|kenneth||I have noticed there are no PVR functions working on CH 829. recording gives error on playback. I hope this is isolated to this channel|

|dosborne||I've noticed that one too. To make the issue clearer, if you are in the guide, at a future time/day, and the hour or half hour rolls then your section of the guide jumps forward. If you were at the current day/time, I could understand, but this happens even if you are a couple of days into the guide. FYI - this happens on the 9200 as well.|

Even happens on their 3 default lists.

Troubleshooting step 1 is to do a reset of the receiver. Press and hold the power button on the front of the unit until it resets (about 10 seconds).
Try it again and let us know if the problem continues or not.

I developed a problem with my program guide after the latest software upgrade and have not seen anyone else post.
When I open list one and advance to the next day to check the listings and then switch to list two the guide starts me back the day before so I have to advance to the next day again. This happens whenever I switch between lists.
After several attempts to remedy the problem I got a tech guy at EV and he said that I was the only one to complain of the problem. He will check into the situation.
Soo, if I am not alone with this problem reply to this post please.

|spun14||GFI can be a decent idea but thats only going to help you in the case of upward spikes. Minor voltage loss' could cause issues as well which will not trip the GFI. If you're buying equip like power bars or surge protectors at the dollar store then you should expect faults. I'd suspect the freezing issues are more to do with the equipment or the occational drop in voltage you sometimes get when various higher end electronics such as A/C or your furnace kick on. A good UPS can easilly fix the voltage problems but i'd lay more on the reciever it self then anything else.|

Blaming a power bar for signal issues is an easy "out" for the CSRs. However, many customers do not use quality equipment or overload it and it can indeed cause issues on a fairly frequent basis and it doesn't hurt to try removing it to see if the issue goes away......
But I definitely agree that some protection should be put in place in a working environment. In addition to the isolated ground, I run a couple of UPSs.

The group function for PVR recordings is great. It really highlights how the 9242 is receiving new software development and the 9200 is being abandoned.

I had "freezing" issue on my 9242 as well... At first it was only when I used the HDMI cable, so I changed it to a COMPONENT cable. After a little more than a month "freezing" started again!
Called EV and they send me a refurbish unit to replace mine (which was a brand new 9242 that was only 11/2 old)
When I received the refurbish unit the "freezing issue" was gone, maybe due to new firmware, I woudn't know

I get the video freeze while audio continues bug as well.
Never used to happen before this firmware.

The 181 label introduced folders/groups as well as a new floating screen saver that includes helpful tips or direct links to recordings, locks, timers. It also not includes the ability to view JPEGs on a flash drive.
USB hard drive functionality hasn't been released yet. I'm sure once it is ready to be announced, you'll hear about it.

I too just had the video freeze while the audio continued, I let it run for about a minute then got up and held down the power button to reset.
I was watching (and recording the same) HD channel, and recording another HD channel on a schedule.
I was actually amazed that the scheduled recording continued after the reset!
This is the first issue I've had since I got it in April, there is lots of airflow around it in a nice cool basement, so I don't think mine is a heat issue. I hope it doesnt happen again.
