Several times I've come into the room to see the DVR apaprently off, no lights whatsoever on the front panel lit up, and a _very_ loud whirring noise. It sounds like the fan is cranked-up all the way. No pressing of buttons on the DVR itself or the remote changes this. The only thing I can do is unplug it for a minute or two.
After that it's usually good for maybe 1/2 a day. Then it happens again. I wouldn't think it's overheating, there's plenty of airflow space around it on all sides, and it's in a very roomy cabinet off the floor with no doors.
Any ideas? My guess is it's toast? If it is dead, any chance Dish might upgrade me to a Hopper? We've been customers for about 15 years.
Thanks very much in advance,
