For the second day in a row I've had to reboot my HR20 because I turn it on and I see nothing but a black screen. The channel banner works, I can change channels and see the channel banner reflect what is supposed to be showing on that channel, but no image.

The guide also works and I can select channels that way, but once I tune into them, nothing but black.

Believe it or not, the only channels that come in are the local HD channels (via MPEG4). The MPEG2 HD channels and all other SD channels don't come in....just the banner.

There is no error of "searching for signal" or any other error...just no picture.

This problem never happened before 10b, and I've had this receiver for several MONTHS. It has now done it two days in a row.

Yeah, I know that an RBR fixes it, but rebooting this damn thing takes several minutes. When I turn on the TV I want to watch it, not have to wait several minutes in order to watch it.

If the rebooting of this box was more reasonable (1-2 minutes) I wouldn't mind having to reboot it every now and then.

The interesting thing is that I have two boxes and this problem is only happening on one of them....how can two identical boxes with the identical software behave differently?
