A lot of the reports I've read about the HDMI issue seems to point to an improperly seated HDMI connector daughter card. I'd try reseating the connector board before doing anything else. I believe DTV had an exchange program set up if anyone reported problems with the HDMI connector so you might want to try contacting their tech support to see what they'll do for you.
I have the monthly service contract for all of my receivers and DTivos so if anything goes wrong they'll replace it for free. I figured it was cheap insurance considering what I paid for the HR10-250's. I've already had a S2 DTivo replaced under the contract when one of my DSR-704's decided to go bonkers on me.

Please don't PM me or any other members looking for personal assistance. You'll do better by posting (after you've exhausted the search feature, of course) and taking advantage of the collective expertise of the membership instead of a single individual that may or may not be able to help you. Thank you and enjoy your stay at DDB!
