Were you recording on one and not the other one? If so, there's sometimes a difference between playing a stream being recorded and the live buffer.

The 20-100s are the worst of the HRs. Be happy you have one that works at all.

That’s odd. I have an H20 and an HR20 in the living room, and another HR20 in the adjacent kitchen and they are always synchronized. I used to have a combination of RCA and Sony UTV’s and no two were ever in sync!

I wonder if you had at some point during the game paused and then eventually caught-up with live TV? I know on ours, if I do this, it doesn’t completely return to live. It’s definitely not 25 seconds delyaed, but at least one or two seconds behind. If I change channels and come back (thus flushing the buffer), it goes back to being in sync with other “live” receivers.

i think maybe the diference is one is a 100 and the other a 700,there both on now and the 100 is 25-30 sec ahead

I have 3 HR20-700s and 4 HR20-100s and they are all in sync. I even have one of the 100s running off of a SWM8, while the others are on a WB616. There shouldn't be any difference at all in terms of timing and whether it's a 100 or 700. As a matter of fact, they should be in sync with non-DVRs, as well. (Our H20-100s, H20-600, and Hughes HBH are in sync with the DVRs)

As a poster mentioned above, pausing then catching up to "live" TV can result in being a few seconds behind when getting to the end of the buffer; however, that bug was resolved a few Software Versions ago. (Around April or May of this year). So that shouldn't be happening, either.

I know this may be a long shot, but the only reason (if the DVR is not broken) I can think of that may result in a football play happening seconds later on a different receiver is if you are watching the same game on two different channels. For example, you may have the game on D*'s feed on one channel, while the other receiver has it via OTA. Or, for MNF, if you have it on channels 73 and 206, respectively. That definitely will cause a delay. Although a 25 second lag is unusually long.
