I currently have a Hughes Series 1 unit that is about 4 years old. I just purchased a Series 2 unit bc my old unit is almost fried. It won't make a call bc it will never retrieve the local numbers to call. It fails or simply stalls at the "rendering?" stage forever. I moved a few years ago and have never made a daily call in almost 3 years. I bought the Series 2 unit off of eBay and the account is paid until the end of the year. I have DirectTV and the Series 1 unit is a DTV Tivo unit. The previous owner used the unit with cable. Do I have to go throught the initial setup phase again if Im switching to satellite?? Also, when I try to connect to the Tivo service everything is fine until I get to the downloading stage. It stays there forever and never completes. I can make test calls perfectly fine. Any suggestions?? Please let me know any concerns on my setup and anything that needs to be adressed. If it wasn't obvious, I'm using the old Series 1 unit as the satellite receiver into the Series 2.
