    Someone suggested the fix is to hit EXIT before the red button logo loads... No problems so far on my H24-100.

    I tried a Reset, took about 5 or so minutes then everything came back on fine then my picture froze again and had to do another reset. It locked up again then i had to do yet ANOTHER reset and now i am having to watch Local Channels to see a game.

    The problem with freezing is on the H21 receiver only --I currently watching on 2 (hr22) & H20 Whiech are fine the H21 running 04xc5 locks up and only a red button reset can restore service.

    I'm afraid to switch to NFL Sunday Ticket Channels because it takes SO Long for a receiver reset. WHAT IN THE HELL IS GOING ON DIRECTV?????

    Do you have another receiver to try? I am having no issues. Also I am not sure but the free preview may cover the To Go Pack to Im not sure. Might check that out.

    H23-600 locks up after a few minutes of watching any ST channel. RBR was only way to get channels back.

    HR24-100 working fine.

    I have another receiver but i cannot check it now, my other family members (who don't care for football) are watching and in the middle of a movie currently and I refuse to ruin their afternoon incase the receiver they are watching has to be reset and it take aroun 5 or 10 minutes for it to reset where it works properly again. This Is Insane Does anyone know what is going on?

    Same H21 issue here, experiencing full-on lockups on RedZone, only red button reset returns control.

    UPDATE: As suggested above, pressing "Exit" as soon as the picture loads resolved the problem.

    Tried the "hitting Exit button many times" as soon as a 700 NFL channel is selected. Did not freeze on ch 702.

    then tune to any zone channel 703 or below. Keep hitting the exit button (untill it beeps at you)
