DVR strange behavior - DirecTV DVR

For DVR strange behavior, relating to DirecTV DVRs and receivers. I have a Samsung DVR and have disabled all the "auto" functions associated with recording. I seldom record. However, at 3am every morning, the DVR switches channels and half an hour later goes back to the original channel. Then, 15 minutes later is does a 2-3 min sample over about 4 channels...the same ones...and then goes back to the one I have it set on.

It has taken on a life of its own and I cannot shut these auto functions down despite resetting things several times. I am tired of this...anyone know if this is a programming problem or defective unit problem...and how to fix it or do I need to replace the DVR?

Thanks for any suggestions.
