    I have an r15 that I use for slingbox. We had some major electrical storms recently with power outages of several days. It now drops tuner 2 occasionally and has to be reset. If I reset by choosing reset in the menu (the only way I can do it remotely) it gets stuck at about 70% on receiving satellite info. If I reset by pulling the plug it resets all the way. Anyone have any helpful ideas? Is Dtv still requiring the return of r15's?

    Just looking at the possibilities. I am thinking of trying a forced software download in case the operating software is corrupted and if that fails trying a complete hard drive reformat. It also depends on how often this presents a problem when I'm not at home to unplug reboot. Also wondering if this is the beginning of the end for this r15.
