This does not actually reset your receiver or DVR. It just re-sends DirecTV's authorization codes in case your receiver has lost local channels or other channels that you subscribe to. You can do the same thing on DirecTV's phone system.

And just to add a little for those that may not know. Normally it only takes about a minute with the phone system. Just call the 1-800-531-5000 and when it asks you a question like "How may I help you?" all you have to do is speak "seven two two". It will then re-send the authorization to your receivers.
