    HR20 drive going

    There's a simple solution to that--turn up the volume on your A/V receiver.

    HR20 drive going

    More watts being used? The external drive doesn't add to your wattage usage--it runs on such little power; and in terms of additional space, one of my drives rests on top of the HR20.

    HR20 drive going

    Why not save yourself the trouble and just connect an eSata external drive? I've got a 2TB drive connected to my HR20-700 (and a 2TB drive connected to my HR24), and it has been humming along just fine. Moreover, it's much easier and provides me a LOT of additional storage.

    MRV as it's presently structured refers to watching a recorded show in a room other than where it was originally recorded. Consequently, one would need another DVR with which to watch the original room's recording, because nonDVRs do not have the play/pause feature. What you are alluding to...

    It's not a question of what I think; it is what it is.

    It is, indeed, exclusive to the other site. That doesn't mean members from this site or others cannot participate. It began on the other site and is managed by DirecTV internal employees who are in constant and direct contact with a couple moderators on that site.

    More information The Cutting Edge program is different from most test programs. Unlike a true private beta, everyone is invited to participate. Unlike a true public beta, all testers are expected to keep a low profile. Unlike most forums, the Cutting Edge forum discourages negativity and...

    Dude, This upgrade is NOT for general customers. What you refer to is called "Cutting Edge" or "CE" software downloads. They're intended for those people to TEST new features, menu changes, adjustments, etc. They are NOT designed for newbies, people wanting new features, etc. Furthermore...

    HR2x / R22 CE Release 12/18

    That could be your reason. Scores of users are having problems, as indicated on the other forum.

    Oh, it's definitely not "a few." A look at the other forum reveals just how widespread this problem is, & how it's not due to one's "setup," either.

    HR2x / R22 CE Release 12/18

    No one knows. There's no rhyme or reaaon to the many problems this CE has caused. Of all my units, it is now only the HR20-700s that are locking up.

    HR2x / R22 CE Release 12/18

    Sounds like yet another problem with this CE, which has turned out to be one of the most problematic ones in months.

    HR2x / R22 CE Release 12/18

    Sorry to disappoint you, but it has pretty much been confirmed that DirecTV will, indeed, charge for this once it becomes available for everyone.

    HR2x / R22 CE Release 12/18

    In fairness, there are a few folks here and there who have not experienced this problem. Why this is the case is not known, but for most folks, there seem to be major issues. BTW, don't expect a fix in tonight's CE, either. Suggestion: re-download tonight, then don't touch your boxes for at...

    Consider yourself one of the lucky ones. No one can figure out why so many are affected but a handful are not. Maybe if those of us who are affected are lucky, this will clear up beyond the required 12-hour window.

    Yeah, I'd consider yourself lucky. My father and several buddies have all experienced this problem. It has happened to my HR700-100, HR21-100, & HR22-100s. I've got more than one model of each of these on my account, & every one of them froze as soon as I hit the "list" button.

    You are among the lucky few then, because this CE has, indeed, caused almost all users' boxes to become unresponsive once someone (a) has opted in MRV and (b) pressed the "list" button on their remote. We've had to RBR the units, then opt out of MRV to undo the damage. Until this latest CE...

    You might want to wait then. See my post in the other thread about the major problem this CE has caused. Almost anyone attempting to opt in for MRV will have their box become totally unresponsive. In short, it is recommended that this download NOT be done until a fix comes out for it. That could...
