    I took my hughes directivo dvr120 with me on a trip and when I tried to hook it up to my daughters tv, it would not turn on. I remember some threads several year ago which said that replacing the power supply was easy but there were some precautions you should take. does anyone know what these precautions are?

    Mainly not to electrocute yourself. Leave the box unplugged for five minutes or more before you remove the cover and start to disassemble it. There can still be high voltage present in the capacitors for a while after unplugging.
