Channel 2 is probably the weakest one out there. The only person I know who gets it is my brother-in-law and he lives by Comisky there. He could probably run a wire directly to the tower.
To bad it is run of the Hancock... :)

There is something up with WBBM-DT in Chicago.
DirecTV is actively looking into it.

ignorant q #2

how do you navigate to that screen? ive always recorded by hitting R on the guide.....

thanks for your patience
Couple of ways to get there.

When in the guide, if the program is NOT currently playing.
Highlight the show, hit select.... That will bring you to the detail screen for the show.

From a search, highlight the episode and hit select... that will bring you to the info screen.

Once there, you navigate with the arrows, to highlight the record option you want... Then hit select.

Then just populate the screen with your "choices", and select it to record

We should soon start to see an increase of people "checking off" Automatic as the method they received 0x10b

Was visited by Santa and got the b version. OTA is great. One big issue, trying to rewind or freeze live tv results on a permanat freeze that is only unfrozen by changing the channel. does not seen to be specific to any particular channel or type of channel(ota,mpg4, etc). this is very common, probably 9 out of 10 times.
(My wife and kids are mad at me ....again)
When you get a chance.

Totall unplug the unit... Let it sit for about 5 minutes.
And restart... Instead of just flipping to unlock it.

Also, does it do this for recorded content?
What about "live" content that is being recorded.

If we already have 0x10b, will it still update our box when/if 0x10b goes National. Thus messing up our Guide for another 24hrs.?
It should not re-download 0x10b if you already have it.

Thanks for the info! You said to turn the unit off when not using it ... I recall that I received the 0xfa upgrade but don't beleive the unit was off at all. Anyway, I wonder why it has to be shut down to receive upgrades?
It does not have to be "shut off", to get the update.

Technically the only way to "shut-off" the DVR, is to unplug it.
Putting it in Standby, is probably what you are referring to.

And all that does different is tell the HR20 that you are not using it.

I recorded a show via OTA (7-1) and went to view it and received the "Delete Now" prompt with nothing else on the screen and the program not recorded. I have 0x10b and checked the signal strength on the OTA channel in question and it was at 100% about a 1/2 hour later. And I was able to view it "live" soon after the failed recording. First ever failed recording for me. Sounds like others are also seeing this in 10b.

The bug is not NEW to 0x10b

They are aware of the issue.

Earl,

Can I presume that people with 0x10B can now call CSRs?

Merry Christmas,
Tom
........ yes, I would guess so
But if you got it via a FORCED update... please try us here first in the forums.

Now that it is being released could I just force the update and get the new software or do I have to wait? I am in Ohio. Thanks, lbostons
You still have to wait.
Unless you happen to catch it when it is has been authorized for your box, but hasn't actually pushed to your box yet. (relatively small window)

Have they fixed the network cable lockup isssue with 0x10b? The HR20 hangs on reset when the network cable is plugged in. When I remove the cable and reset it's fine. This started with the Santa download of 0x10b, I had to uplug the network cable to finish the install. Also tried another cable, same problem.
The 0x10b that is being rolled out, is the exact same 0x10b that you got last week. So if the problem existed with your setup before that, it will exist after that.

Have you tried with the network connection plugged in...
But NO computer turned (aka, the HR20 has nothing to talk to on the network?)

Granted the HR20 should be able to handle any issues with talking to the Media Servers, but at this point... it is so new, and just about EVERYONE's installation is different (with regards to networks).....

I mentioned it in your other thread;

This is not "new" to 0x10b (excet for the OTA piece).

DirecTV is aware of the issue.

Right now, all I could recommend is a RBR... or unplug the unit for about 5 minutes, and let it restart from a shutdown state.

Earl,

Are we not keeping track of issues at the begining of the thread anymore?
"Yes"... but... :(
I have slacked on it a bit...

However, even without those links, DirecTV does follow each post in this thread.

The switch has been flipped on 0x10b

It is officially the current National Release.
By tomorrow morning, you all should have 0x10b on your HR20's.

#1) All the user guides say this... It is "an incorrect" statement in the manual.
#2) You can direct connect it to a DSL modem (since most of them are routers any way now adays), but right now... the only features enabled are home networking options.... so if you don't have your PC also connected to that same "router"/DSl modem... there really is no benefit right now.
#3) Yes and no... there are people that report better, worse, same, ect... each market/area is different
#4) Abuse of the direct phone numbers, has caused them all to be changed. You can now only call the main number, and go through the "tiers" unless one of those tiers gives you an expiring pin number, to directly dial another department.

Just because I received the 10b update @ 4:45am... is it too soon to start whining for dual live buffers? How about Ethernet connectivity?

Hey, don't yell at me ... it's a "what have you done for me lately" world ... I just live in it. :D

Good job, D*.
0x10b already has Ethernet connectivity...

And you are about a week late on the whining for DLB
