    My unit is showing a yellow light on the front. This is the light that is usually red when recording a show. It has been doing this for about 14 hours now. The unit is otherwise operating normally. Even when recording a show last night, the light was yellow. I have an R10 with 6.3e. I can't seem to locate my operating manual. Any ideas on the cause of this?

    IIRC, the yellow light is lit when it's making a phone call.

    I'm guessing it really isn't, it just didn't turn off after the last phone call
    (if you even have a phone line hooked up).

    Reboot usually fixes the odd problems.

    Thank you. I was hoping it was something minor like that. I will reboot.

    Yes Yellow light is a Phone Call, update etc. Mine was on for about 2 Hours today on my R15 unit.

    The Unit may not of successfully hung up, or if it did get an update, it needs a reboot.

    I have 6.3e with ,#211 as the dial prefix (so PPP connection over serial port). I sometimes see the yellow light appear for 10 to 30 seconds without the unit attempting to make a call (I get an email when ppp connections are made) and when no connection is scheduled to be made.

    Doesn't seem to impact functionality; it's just odd!
