front panel commands you can most likely resolve this issue quickly by flipping down the door on the front of your set top box and pressing the red button.
If your picture does not come back, please call us at 1-800-531-5000 when you are in front of your TV and a representative will be able to help you with further troubleshooting.
I had two locked up this morning, one was OK.
As of this afternoon, the one which was OK had locked up and needed a RBR. One of the two that got a RBR this morning had locked up again, one was still OK.
Favorites lists were lost on two of the units.
I noticed that if I turn the units off (HR21-700) and then later turn them ON again, it won't - locked up as everyone is experiencing. Red-button reset accompanied by pulling the power plug is the only way back. And sometimes I gotta do it twice. What a pain.
In light of the fact that there are too many shows I watch on Mondays (Dancing w/ Stars, MNF, Heroes, and Sarah Connor Chronicles) I have left it on all day - no more hiccups.
Both HR20-700's needed reboots by unplugging this morning and rbr's a few hours later. Now channel 390 has tech difficulties banner (although sd channel 380 is fine) and usahd channel 242 is and has been frozen on the same frame for some time now. No if related, but am going to check multiple channels.
Yep. Had to unplug mine today, twice. RBR did nothing.
Poor Ford, GM and Chrysler -- their models, over the years, have been very unreliable, and they are all teetering on the brink.
This is downright poor on D*s part. My HR2xs keep on locking up. Are they trying to convert us to Dish Network?
