After waiting say, 3 mins or so, hit the red reset button. Pulling the plug is a last resort (and hard on the electronics)ExUltimateTV said:My HR20 locked up last night. After cursing the unit, what should I do?
A) Unplug, wait, then plug it back in.
B) Hit the red reset button.
C) Something else? None of the front panel buttons had any effect.
BTW, this was my first freeze in a couple of weeks (2 firmware versions ago). Watched, finished, and deleted an MPEG-4 HD show, saw a live show in the preview window (HBO HD), hit "Exit" to make it full screen, saw that it had been buffered up and so tried rewinding. Result was freeze.
