    Is it normal for the 922 to take 5+ mins to finally load up after a hard or soft reset?

    Should be little less then that - I would (without measure) say 3 mins, but if you want I could measure it for you.

    Umm ? Need technical advise ? ;) By obvious reason, I could play with any model regardless the provider or manufacturer.

    Out of curiosity and in the interest of furthering world peace, I just now did a red button reset on my VIP922 and timed boot up time. It was exactly 5 minutes from pressing the button until live TV was displayed.

    Repeated the test. Same results. 5 minutes from button press until live TV.

    YMMV. :D

    Our 922 takes about 5 minutes to reboot. Horribly slow, especially when we need it to reboot after a freeze-up.

    For the short time I was with DirecTV, the HR-20 actually took almost 10 minutes to boot up.

    Typically 5 minutes sounds about right... but there are some circumstances (especially if your reboot is following a receiver lockup) where I have observed mine taking 10-15 minutes to come fully back to normal service.

    Perhaps TV play its role in delays, while using Athletic Works Chronograph, 922 and Dell 2408 monitor, I got the time as 4:14. From plug the cord to a picture.
