Just wondering if anyone can give me any advice on where to go with this and what to do with my other reciever. I posted this on Direct TV site and not much advice given or input so maybe someone out there can help me before I do total reset or replace unit. I tried the simple unplug reset several times without luck. I have a Hughes DVR2 and Direct TV mulit sat. First issue - apparently the local call in number is shut down in this area (approx 44 days ago). Everyone who has Tivo without Direct TV cannot use it and with Direct TV, you have to use a long distance number from list or possibly get a toll free number. I have heard various answers from locals who called into DirectTV. Some techs say they cannot give out a 1-800 number, others are waiting for it to be sent in to them, others said the operator acts like they know nothing of the problem. So, that is one issue which may or may not have contributed to my big one below. My problems started on my Hughes DVR when I decided to get rid of the call in reminder screen last weekend (July 13). I had to try several numbers until I changed it to one about an hour away. I did a test, phone call successful, then my problems started. I had my system shut down every so often until the next day it started powering off and constantly rebooting. Now, my other unit which I did not change number on is fine. This one reboots every 10 minutes. I was away during the week and it still is doing it. I called Direct TV before I left and the girl said "oh yeah, this is really common", she then went on to say she thinks there is a fix but not sure, I then waited about 5 minutes until she looked for the answer which she thought was a system reset, but then backtracked and said she does not recommend it. To be honest, she really didn't sound like she was so sure of herself, and then said she would note it on her log since she thought the dial up number and my resetting it may be an issue relevant to someone. She said I could reset or she could send me another unit. I told her I would deal with it when I got back in town. So, I ask this. Since I really do no wish to lose all of my info and programs. Is there any suggestions on how to remedy this. Also, it seems to me it all was a result of my changing dial in number or the call in, am I correct? Reason being, I am afraid to change number on other reciever and ruin this one too, what would you do with this unit??? If I do decide to try a reset, do you think it will help? If so, I still have the dial up number dilemma because I really don't wish to pay to call in if I don't have to. Tricky I know, sorry so long a post. I just wanted an opinion on what I should try next because the DirectTV tech sounded a little shaky and I really don't want to do a total reset unless I absolutely have to and lose all of my programs and settings. The other forum told me to try and clear my suggestions and program prefs, to do list, etc. before I reset whole system. Will this do anything? Any opinion will be wonderful and welcome.
