I guess that makes you a majority of one. If your power never flickers, why do you need a UPS?


Better safe than sorry. Plus I got a bunch of UPSs for cheap a while ago.

I'll get into this from the "I have no issues" and don't have the router or receivers on UPS either.

Update on my issues:
One of my 2tb hard drives got the reset and attempting to fix errors screen for 2 days. After it finished it still wouldn't work, so I took it out wiped the drive and reinstalled it in the enclosure. Got the same fixing errors screen for another 2 days then it still didn't work. (Could be the enclosure since the drive worked fine in the computer)...?

So I have been running one of my HR24's on the internal hard drive for several days now and I am still experiencing the HR24's dropping out of the network.

As to some of the other posts, the deca box is powered from a wall wart hooked to the coax. The wall wart is plugged in to the UPS as well.

I'm going to call up Directv this week and have them come back out because this is getting ridiculous. This plus screwing up our auto billing for the last 3 months (requiring a 20 minute call each time), and the lack of fox and nbc in hd has got me really regretting my decision to commit to Directv for another 2 years. :nono2:

Agreed calling them out is the best solution.

You definitely have something else going on there beyond any HR24 problem...the symptoms suggest a wider setup or connection problem.
