THDVR issue.

The DVR reboots anytime non-DVR STBs access and play the recorded programs.  Has anyone else experienced this?  I have tech coming out tomorrow.  This just started.  I have had THDVR for over a month.

Re: THDVR issue.

This is the first time I have heard of that issue.  Hopefully you can reproduce that problem when the tech gets there.  The most annoying thing that I have had happen way too often is equipment works when the repair tech gets there.

Dog, I would watch anything that you really want to see before the tech gets there.  He/she will most likely want to do a hard reboot or swap your DVR and you will loose all of your recorded content.

The tech changed out the DVR unit.  It is working now.  They had never seen this issue before.

wouldn't the command for the dvr to reboot have to come from the RG, just guessing...

nah, could have been the dvr was having issue understanding the signal being sent and reboot itself to try to correct the glich and maybe get a software update through a recovery mode.

This has happened only once to me in the field

 

From the information I gathered from other Prem Techs was that after the THDVR update; the DVR went south
