This is so strange! I've done it two ways, frequently and have never had a freeze:g4jedi said:UPDATE:
I talked to my wife about this and she gave me the details. She's the primary user of this HR20. Anyway, she said that she didn't let it stay on the "delete now" screen for more than a second. However, she said that the times that it has locked up like this was on a non-padded recording. When it reaches the end of the show and it prompts you to delete or not, if you hit yes, then it would freeze the HR20. Of course, it doesn't every time. However... we USUALLY record padded shows and delete them by hitting info, more info and choosing delete. That might be why it has only happened to us about three times. So for now, as a work around, when it asks to delete, we'll say "no" and delete it later...

1. At end of show, delete from the presented options
2. Hit stop at the end of the show, cursor to show, double-dash delete
It's very confusing seeing these kinds of problems for others and never seeing them here. (9 weeks and counting)
