Once it goes to the black screen, try pushing the format button on the front of the unit until you get a picture.

Off-air antenna volume issues

Make sure you have the correct audio settings set on the HR10. Go to messages and setup, settings, audio and play with the different settings and see if you can't get any audio to come on.

If you are able to get a dolby 5.1 audio signal through your receiver on another hd channel, then you should be getting and audio signal on your locals.

If you aren't able to get any dd 5.1 audio on hd channels, then I'd suggest (if you can) bypass the receiver and go directly to your tv (if it has speakers).

I found unplugging it helped.  Problem with that is that sometimes it deletes newly recorded shows.

Programming the directv remote to program a sony audio receiver

Go through the process of setting up the remote again instead of trying the volume first use the power off button. In my experience, Sony receivers can be picky and power cycling "will" insure the code set, then try the volume.
