I wish I had a better description but I am bumfuzzled by this. NR/0x744
Was watching Live programming on HR34 at 1:44AM ET (16 minutes prior to clock reset an hour) and the screen/audio goes blank.
Hit volume on TV.....screen display - its not the TV gone out.
Hit D* Remote, Channel Up, Channel Down, Setup, Menu....nothing.
Wait a few minutes, still nothing.
Reset by using the red button @ access card.
Normal looking reboot.
Comes back up with live TV. However, when I go to recorded programs, it says no recorded programs and 100% free.
I go to menu - but instead of all the options, all I get are My Directv and Startup Menu - none of the normal menu items like Search & Browse, Recordings, Extras and Setting/Help. I've seen this happen when there is an issue with the Dish connection. But I am getting live TV.
Go to Startup Menu / Whole Home. It does not see the networked units.
Go to Signal Strength. It cannot get a signal on any Satellite on any Tuner - Even 101 Transponder #1, yet I am watching live TV.
Reboot again - this time pulling the plug and leaving it out 60 seconds.
System Test shows no issues.
Then after about 10 minutes I get a signal on the signal meter. No normal menu or anything else - and no programs.
About 5 minutes later I get a normal menu.....and of course the programs all come back.
I have seen this once before where the programs disappear for a few minutes, so that didn't freak me out.....but I am wondering wtf happened.
