    Downloaded with no problem, no problems on reboot, cleared out and readded ATSC channels with no problem, SLIP and Skip Back do seem faster to me and all my recording are there and working fine. Network connectivity is fine and no DD audio drop outs or "woodpeckers" as I saw one person describe them. I had the woodpecker occasionally on DISCOVER-HD but havent watched it yet to see if it went away.. so far so good...

    if we can keep this thread about the issues with the release, the other "posts" can go into the discussion thread.

    I'm not certain this is a bug with 0x115 or not. My wife said she got the same message with this particular recording on 0x10b. We recorded "I Shouldn't Be Alive" 1/7 at 12pm, and when we go to play it, we get the message "Searching for authorized content..." and other than that just a black screen.

    If I immediately hit pause, the time indicator moves by itself about 3 minutes per second or so (roughly the same speed as a 4x FFWD).

    Once it gets to 1:00, it goes PAST 1:00 and continues until about 1:17 then the "Searching for authorized content..." poppup shows again. If I hit pause, it starts again, but at random starting points (e.g. 0:14).

    Weird one...it's unwatchable completely, but again this was recorded on 0x10b and exhibited the same behavior on 0x10b. So it's probably a hosed recording that 0x115 wouldn't magically be able to play...but still, something of note.

    Downloaded 115 earlier and already had a black screen and had to reset again. I didn't have a single black screen with the last update. I hope this is just a one time thing.

    Download of 0x115 went fine.
    Since then the 1) system has rebooted on its own, 2) it froze once,
    and various other and sundry nit problems.
    The HR20 is so obviously far from 'ready for prime time,' that there is
    no real need, by me, to second others' frustrations.
    I'll be patient until I can't anymore.

    This was posted before update, but still here with update.
    With native on & 480, 720 & 1080 resolutions set:
    changing to SD give correct light on from panel & in setup info&test.
    Changing to HD front panels shows wrong resolution, info&test same. Output to TV correct. Changing channel [from 1080 with 720 light on] to 720 [changes to 1080 light on]. TV does get correct resolution. If I change to a second channel with the same resolution, the front panel light will change to the correct one.
    SD seems to always be correct. HD needs two channels in a row [with same resolution] to show correctly [front panel]. If you tune from SD [always correct] to HD [with wrong light on] & then to the other HD resolution, you can toggle between the two HD channels and the front panel lights will change [always to the wrong resolution]. TV constantly receives correct resolution. Lights & setup info&test display incorrectly.
    This happens only with MPEG-4
    Minor, but weird.

    I told you about this last night. The OTA tuner sensitivity seems to be worse in this software release. I am getting eight less channels with this release than I did with the previous release. My Mits TV gets ALL of the OTA channels available in the Tampa and Fort Myers area. My HR20 now gets about half of those channels. This is the case even by resetting my OTA setup and re running the setup.

    Please DTV get this right. There is no reason a two year old HR10 should be getting better ATSC reception then the HR20 which is supposed to have the latest and greatest next generation tuners. This box is usless unless it can pull in those digital channels that DTV does not offer via sat. :nono:

    Downloaded and installed 115 without any problems last night but did not do an additional reset afterwards. This morning I was watching live local HD (Mpeg4) NBC station and after rewind, play for a few minutes, and then fast forward to get back to real time I got a black screen and then the unit rebooted. After reboot the unit behaved like the last release. During fast rewind the video freezes and you have no way of knowing where you are in the buffer until you hit the play button which returns control to he HR20.

    Menus are definitely a lot faster.

    Trick play (FF/RW/Slip)is faster, easier to watch and more accurate.

    No new problems introduced (so far) on a box that has been working VERY well for about 15 weeks.

    Still missing 3 channels (minor) ATSC:

    13-2 WHO-DT Weather Radar
    23-1 CW Network
    56-1 Minor Network

    Did a complete re-initialization of the ATSC setup. (before noting the still missing channels)

    Ugggh, really no to some worsening of my OTA situation here in Chicago. That was my main concern coming in, so that is what I checked the most. Don't get 2-1 here at all, and 32-1 is very touch and go despite solid reception on my TV's OTA tuner. Guide much faster, and thanks again Earl for the heads up on this update.

    Were you able to repeat it this morning? (After the restart, and possible the system was doing some other background processes)

    1) What where you doing in the system when it spontaneously rebooted
    2) What where you doing in the system when it "froze", and what made you think it was frozen.
    3) What are the "sundry" of nit problems.

    That is the purpose of this... to list the problems, with their details.

    Define "not getting"..

    -) Are they not showing up in the list of Edit Channels in the ATSC Setup?
    -) No guide information
    -) 771 Errors? (and other error)
    -) Can tune the channel, but no picture

    After downloading 115 I lost 2 ota stations last night. these are two stations not part of my primary or secondary markets, but they come in very well. After running antenna setup again the channels appear in my edit list, but don't show up in my favorite list. any ideas on how to fix this?? :)

    Where are you in Chicago... as I am 35 miles away from the towers, and can get WFLD-DT, perfectly... with an attic mounted antenna.

    WBBM-DT (Channel 2), that is different... and what for a thread about that tomorrow (to do some specific data collecting)

    No, I wasn't even able to repeat it immediately after it restarted.

    I they are not in your pre-defined favorite list?
    Or not in the list of channels you can add to your favorites?

    They don't automatically go into your favorites, you have to re-edit your favorite list, to add them in.

    1)while watching today show from "behind" (it is season passed) i ff x4 to go from 720am - 730am (real time was about 8am) hit replay to stop and it froze...by ffx2 i got recording to start again at 738am.
    2)rewind x1 the frame freezes but it actual does rewind... you guess where you are and hit stop accordingly,,,this bug is unchanged from 10b...(is this a known issue or soley mine?)

    otherwise guide faster, replay and 30sec slp smoother.

    Thanks for the quick reply. they do appear in the antenna menu (the edit channels list) but they are not in the list I can add to my favorites, Is there a way to force them out of the antenna edit channel list? :)
