Shutdown / soft reset / hard reset
Posted 29 September 2006 - 09:56 AM
Sorry if this is a naive question, but I just don't want to do something I shouldn't. Is shutting down the same as powering off (which isn't really powering off, it's more of a standby mode)?
Thanks for any clarity you all can provide!

Hold the power button on the 622 for a count of ten and then let go.
Pull the power plug from the receiver. What I usually do is make sure I have no recording active at the time. Might also want to place the unit in standby
Press the power button on the 622 breifly or on the remote control.
Same as a hard reboot. Just don't plug the unit back in.
I am sure other people do it other ways and will pipe in.

For the "soft" reboot, you can hold the power button on the actuall receiver in for several seconds. When all of the lights on the box light up, it is rebooting.
For the "hard" reboot, you will need to unplug the unit for several seconds (I usually do about 10) and then the unit will reboot automatically.
