Hey Texbrit I'm going to believe that your observations are unique to your equipment. I did a RBR on my HR20-100 on September 6. After doing it my receiver was again recording on-time. It's now 9 days later, and my receiver clock is about 15 sec. behind. I have a TIVO DVR in my bedroom, and there is never a discrepency in the start time. I believe that Directv needs to do a daily syncing of their receivers. Thanks, though, for doing your research.
