    This may be related to the other problems people are seeing since the 6.3 upgrade. In the past few weeks we have been seeing on our R10 recorded shows the following problem: the program freezes for 2 seconds with no sound, goes black for 1 seconds with sound, then resumes with sometimes quick color shifts.

    The "interesting" part is we have noticed it ALWAYS happening when the program is at 13 minutes! (Plus other random? times.) This is happening on our E/W feed of the Tonight Show, Late Night with Conan, and one other that we forget the name of. We have not noticed this happening on the few programs we watch "live".

    So, is this a hard drive problem,, or the mysterious 6.3 problem or the even more mysterious new HD satellite feed problem?

    I get that black flash/freeze/interuption from time to time as well. I am not sure when it occurs. I'll have to check to see if it is on the 13s as you say.
