Ive had this happen a few times this week, plus twice today. Mostly while Im watching local Ch 7 wabc news (Mpeg-4), but it just happened a little while ago, I was watching The King of Queens (CBS Mpeg-4)pappasbike said:Twice now tonight I've had the video and audio freeze or pause with no reason. Each instance was on a different local HD channel. There was no indication other than the stopped image on screen to indicate it was paused. The first time I just changed channels and then changed back and everything was ok. The second time I tried hitting a few buttons-pause,ff,play, and actually got it started back up with the green progress bar showing how far behind live it was. I eventually had to change the channel anyway because after ffing to go live video and audio were out of sync. The second time this occurred was actually after I had done a reset because it happened the first time. As far as I can remember this is the first time I've seen this behavior, or at least it never happened twice in one evening.
If it occurs again I'll try unplugging it and then powering it back up. I did a search on random pauses and didn't get anything, has anyone else experienced this?
In all cases the Video and sound just freezes, Changing channels is only way to unfreeze it.
