Was just watching TV at 7:15 PST on a Friday night when all of a sudden the screen goes blank and the PVR (3510) starts updating. Why would this be scheduled for a prime viewing time? Normally this happens in the middle of the night.
@budsgirl That's definitely a bit odd, typically with updates to your PVR, they can be downloaded at any time, then the box should apply them during a period of inactivity. Apologies for the inconvenience!
Occasionally, my "antique" (first-generation PVR) does the same thing -- TV screen freezes, then goes blank. Then, the PVR reboots itself, and returns to normal operation. If it continues to annoy me, I may replace it -- it's far too old to ask Shaw for "warranty" replacement.
