    6 resets so far
    8:58 MST
    9:21 MST
    9:43 MST with additional reset in the middle of that
    9:58 MST
    10:58 MST

    Doesn't include resets that occur during the day. I wrote to DTC corporate, and to the loyalcustomer@directv email. Haven't heard back from corporate, but we're about 1 day away from giving up on DirecTV. Hate to lose The Walking Dead if I switch to Dish, and Cox Cable is a customer service nightmare. So conflicted!

    That certainly makes the Dish deal more attractive......

    LOL ... somebody pry my hand off the phone. Could anything be worst than this???

    I'm assuming we would REALLY say the same thing every hour.

    We all have computers and most of us have DIALUP MODEMS in our computers doing nothing. It's pretty easy to set up those modems to do continuous dialing. Sure got Bell South's attention back in mid-1990s.

    1. Dial DTV
    2. Disconnect after 6 seconds and re-dial.
    3. Caller ID doesn't come up until the SECOND ring.
    4. No trace possible.
    5. Bell South called it CYBER-TERRORISM. Indeed. No worst then them shutting down our local BBS.

    Not much different than what DirecTV is doing to us every 30 minutes and then there's the LOST programming for the next 8 minutes.

    :(:(

    Who would have thought the RICHEST MAN in the world cannot find competent people to keep his satellite running right.

    Oh, for hitting them where it actually does hurt a bit:
    I don't want credits for the future or free this channel or that channel for three months. Because how much of that time will I actually be able to watch tv?
    So I've got them on an automatic credit for service until this is fixed. And tonight got an additional $20 credit to my bill. And I'm not a particularly good customer. I pay my bill late ALL THE TIME. And not much in programming, but I do use PPV about once or twice a month. And I'm pretty long time. Not sure how long, but obviously years long enough to have an old tivo from them. I'm sure y'all with expensive packages could do better. Just have to be angry and determined apparently.
    Accept no less. Absolutely no reason to pay for service we're not getting, as I don't consider the reboot screen to be "service."

    We are getting closer to the precipus of the black whole.

    Just a thought,

    First the reboots were once every 24 hrs, then 12 hrs, then 8 hrs, then 6 hrs, then 4 hrs, then 3 hrs, then 2 hrs, then 1 hr, then 30 minutes, so this spiral down would predict that at some point it will never have time to be able to download any so called software update when if one is ever made for each and every version of S1, S2 different brands and R10 because it will not make it through a reboot before it reboots again while rebooting if it is still attached to the satelite input lines.

    This is what they could have in store for us tommorrow.

    A random hardware reset during HDD accesses would be very bad. The resets I've watched on my box so far are more indicative of software detecting a problem and performing an orderly software-driven reset. Is your green screen box permanently down for the count? Have you power cycled it manually (power cord)?

    You guys are now learning what "To big to fail means" Thats why I moved everything out of the big banks.
    I vote for class action against d....there must be 75000 customers right now with no real service they can actually use. My 2 tivos are useless.

    Nah. The last 30 minutes of spiral is a very slow burn. We reach its event horizon at 12:28am on Dec 21st. :p

    I'm giving it the 3 hours it wants to try and fix itself before I pull the plug on it. It happened at one of the "now normal" resets. Came to the green screen, waited about 2 minutes, rebooted, came back to the green screen for another 2 miinutes or so, rebooted, has now been on the green screen for about 2 hours. I think I'm going to bed once I watch my other unit reboot at 1:28am.

    Best of luck. When my unit green screened like that last time, the HDD was dead for good. It's what prompted me to upgrade to 1TB and a new power supply.

    Bang! For grins, I put it on standby about 30 seconds beforehand. It rebooted anyway.
