    Been awhile, but I'm thinking some one else ran into this....

    This is my second 211k receiver, the first did not respond to the remote very well, this one is a little better, but it has this problem [ since I received it from Dish] when I hit the "format" button, [ or page up or down, which does the same thing] it freezes the receiver, and after 2 minutes, the receiver re-boots itself, and I have to sit through "acquiring signal" and downloading the guide. This happens EVERY TIME.

    My 222k does NOT do this, NEVER has. Checked hook ups.

    ANY ideas would be welcomed.
