Been back with DirecTV about two months now and using THR22-100 (tried their Genie and could not deal with their interface). The THR22 works as expected and happy except for 1 thing
It goes into "Downloading from Satellite" display with progress bar and % at random times, often when I want to watch TV (otherwise, the only way I know it did this process is that I find both tuners are on the same channel). Caption says to use TiVo
button to go to TiVo Central
. And that's about all you can do until it finishes the download.
Also, the Program Guide
is often screwy after the download completes - sometimes for hours, sometimes for a few minutes.
The worst part: It will STOP A CURRENT RECORDING
to perform this download. A few weeks ago, all
the previously scheduled evening's recordings failed because (per the Recording History
) "program no longer in Guide" since the database was (I am guessing) being rebuilt.
Is this normal for a THR22-100?
If so, then guess I just have to live with it. If not, is there a way to fix? Have not called DirecTV as will likely take a major effort to find someone there that even knows what a THR22 is, much less anyone with repair or behavior quirks understanding.
