    I apologize if this is in the wrong thread. Please move if needed. Whenever we turn on one the TV's, it is always a black screen. Once we press the RESET button everything is fine until the next time we turn off/on the TV again. This is fairly recent. Any ideas what may have caused this?

    Well, you're going to need to provide a bit more information. DTV Receiver model, TV model, how is the receiver connected to the TV. Have you tried turning the receiver off and on again instead of resetting it?

    I'm going to take a wild guess and suggest that maybe this is an hdmi handshake issue. I have a Vizio TV and on occasion when turning on the TV and HR44 I will get a black screen with a "resolution not supported" message. I simply turn the HR44 off and on and things work.

    Did your problems start after you received a software update?
