Well directv engineers thought they had the situation under control. Guess not. Dealers all got an email the other day saying there still might be an issue. They released new software for the 700 which should have solved the problem. Yesterday i ran into the new problem. The reciever wont even do a software update, it locks up during the download. One 700 stuck at 14%, the other 700 stuck at 9%. Rebooted several times, same percentage on both every time. The hr24-100 dvr downloaded and activated no problems. Swapped the lnb from a wnc to an eagle apsen and all was well. So thats great if they fixed the software, but you cant get a download on the reciever to fix the problem, they show zeros on almost all trandsponders, and a couple will show 96-98 here and there, dont matter the satellite its on, same readings.
