Did this happen right after an update (next morning)? It can take about 24 hours before the guide redownloads entirely if it is lost.

Have you tried rebooting the box? When you say hang is it just a delay or is it frozen completely?

Through the testing of this software, I didn't see any reports quite like yours above.

I have the R22-100

I lots of people in my are not getting there SD Local Channels on the R22-100's anymore.
"It only happening to people with the R22-100 and a Slimline dish and locals from HD Satellite 99 and the new 0x255 software, according to DirecTV."

This is very odd, and really stinks. So I have no locals on my R22.

If you get your locals from 99, are you one of the brand new MPEG4 SD markets?

They just started rolling those out, so I wouldn't be entirely suprised if they are working on a few bugs.

Do you get SD locals on other receivers? If that is the case, it is probably not off 99 and may be a software issue.
