    I hope this doesn't sound stupid. But I recently purchased a DishNetwork system. I'm not even sure of the model number of my receive. It is a receiver that can control 2 rooms from 1 box. The second remote is a RF remote.

    Anyway, I had some problems the first 2 weeks where I needed to reset the receiver by holding the POWER button for a few seconds then the unit would reboot.

    This problem seems to have fixed it self. Does the unit download "firmware" updates as well at night?

    I also had a problem with my caller ID showing the wrong number sometimes. It would show the name of the previous caller!

    If the unit is off and Dish Network has sent a firmware update, yeah, it will download it.

    welcome to DBSTalk =)

    Dish has two receivers that fit your description the 322/522. The 522 just updated to L168 so that is probably what you have and what maybe improving your receiver.

    so...they do send "updates". Ok..I just like solutions to my problems. This one seems to "FIX ITSELF" without me doing anything. As long as I know they probably sent an update. I'm happy.

    Note that BOTH the Green AND Blue lights on the box must be off for it to be in stand-by. Stand-by is what most people call 'off', but these boxes do not actually turn off. It must be left plugged in, too - do NOT turn it off via a wall switch or 'clapper' type device.

    I do put the unit in standby. However, we like to fall asleep using a sleep timer on the TV. So, the receiver usually isn't in standby until early morning when we wake up and go to work. Unless there is a way for a sleep timer on the receiver?
