    I was just poking around my account at the D* site and noticed something I hadn't seen before. On the left side there is a tab Latest News - New. I thought it would just be a note telling how to do a RBR or pull the power but apparently it is a way to select which of your receivers you want D* to resend the authorization codes to. Check the receiver and click "Reset". I wonder if this does anything different than the RBR. It says it takes 3 to 5 minutes to reset do I assume it does a reboot and not just sends the authorization codes. Anyone tried this yet?

    And just to add a little for those that may not know. Normally it only takes about a minute with the phone system. Just call the 1-800-531-5000 and when it asks you a question like "How may I help you?" all you have to do is speak "seven two two". It will then re-send the authorization to your receivers.
