    I noticed something strange after downloading last weekends CE so I decided to reboot manually to see if I would notice the same thing.

    Part 2 of 2 during the receiving sat info process
    I noticed that the progress bar is much faster then I remember it ever being. Then it finishes at 90 percent instead of 100. What in that last 10 percent is it missing?

    Once the picture comes on, the guide shows all the duplicates, TEST channels, etc.

    It happened last friday night, when it rebooted itself and just now during manual reboot.

    I don't know if it's CE related or not but I sure haven't seen anything like this before.

    I believe that would be the "checksum" area?

    Hmmmm....Have you heard of anyone else seeing that? I don't recall seeing any posts with the same issue. System works fine regardless.

    No sorry...once I get the "software download complete" and it goes to the
    Satellite set-up, I usually walk away until the picture comes back on...
    If you are correct, then that 90 percent done would be a problem..

    I haven't had any issues besides the screwed up guide which fixes itself within an hour.

    I just wanted to bring it up as a possible cause to the auto reboot issues a lot of people are having.

    Hopefully there will be another CE this weekend. I'd like to see if that makes it boot normally again.

    Just thought of something that might be causing this problem.
    I don't think it is directv for 1 reason if they needed to do this
    the worst time would be doring a football game, would PO
    too many people.
    What i am wondering is if this problem is related to dvr's that
    are networked. I don't want to point any fingers but i remember
    when cable company's were sending out bullets to kill illegal boxes
    i know they killed a tv i had, i didn't have a illegal box i didn't even
    have a box had cable hooked to tv. I don't think they are still doing
    this but wonder if they are targeting directv customers.

    It's not limited to DVRs that are networked. So no.
