    I cancelled my DirecTV service, but have been watching the last of my recorded shows on the old Series 2 Phillips DirecTiVo. I was able to skip setup and get to the Now Playing list.

    Something happened, and the box wants to re-run the satellite detection. I don't have the dish hooked up, and I can't get out of the process.

    Is there any way to skip this during power up? Or should I hook up the coax cables to the box and try to "see" the satellites?

    Thanks for any help!

    Press the DirecTV button on the remote.

    I tried that. It won't exit the setup. Do you mean during the boot process?

    During the initial boot where it is searching for satellite, yes.

    Thanks for the help Steve. I didn't get a chance to try the button during initial boot, but apparently the end of the satellite setup will eventually time out and drop you to DirecTV Central.
