Advertisements One of my HR10-250's keeps locking up (unresponsive remote, black screen lockup, rebooting) after some investigation I have pinpointed the cause and developed a work around until D* or T* can fix the software. I thought it may be helpful to share this workaround. Symptoms - For me the locking up and reboots only happen when the the HR10-250 is tuned to a particular station, Cleveland OTA 5-1 WEWS-DT ABC. When my HR10-250 is tuned to this channel there is stuttering and breakups. Also, the HR10-250 is less responsive or completely unresponsive to the remote control. It is messing up the system so bad that when the HR10-250 is tuned to this station the menu is also unresponsive to the remote control. Sometimes the HR10-250 is so unresponsive that I need to reboot it to regain control of the system. This issue was difficult to isolate because sometimes this station would be tuned in on the background tuner and I wasn't able to correlate the issue to the 5-1 station. It was easier for me isolate this problem because I have 2 HR10-250's and Cleveland has 4 OTA HD stations that I do most of my recording off of. So one of my HR10-250s is set up two record 2 of the stations and the other HR-10-250's is setup to record the other 2. It was only the HR10-250 set to record the ABC channel that was locking up. Solution - Unfortunately, the only way I have found to take make my HR10-250 more stable is to remove the Cleveland ABC WEWS 5-1 station out of the 'Channels List' menu, replace it with the low definition channel 5, and record off of that station. Extreme Lockups - At least one time the lockups were so bad that even after I rebooted the HR10-250, trying to regain control, it would still lockup to the point that I couldn't control it. I went 3 days thinking my HR10-250 was dead. I found in this instance I needed to unplug the antenna lead from the back of the HR10-250 then reboot. Control of my HR10-250 was restored and I could go to live TV and change both tuners off of OTA 5-1. At this point I would also recommend going into the Menu and removing OTA 5-1 out of the 'Channels List', then reboot the HR10-250. Misc Info - I went over to a friends house that also has 2 HR10-250's and records Cleveland locals via OTA. He is experiencing the same issue with 5-1 - so it isn't an issue with my install. Also, I have an HR20-700 and it can record 5-1 OTA just fine so it is a problem with 6.3c.
