Update on squeal between commercials

I recently got one of the motorola DVRs with the 500 gb drive

This morning I realized that I havent heard the usual annoyying between commercial squeal in a few days - its tough to prove a negative so Its NOT possible to PROVE that the issue doesnt occur - but it sure SEEMS that the Motorola DVR isnt impacted by the squeal ...

Youre talking about that beep when hooked up via optical to a Sony reciever?

Been hoping for them to fix that with IMG upgrades and they havent, even though they know about it.

I'll have to see if it's gone. One can only hope. It's SO annoying!

LOL, evidence...

Still going on for me too; Dog is used to it now and does not run away anymore, so we just endure it.

now that I have the new DVR with the bigger drive and I know that it used to happen on TLC - im tempted to record a whole day of TLC just to see if the squeal is gone

Ive watched a bunch of TLC and other shows with local to national commercial transitions - I havent heard the dreaded squeal in a long time

That DOESNT mean its gone - Its just possible that it doesnt impact the 7232

If someone can confirm for me the shows that always do it Ill record them and see

I heard the squeal loud and clear last night repeatedly on ESPN Monday Night Football!

I think somehow they may have fixed this. I havent heard it in a couple weeks, where I used to hear it many times a day. Maybe they changed the flags they send out.

You might be right. I haven't noticed it in awhile either. About time!

It's still there, it just seems to be getting less frequent. I still occassionally hear it and my receiver is turned off. Believe it or not I can hear mine ONLY when NOT using the receiver.
