My DirecTV HD DVR has been working flawlessly since day 1 (I was an early adopter).
I have a number of shows scheduled to record and I watch them regularly.

Last night, I noticed 2 new behavior issues with the machine:
1. It was very sluggish in changing channels (like 10 seconds black screen or more)
2. When I tried to play one of the recorded shows, the screen woulc briefly show the recording's details at the top and then the screen would go blank. The circle of blue LEDs on the DVR would slowly blink on and off in a dim-in / dim-out fashion.

Any ideas/suggestions anyone?

Try a reset and if that doesn't work call them, you may need a replacement.
