Question about Directv R10 TV Receivers and DVRs

Open Question

My non-HD DVR R10 will freeze or shut down and power back up

Suddenly today (12/14/08), my R10 is either freezing completely or is cutting off and powering back up, only to repeat the cycle after only a few minutes (5 minutes or so).

This is a non-HD DVR and has worked without fail for the past 3 years or so since receiving it (I've had it since Christmas of '05).

    the reciever freezes for a moment and then power-cycles (taking about 5 minutes), then between 5 minutes and 30 minutes later it does it again. this is a continuing cycle thruout the day. we cannot watch anything without missing pieces, and dont even get me started on the idea of tivo'ing dancing with the stars.

SOURCE: My Directv DVR receiver will not stay on it is blinking yellow??

Unplug it from the power for about 30 minutes and then try again. If it still doesn't work I would call DirecTV and discuss getting it replaced.

Hd channels are freezing up sound stays on just


Hey there, raeraekub! In order to assist you with this, I need to get a full understanding of the situation, so I'm going to ask you a few questions. First of all, is this issue still happening? If it is, try unplugging the receiver's power cord from the wall for 15 seconds then plugging it back in. If the problem continues, let me know what type of connection you have from the receiver to the TV. What type of TV do you have? With the DVR issue, is the freezing happening in the middle of watching a recording?

Dvr recording pauses occasionally (for about 30 seconds) and freezes (which requires a reset or unplug).


Hi! I will be more than glad to assist you in this concern. If your directtv hdtv receiver occasionaly pauses for 30 seconds and freeze and the only troublshooting steps that you do is to press the power button for 10secs or unplug the power-hard reset for 15secs. please do this steps
1. check if the software version of your receiver is updated, how to? got to the sysinfo of your receiver by pressing the sysinfo button on your remote or front panel of the hd receiver, write down on a piece of paper the version, then exit the sysinfo, run a check switch test, you need to access the menu of your receiver, once your done with the check switch and test.. turn off the power of your receiver by pressing the power button on the remote, make sure that there are no lights lit so that the satelite will automatically download the software if its outdated and if nothing happen it means that your software is updated. after all the steps that you did, by running the check switch and test.. still problem exist.. call the directtv tech support for the replacement of your hd dvr receiver, this is a dvr lost of function. I have experience that symptoms on my hd dvr receiver as well with one of the sat provider..

Hdtv picture freeze


I also have a Brand new Sony Bravia 52" LCD with Comcast Cable (motorola box).When switching between HD Channels sometimes the left side of the screen shows a smushed version of the new channel, and the right side is a frozen picture of the previous channel. I correct this by switching to a non HD channel and back. Cable or TV problem I wonder?

How do I know if my Directv HR22-100 HD receiver is dead?


one last thing you can do, if it doesnt work the dvr is dead. reset the dvr and wait for the hello screen and then the screen will go black. when it turns black, hold the down arrow (on the front of the dvr) and the record button for at least 5 secs. this will re-format the hard drive. if it doesnt work the dvr is dead
