The DVR I got from comcast is being a major pain. Not only do I have to deal with the 5:20am and 5:40pm freezing bug. I found that, that bug is very common on all comcast DVR’s. But now it is freezing every 30 minutes today. They have replaced it once already. If it was not for the fact that I read about some one having their replaced 10 times and still had the 5:20am and 5:40pm bug, I would call to see if I could get mine replaced, but since it looks like it is a software bug, I guess I will have to just bear with it. I have noticed that they just upgraded the software, so I tested to see if they still have that bug, I did this by disabling the timer I got for the DVR. The time I have is set to turn off the power at 4am and 4pm and to turn the power back on at 5am and 5pm. And when I disabled it, I found that it was still freezing at 5:20am and 5:40pm, but now I have it freezing more often now that I noticed the software upgrade. I wish they would use software from a better known company that has been in existences for longer, such as TiVo. I am about ready to return it, and cut the digital cable and just go back to the basic cable.
