Long Delay when changing channels using Direct TV PVR

There is an annoying excessive delay when trying to change channels.  I am using the revue with a direct TV HD PVR.  This delay is up to 3-4 seconds.  Sometimes the command doesn't even seem to register. I am wondering if this is a known problem and if something is being done to address it.

 

Thanks,

Re: Long Delay when changing channels using Direct TV PVR

This is something that I am just noticing within the last week with DirecTV.  I have the revue between the HR24-500 and a Sharp TV.

 

I haven't checked to see if this is happening with my DirecTV Remote, but I'm guessing it will, since DirecTV has these issues sometimes, however, it usually follows a software upgrade to the STB.  There hasn't been one on my HR24-500 since 11/16/2010.

 

My usual action is to reboot my STB which I'll do today, since this is something that just cropped up and nothing in my configuration has changed.

Hello Zorlan

 

I have that problem also with excessive channel changing delay. I am using a Harmony One remote, the channel changes but it takes 1-3 seconds like your issue. Have you had any powering on delays that is another issue I am having the Direct TV HR24-500.

This issue went away for me, I use the standard Revue keyboard remote, and I have an HR24-500 HD DVR.  I would try to reset your DTV box, also make sure you have good line of site for the IR blaster.
