Hello. I am new to this forum. I joined after reading kspeters thread about Remote #2 on the Dishplayer 942. After almost a year of having VOOM, I switched to Dish Network on Apr 21. The PQ for HD feeds on Dish are nowhere near as good as they were on VOOM but, There is no better choice for me at this time. Since I first had the 942 installed, the UHF remote has been flakey. I gave myself a few days to make sure I understood the receiver before calling Dish Tech support. The guy at tech support was great, he spent nearly 45 mins with my on the phone to try to fix the problem. At the end of the phone conversation, he left me with "It is a software problem - we will fix it soon". That was 2 weeks ago and I am beginning to think there is a problem with my 942 receiver because no-one else is reporting the problem I am having. After calling Tech support twice since then, I am getting nowhere with them. What happens is simple. After a full power-off reset, The UHF remote works from anywhere around 20 to 30 minutes. After that, the receiver ignores anything I do on the remote. A couple weeks ago, I could simply change the remote code (press and hold sat, change number and press #) and it would work for about 10 minutes. Something has changed (software update?) because, not even that works anymore. The only way to fix the problem is to unplug the receiver for 30 secs and plug it back in. It might be worth mentioning that I have the receiver in Dual mode, that is the mode that allows the TV1 and TV2 outputs to show two different things. (DVR, tuner1 or tuner2) In single mode, they show the same thing, which is not useful for what I want to use the receiver for. As it stands right now, In Dual mode the receiver output #2 is useless to me because the remote has no function. My wife or I cannot watch anything on the second TV (50" 4:3 RPTV) in the downstairs master bedroom because I have to go upstairs and reset the receiver every 20 mins or so. Is anyone else having this problem? If it is just me then I know I have a lemon receiver. I like the HD-DVR and the general idea of the Dishplayer942, although my receiver is annoying the heck out of me at the moment. I have tried everything mentioned in the previous "Remote #2" post (ie. Change batteries, flipped the key back and forth UHF to UHF Pro, checked the A/B switch) nothing works except a full power recycle (not even a front panel reset). My #1 remote is keyed to code '1' and the second is '2'. I have tried many combinations like: Remote 1 (2) and Remote 2 (11). One funny solution I have thought about is putting a UHF remote power switch between the receiver and my UPS. That way I could cycle the power on the receiver remotely. :lol: That is still slow because it takes so long for the receiver to "boot up" and re-find the sats again. (Why do the programmers not save this info?) Phil in TN Also, the DVI output of the receiver does not work with my PJ. Component still looks okay, so I use it. I say it does not work but, I have only let it sit about 5 minutes before giving up on it.
