    :shrug: I was told to do a smart cart reboot on my 721 to correct a timer conflict problem which wasn't really a conflict. Is this safe to do? If I do it what will happen? Any help will be appreciated.

    Beats reaching around like the Dishplayer. :)

    As far as I know it is safe.

    should I turn the unit off when I pull the smart card out?

    Is this any different then holding down power button on the front panel for 6 sec, until it re-boots?

    I've been told by DISH that the smart-card reboot is a bit more intensive than the power-button reboot, but I don't know if they really know what they're talking about. Its a good idea to do this as a preventative measure every week or so, just like rebooting your PC. Us 501 users are painfully aware of this.
