Hi Everyone


I have a H-24 receiver that is no longer turning on. Started a little while ago. Neither attempting to turn the receiver on from the remove or front panel works. The only option I have is to disconnect power and then connect it back. The receiver goes through its power on sequence and turns on normally. Everything works again for a while.


I have the Power Savings turned on. I suspect that it's keeping it from turning on. For now I turned it off and will see what happens. 


Has anyone else had this problem?

I did have this problem with my C41 a long while back.  I also had to turn off the power saver and then do some sort of hard reset.  I've never had any "H-" receivers, so I can't speak to this, but I'm sure Peds or HoTat or one of the other gurus will come along and advise more thoroughly.

Here I come.  :righton:


Make sure the HD receiver is not plugged in to one of those "smart" power strips.

Here’s to the crazy ones.
The misfits. The rebels.
The the troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things different.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.
