I fixed it by reprograming the remote. This is how! Point the remote away from the DVR and press and hold the TV power button and the Directv button on the remote at the same time until the red light at the end of the remote comes on and stays on when you release the buttons. Then press the thumbs down button on the remote (3) three times and press enter on the remote. This corrected my problem which set the remote as a new remote. You will have to reporgam your TV code into the remote to operate the volume on your TV .
It's most likely your hard drive. If it happens at the same point in the recording, or if you can delete a program and then record something else and it does it again, it is hitting a bad spot on the hard drive. Your best option is to replace the hard drive and you should be good to go.
it is multi sat multi sat compatable!My opinion is buy a powerd multi switch you can getem at radio shack or from a sat dealer that will clear p your prolem i belive also check all your rg6 coax ends u may have a a bad splice or a fraid shiel wich will make your reciever do the same thing but hope you can fix it
You can use SATELLITE and CABLE at the same time which involves DIPLEXING.but if you do not have satellite service then ,NO.You cannot use the TIVO functions with cable.However you can have a stand-alone Tivo that is specially made for either cable or satellite.Try reading up on the Standalone Tivo's perhaps the have a Tivo 2 stand-alone now.If your really lucky there might be a hack for the mod you are wanting.Try http://www.dvrupgrade.com/dvr/stores/1/ you might get lucky.
Video delays, running slow, and pixel glitches are indicators of Hard Disk Drive read and write errors. The shows you record are stored on a computer Hard Disk Drive within the DVR. If you have the original 40GB (35 hour) Western Digital Drive and it has never been replaced, it is a sure sign it is beginning to fail. You can either send it out and have it replaced or if you are electrically and mechanically inclined and want to try it yourself or have a computer genius living next door, the drive replacement is a simple process. You will need to obtain a pre loaded, pre initialized hard disk drive replacement for this Hughes DVR. You can purchase them online at www.weaknees.com. The smallest replacment is a 70 hour drive (80GB)They sell high quality pre configured Maxtor drives especially designed as replacements for DVR Drives. There are step by step instructions included with the drive. Any qualified electronics guru or computer tech should be able to replace the old drive with the new preconfiged drive. It is about a 30 minute job. Once installed and powered up the Receiver/DVR will act like it is a brand new receiver. You will have to call Directv to reauthorize your receiver again. If they ask, you can explain that you had a technician replace a faulty hard drive on your owned receiver and you need to reauthorize it. You will discover this when you power up with the new drive. The new drive should fix the delay problem. You will also need to set up your remote for your TV through the Remote setup menu again unless you remember the code (I can't). When you access the remote setup, the instructions will be displayed on the screen. Just scroll down to your brand of TV and input the different codes one at a time until you find one that works.
