Default PVR Decided to Freeze on the Hour, Every Hour!?

Is it just my decoder or is the Pace 4T freezing everytime the clock strikes any O'Clock? When channel surfing and the clock hits x:00 it freezes for a good century and the only way to come out of the freeze is to either press the standby button on the remote though this doesnt always work and a full reset will have to be conducted of course interuppting the current recordings in progress as it seems with this new software we're not allowed to have perfect recordings anymore.

Best to just leave the decoder alone and wait for a couple of minutes as, in my experience, the decoder after a few minutes eventually wakes up and starts operating normally again. Suppose it depends on how long you willing to wait for it to come alive.

Except if you want to watch something that starts at that very moment - like the beginning of the News etc...

Default duplicate

I believe it is the same problem as http://forum.dstv.com/showthread.php?t=15317. We noticed this weekend that the remote stops responding every half hour, regardless of what you do. Makes it very annoying if you were fast forwarding while watching a recorded program, since it just keeps on fast forwarding.
Power and volume buttons still work.

This is happening on my single view (1131) decoder as well. Very similar to the details noted above.
