522 Won't Turn on
Posted 18 October 2006 - 11:38 AM
Talked to Tech support--never heard of anything like this. If I turn the receiver off, I can't get it back on without a reboot. If I leave it on, will stay on all day, but the next morning, TV1 and TV2 lights show, but just get the "press select" screen. Reboot and leave it on during the day (I disabled the 4 hour power off).
Anyone have any ideas? I have about 80 hours of shows we are saving or haven't watched, including last season's Lost and I'd rather not lose them.
I did unplug the power, but only for about 10 seconds. I'll try longer tonight.
Side note--if I have to get a new receiver, I'd like a 622, but I already have one I got in May. When I talked to the tech person, I was told I could only have one 622 until May. Anyone know if this is true?

As for getting a 622, I suspect they'll only replace the 522 with another 522, but you never know what you can talk a willing CSR into.

On a long shot, try having it do the download at a different time.
