Thanks for coming on the forum and don't get too upset if some flames appear.
No problem, and no worries about the flames. People spend a lot of money to get their home system set up and you want it to work properly.
Some of the issues I will be able to help on and some I won't. As I mentioned before, I work for Motorola on the STBs right now, but before this I worked for ATI/AMD in their DTV department working on HDTV decoder chips so I have a relatively decent background when it comes to this stuff.
First thing I wanted to know, and forgive me if you've already answered some of these questions already, I haven't had time to read through all the posts, is what TV do you have? Some of the artifacts you're seeing might be related to the TV and not the STB. Deciphering between the two can be a hassle sometimes, but it will be good for your knowledge.
Just got back from lunch and I am going to be busy today, so if I don't get you answers right away, please be patient as I do have to earn a paycheck
Also, I'm assuming you're connecting the STB to the TV with HDMI. Correct me if I'm wrong about this.
The tuning issue sounds like it could be the STB. That is the first one I'm going to look into. The DVR stuff sounds like an application functionality and I'm going to try and do the same thing you described and see if I can reproduce it. If I can, I will ask around and find out why this may be, if there's a fix or plan for a fix, or if there's a technical reason why the app functions the way you are seeing it.
Again, I won't be able to get back to you right away but I will.
