Yesterday, it was raining here and in the living room we have a Directv r-16-300 DVR (I hate it), which is why I took and "gave" it to my sister and she is fine with it, any how the thing decided (on it's own) to reboot itself during the rain storm. My question is anybody have a clue as to why.

BTW: it was not because of a power flicker (at least according to 2 of my APC su700net backup power supply's (one on my computer one on my HDVR2 and tv)

All leased equipment returned

On 7/8/2011 Directv charges me for 2 receivers one DVR at ($175.00) and a Standard STB for ($45.00), good grief!!


Note: Directv did reverse the equipment charges

Perhaps it lost its satellite signal briefly? That shouldn't generally trigger a reboot, but it might.

If it lost signal for an extended time, lack of guide data might be the culprit that resulted in the reset. Doesn't sound like it was interrupted long enough for that though.
