I am having an ongoing problem with a receiver being "dead" first thing in the morning. Before bed I turn the receiver OFF (put it in STANDBY really). In the morning it won't turn back on with the remote, nor does it respond to any button presses on the unit itself. It sounds like the internal hard drive is spinning but I don't hear the read/write heads accessing the disc. I am able to bring the receiver back to life with a red button reset, after which it continues to operate normally all day long.
This problem happened roughly 5 or 6 times over the last three weeks on a HR21-200 receiver. After contacting DirecTV, they sent me a HR21-700 as a replacement. The replacement unit exhibited the exact same problem today on the very first morning it was in service.
I have an HR20-100 in another room and has not been affected by this problem.
All receivers are/were running 0x452.
Is anyone else experiencing similar problems, and do you have any ideas about how to fix this?
Thanks in advance,
