    Hi all,

    I had my first problem with my HR20. I went on vacation and I left the unit on standby. When I got back it would not respond to any buttons at all. I had to unplug it and plug it back in to get anything to work. I left Saturday morning and returned this evening (Thursday). I am not sure exactly when it locked up but it did record the race Sunday and something Monday night. The only other show I know that was set to record was Wednesday night but it was not recorded.

    I had 40% free space on the DVR when I got it back up and running.

    Any ideas how to avoid this problem in the future?

    Thanks, Mike

    Doubt there is anything that you did to cause this. The HR20 is basically a computer and certainly prone to crashing (significantly less now than when it was first introduced). This shouldn't be any cause for concern unless it becomes a frequent issue.

    Do you have it on a UPS?
