    I came home last night & found my HR-21 stuck in a self check mode & it's continued for the last 6 hrs.It told me I had a 15-238 error code.Is that my HR-21 ? Has anyone else had that happen to them ?

    Thanks !

    Try unpluging your receiver for thirty minutes.

    At least I'm working a few double shifts in the next 2 days to lessen the shock.I'm back on the OTA antenna.

    They replaced my Slimline 5 dish with a Slimline 3 dish.I no longer get the 110 or the 119 bird,which is no loss to me.I also had a bad lnb on the old dish.They replaced my receiver with another HR21-200 & my recording problems,pixelization & searching for signal problems disappeared.

    The service guy showed me one thing that was interesting,my access card looked singed from the heat of my receiver.He said the damaged card could have caused a few problems which I described above.Anyone else have that problem with the card being damaged by heat ?
