    Thanks for helping out.

    I have been a DirecTV customer for 12 years but recently switched to Dish and pretty confused about a lot of things.

    But I will only bother you with one.

    I upgraded to the Super Joey this week just to have additional tuners. But, I would like to completely start my hopper over and reset up all of my timers, favorites and all that just like I did when I first plugged it in. Reformat it?

    With DirecTV you could do this inside the menu.

    All I can find on the hopper is reset defaults and this doesn't do what I want.



    Is this even possible? Dish advised me to pull the plug for a bit.. that did nothing at all.

    Thanks for your help!!

    I don't know but what's the reason for doing that?

    And I'd ask all your questions. Don't be shy! :)

    I would have thought reset to default would eliminate all the timers too... but the problem might be in the fact that the remote backs up timers and some other settings. It might end up restoring them after you reset? Just guessing here.

    The timers and other settings are stored in the remote. After the reset use the System Wizard ( zero key) to restore your timers.

    He doesn't want the timers restored. That seems to be the problem he is asking about... he wants everything to reset and he says they are not.

    Los Gatos,...
    What if you took the batteries out of the remote for a few days? During those days perform the receiver reset. There has to be some way to keep the remote from restoring the timers.
