I'm thinking of going back to see if it fixes my shows which ran fine prior to the upgrade. This is my play DVR so no harm, no foul. Just wondering if it's worthwhile or if what is done is done (recording-wise).

So you have recordings that are not watchable under 115 that were watchable under 10b?

I'd probably never see that as I pretty much delete everything right after watching it, but I'm still thinking of going back. My gut feeling after reading all the posts over the last two days is that there are more issues and some more serious issues (the random resets) with 115 that this release will probably not go national.

I'm not having any random resets (or having to reset at all), but I have noticed an apparent bug twice in the last day:

Near the end of two different shows that I recorded OTA, I got several pixellated breakups, with corresponding missing audio. Both were in the last 3 to 5 mins of the shows, and both were watched by using multiple slips to go through commercials. The break ups were not associated with coming out of a slip...those all went normally. They happened while watching (and doing nothing else) the end of the show itself, not a commercial.

Important Note: these showed up LIVE while I was watching (recording), and are on the recordings as well. They also showed up on channels that I NEVER have had a breakup before. I'm willing to be that my Sammy HDTV tuner would not have seen any such breakup, but I can't prove it, because I was watching the HR20 at the time. I laso observed this on one SD show via satellite (USA Network)

I have never seen this behavior before, and I've seen it 3 times since the update. I think there is something wrong with 0x115. This one shouldn't go national IF what I saw is common to others.

I'm still dangling on the fence --

36 hours without a reboot and counting. My previous record with 0x10b was 4 days. We'll see how it goes tonight. Last night I watched live TV, watched a show as I was recording it, watched a show I had recorded the night before. All were MPEG-4 HD locals, and I was not bashful in using trickplay. No freezes or reboots last night.

I have observed that the HR20 is more likely to have problems within 24 hours of a reboot. Probably because the processor load is heavier. I'm hoping that things continue going well.

I went back to 0x10B due to reboots while FF thru a recording. The "glitch" on the recorded program that caused the reboot was still there AT THE SAME PLACE when I went back to 0x10B. Watching the same program in 0X10B caused a reboot... using the jump 30sec instead of FF got me past the glitch without a reboot.

I have only had one problem with the new version and that was a one time freeze up when selecting a program from the My Play List.

Picture/audio dropouts have disappeared from the previous version, so I consider that an improvement... and I have not experienced the spontaneous rebooting.

I am considering it. I am getting jigsaw audio on a D* supplied local HD station now.
I've heard this multiple times as well .. jigsaw is a good term, another good term is the Woody Woodpecker effect. I don't recall ever hearing this prior to 0x115.
