    I recently installed an HR34 and 2 clients for a Directv customer. I replaced all fittings and barrels in the system. Forced the software download on the HR34, activated all recievers and everything was working great. Got a call from the customer a couple days later stating that when the clients are turned off for a couple hours and then turned back on they display a grey screen and are unresponsive to any remote function and even the power button on the client itself. RBR is the only way to resolve the issue. It happens on both clients. If the clients are constantly left on there is no issue. I ran a system test on the HR34 and its returning an error code of 72-79-041. Any thoghts or suggestions?

    The 041 is just an ID

    You could also run a coax test...press Guide and right arrow at the same time...and check both the PHY levels and mesh values.

    note that the 79 eror code is meaningless because the Genie registers a drop connection every time a C31 client is turn off.
