    Okay, here is the story.

    About 6 months ago, I got a new Multi-switch (along with 2 R15s).

    I already had an old (old old) Sony DTV Receiver (receiver only, a little black box).

    About 2 months ago - it just suddenly fried. It wouldn't even power up. Couldn't even get a light to go on.

    So, they sent out a Reconditioned Phillips box to replace it (standard box, not DVR).

    This morning, same problem - NO POWER. Can't even get a light to come on.

    Yes, I checked the plugs, the power strip, etc etc etc.

    So, my question is -

    Can I bad multiswitch be frying my boxes?

    (By the way, the sony sat-t60 is not fried, neither are the 2 other DVRs).

    Thanks

    Thanks - that's my thinking too - but it's odd that 2 had the same issue. But I wouldn't think a multiswitch issue would impact all the boxes.
