Is "kickstart" enabled in an unmodified DirecTV Hughs HDVR2 with 6.2v software?
I've tried the procedure listed here:
Here is what I am trying:
With my DirecTV Tivo remote, I hold down the yellow pause button. About 1 min and 15 seconds later, the green light goes out and the two yellow lights come on briefly (about 1/2 second or so). (under normal boot the green light flashes yellow briefly) With the yellow lights on I'm entering kickstart code "54" for hard disk test. Sometimes the unit continues it normal bootup (which is another couple minutes) . Sometimes it will restart, but no diagnostic screen comes up.
Any suggestions to get the kickstart code to work? Has anyone had success doing the kickstart? I think I read they have, but they also had the instantcake version running, which might have those features installed. I am wondering if DirecTV did not enable that feature?
