Attempting to play a recorded program on my DVR. The TV went blank and the STB would not respond to any commands from the remote. The STB displayed "h5". Power off did not resolve it. I unplugged the STB and then I got the picture back and control of the STB. Does anyone know what "h5" means?

The same exact thing happened to me and only physically unplugging the STB cord from the wall worked; only I was attempting to record a program. I guess it's similar to when your computer crashes and needs to be "hard booted". I couldn't find anything about the "h5" error code, which I received as well. I'm guessing it's like the Windows "fatal error". Any links to the Motorola DVR error codes? I think it's a software and not a hardware problem.

Out of curiousity, is there any chance your DVR is in a cabinet? Or is it out in the open and well ventilated?
I've gotten a few of these "Hx" errors, but they didn't appear until I put my DVR in a media cabinet along with my Onkyo receiver and AppleTV device. I'm wondering if it has something to do with the unit overheating. But in my experience, the error only lasted less than a minute and was able to resolve itself without a hard reset.
