Last week I started having the problem of my DVR freezing up while it was recording. It seems as so as it begins to record it freezes up and nothing records. On the LIST the show appears like it was recorded but when I press play only a black screen appears. Also sometimes the guide goes to a black screen when I select a show I want to watch. None of my series links are being recorded. I keep resetting it when it freezes but it just does it again. Two days ago I reset ed it and the blue power light would not turn off so it wouldn't reset. I finally unplugged the power cord then the reset continued. Also when these freezes occur my guide is blank beyond the next 6 hours and the to do list does not list my series by their titles but instead as To Be Announced with the record time and channel and yet it never records. Someone please help me I am getting frustrated.
