So after a reboot your recordings are still there?

Hdtvtechno - did you try a reboot to see if the others came back?

I missed this cycle due to major storms - had no signal last night and after an our of trying I gave up and went to bed. Today I played "dodge the tornado"then spent some time hooking my generator up to a close friends houe - power is out almost everywhere but my road.

Well, turns out one of my HR20's did receive 0x0245 through the storms Saturday night.

Monday it became stuck in "Acquiring guide data". The message would not go away on live programming, but did go away on recorded programming.

I left it for 24 hours - never went away.

Tuesday I rebooted and the message is gone.

OK, just had an issue with my receiver that I'm reporting in the CE thread as well as the widget thread.

Watching a recording of the Braves vs. Cubs from 6/11 on channel 206 - ESPN (MPEG2 HD) Hit the right button to test the widget bar and the screen went black, then the widget bar opened. Close the widget bar, screen stayed black. Audio continued. I hit info and play, both showed the info or timebar as usual. I toggled to the previous channel and video came back. Toggled back to the recording and the video played as normal.
