    I have two brand new DirecTV HD DVRs with the same problem. I got both in December and have already had this happen twice on one of them and once on the other. It's SOOOO frustrating to pay good money for something like that and then find out it's a piece of ****.

Delete any programs that are not needed on the dvr. restart the reciever. if the problem continues, its the tuner and hard drive not working together. receiver may need to be replaced.

Black screen


80% or more of the issues with your DVR can be resolved by unplugging the box for 90 seconds and plugging it back in. There are some features that will be avilable immediately, and others that will take time to download. IE: all of the quide. I can't stress this enough - reboot your DVR occasionally - just like your computer its hard drive might need this.

I have also seen the hard drive inside this box appear bad when it was actually a problem with one recording. In my case it was a recording on the wrong channel, one that did not broadcast anything in my market. I was unable to access any of my recorded programs and when I tried to play the one in question, the screen went black. I deleted the program and all was well.
