Thanks for reaching out! We'd be happy to help you stop this random pausing and freezing.
Was it working properly before? We see that you've already tried resetting it to no avail, so we'd recommend trying a factory reset, and then refreshing your service by following the steps in our article on Resetting your DIRECTV Receiver.
Let us know if this helps!
