    Response to sat pro:

    At 2:55 PM, when it rebooted, I was watching a recorded program. But the tuners were on 285, investigation discovery, and MSNBC, 356.

    channels on this transponder include:
    ESPN 206
    ESPN2 209
    BRVO 237
    Spike 241
    USA 242

    csadoian and newswatcher,

    What channels were the tuners on when the 11:50am pst reboot hit your boxes?

    Please everybody start posting your channel #s and reboot times, so we can figure it out. If you know what channels both tuners were on that is even better. Thanks

    Sat pro...Unfortunately, I don't know what channels were tuned during earlier reboots. It could very well have been MSNBC but unlikely to have been any other channel on transponder 11 since I haven't typically watched those lately. From now on, I'll watch carefully which channels are tuned when a reboot occurs and I'll post it.

    FYI --- Random reboot this morning approx. 8AM EST I was listening to MUSIC on 802 on my upgraded TVIO Series 2 and the other rebooted a very short time later and it was tuned to CBS Channel 2 - I was recording a show on that DVR.

    Hope this helps identifiy that specific channels are the root of the problem ?????

    4:57pm here in MD - both Phillips DSR704's rebooted about 2 minutes after getting off the phone with DirecTV support. Was told fairly quickly they were aware of the issue and were working on a fix. Did not try to offer me anything - just said to check back in a few days if it was still an issue.

    Timonium,...
    In Maryland. Was watching a recorded show in the last hour and my series 2 Hughes rebooted twice in 15 minutes. Called DTV last night and the CSR was no help, but made sure to log the complaint on our account.

    Update - series 2 DVR rebooted 6:28 PM EST as I was watching Notre Dame on Channel 4 NBC. (LOCAL CHANNEL) other recorder on Music Channel 801.


    Does anyone really believe that this has something to do with the Channel/Transponder ?????
    ME - I doubt it !!!!!

    Had the dreaded 7:55 p.m. reboot while watching the Notre Dame game on local Fox (30 in Jacksonville, FL.) Unsure what channel the other receiver was on at the time.

    I like many others have been following this message board after contacting Weaknees about having my Sony T-60 and Hughes R-10 repaired.

    My frustration grows daily as the resets seem to be getting more frequent and the information from Directv seems to be scarce.

    I Tweeted to @DirectvService and at least got a response albeit it's the standard response.

    "Thomas, sorry for the problems. Our Engineers are working to resolve them. We appreciate your patience."

    What response do you expect? Yes, DirecTV knows about these issues. Yes, TiVo engineering is working on the problem. When they find the problem and fix it, I expect we will know....

    So now we have a third confirmation of the fact that the reboots occur at the same time when 2 receivers are tuned to the same channels/transponder.

    Mine just rebooted a couple of minutes ago (not at five to the hour, though), while I was watching a recorded program. It's now going into the fourth attempt to re-acquire information from the satellite. This is new - it usually gets it on the second try. Both tuners are on DIY now that live TV is finally available.

    I've begun playing "TiVo" tag: when my living-room DVR reboots I have the same football game or show on the bedroom DVR, which has never rebooted at the same time as the living-room unit, continue watching until the other DVR reboots.

    Ah, the wonderful world of DTV! Not.:mad:

    Newswatcher, I sympathize. I have taken to having another TV in the house tuned to the show I am trying to watch on the Tivo, just in case of random reboots - then, I can run into the other room to watch, without waiting for my energy-saving TV to warm up, so I don't miss anything. I try to watch some shows live, since I have gotten so many partial recordings. It is taking a lot of planning just to watch a show at this point. Recording two shows at the same time is a complete crapshoot. But, Directv is working on it, and may get it fixed in a few days! Or not....

    Here in Missouri HDVR2 rebooted at 7:12pm and 9:55pm the last 2 reboots. Both times the 2 tuners were tuned to Lifetime 252 and Hallmark 312. I have 3 other HDVR2s and they are rebooting at a different time than the other one. They are all three on 304 TVLand and rebooting at the same time. On these 3 I am only using 1 tuner.
