How about rebooting the gateway (pull plug for 15 secs. and let it fully reboot) and and after that completes the dvr (pull plug for 15 secs.)? Also that is one of the older model dvr's. Those have some problem "keeping up" with the UI changes made through the years. You might want to consider replacing it with a newer model (you will lose all your recordings of course).
