Advertisements I've got an HR10-250 that over the last week has started randomly pausing during playback of live TV and recorded programs. When this happens the unit will not respond to the remote control (even though the LED on the front turns amber as I press buttons). After about 30 sec - 1 min of this the unit will reboot. Now a new issue has crept up, over the last few days the unit has begun totally locking up, I will turn the TV on to find a black screen and nothing will wake the unit up other than cycling the power to the unit. However, I'm not 100% sure it was locked up, when I checked the system information it showed the unit made a daily call this morning at 3am, yet according to my to do list recordings were missed because the 'power was off'. When I checked the unit it had the black screen and would not 'wake up'. I pulled the hard drive and ran both Western Digital's 'Short Test' and 'Extended Test' and neither detected any errors on the hard drive. Any suggestions? The unit is running 6.3d and has some of the same To Do list schedules dating back to the 3.x software. Do I need to wipe/initialize the unit? I'm stumped, I hope the board/PS isn't dying.
