DirecTV DVR freezes pictures with no sound

The picutre freezes with no sound and if you leave it alone it seems to comes in five minutes or so most of the time. If you channel up or down it sometimes works or sometimes gives you a blank screen.

Direct Tech on the phone is useless, worse than useless. We stayed on the phone with several Reps reading the scripts over and over. Now they will schedule a Tech to come to our home, two weeks from now! Some service, where the number to the Cable Guy?

    DVR freezes, the only thing that clears it up is a receiver reset. Sometimes it happens 5 times within an hour. It seems to help to turn off the receiver when not watching TV.

Monitor your signal strength. watch and see if it falls under 60% at any time. It should always be in the high 80% to mid 90%. If it does drop there could be something interfering witht the dish.

Upgraded to Hd and tv started messing up. Double images for first 10 minutes and sometimes tv picture goes off and lines up and down.


Your HDTV is capable of up to 1080P resolution. SDTV (standard def) signals are 480i; EDTV (enhanced def) is 480P; HDTV are 720P, (there is no 720i) 1080i and 1080P. Generally, those modes ending in "P" look better than those ending in "i". 1080i is the highest possible for broadcast TV, but BluRay disks and Directv have 1080P display capabilities.

The double picture you're describing sounds like the TV is set to display only standard or enhanced def signals while the Dish Network box is supplying it with HD signals. You should locate the control for the TV's resolution and make sure it is set to "1080P" and then set the output of your Dish Network set top box to the highest output it offers. Do the same for your BluRay player and any other devices, too.

Once set correctly, you should have a great picture once again. I hope this helps & good luck!

My dvr says it's at 43% capacity regardless of new recordings, or anything deleted


Probably just a glitch, have you unplugged the receiver for five minutes and then plugged it back in? That will usually initiate software downloads that can help resolve issues. If this doesn't work, call DirecTV. They can troubleshoot over the phone for free.

Unplug the DVR for about 20 minutes and then plug it back in. If that doesn't work its probably time to contact DTV for a replacement.

JVC HDTV picture freezes


Try playing some DVD's for a number of hours to see if the fault is the DVR, or actualy the TV set. There is very little in these TV sets that can cause a picture freeze and still have sound!
