Advertisements I acquired a pre-owned HR10-250. Initially, I connected it to antenna for OTA and to the dish to receive programming guide info, but I left the original card in the unit. The unit worked fine for OTA for a couple months, but of course there was no Direct programming. Very recently the unit started "sticking" on the HD OTA channels. "Sticking" = freezing for about one second alternating with 10-20 seconds of proper play/viewing before freezing and releasing, etc. About the same time the unit would sponateously reboot almost every day. I ordered a new card from Direct and activated the receiver. The unit plays/views the SD Direct channels without "sticking". However, not only does HD OTA still "stick", but the few HD Direct channels also exhibit this exact "sticking" behavior. If the unit's hard drive is in imminent failure and the drive is the culprit, wouldn't the "sticking" occur for all channels, including SD ? Can anyone shed light on this problem ?
