    My Dtivo is trying to record on the second tuner while it is only configured for one. s this a bug others have seen ? I searched this forum for one tuner problems. I noticed that the "down arrow" will occasionally switch to this 2nd tuner (gray screen) and sometimes it looks for secondary audio. Why would it do this ? I

    Are you sure it is set for one tuner, you may want to run through the setup again to check.

    I have an HDVR2 running 6.3 that decided it had 2 tuners again about 2 weeks ago. I was getting ready to unplug it and trade out for another HDVR2 (zippered, and running 6.2, whose 2nd tuner doesn't pixellate). At some point during the process, where I was unhooking sat cables from one to get data downloaded on the other, the 6.3 one froze up. When I rebooted it, I think it decided it should have 2 tuners again. I didn't realize this for a day or so.

    The 6.3 receiver is still running, since we had a few things we wanted to watch that were still on it. I've noticed it seems to freeze up more often than when it was plugged in (sat lines and phone). My wild unfounded guess is that attempts to call-in are somehow leading to the freezing.
