Alas, I have done all of these things. I'm done with it. My HR 20-100 is the MAIN DVR in my house, and my wife wants to throw the remote at the TV she is so frustrated with this. The only way (other than Quick-Tune) to change channels is to press GUIDE, wait for 15 seconds or so, and tune to the station you want by scrolling up/down to it, and pressing SELECT. Absurd!! The DVR barely processes number key entries, and forget doing any kind of a Smart Search...I have to cancel and left-arrow out. I'm done booting this thing over and over. This was a fine, stable, and slightly slow DVR until DirecTV started fiddling with the UI. I've been the best customer DTV has ever had, never called or complained about anything, paid my bill on time for over 17 years, and I'm entitled to satisfaction of this issue.jimmie57 said:If you have not done these things before.
Go into Setup,
HDTV and uncheck all but the 1080i resolution,
HDTV, Video and set Native to OFF
Display and set Scrolling to OFF.
Now press the red button to reset the receiver.
You might want to try this also.
Go to channel 1.
Once the page is operating including audio,
use the remote and press Red, Red, Blue, Blue, Yellow, Green in exactly that
This must be done quickly. Otherwise the yellow press will bring up a quick
options menu. That will display a message about the NVRAM being cleared in
the lower left.
DO YOU HEAR ME, DTV!? I'M MAD AS HELL AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE!! I WANT A DVR THAT WORKS! THIS HR 20-100 HAS NOT FUNCTIONED SINCE THE "UPGRADE" TO THE UI. TAKE THE UPGRADE BACK, OR TAKE THIS DVR BACK!!
Thanks, DBS Talkers, for the opportunity to rant. My DVR is still slower than dirt, but at least I feel better...
