    Are these almost weekly updates different from what I have set to happen around 5 am in the power settings? It gives the option to continue watching or update power settings, so that makes it seem like it should be doing this at 5 am as requested.

    Your "5 AM" is just a request. It's also based on what else is happening on the reciever at that time. Maybe you have kids that get up at 5 who watch cartoons on Saturday ?

    In any event, I would set the 5AM to something like 3AM or so. And make sure you don't have any recordings going at that time.

    Thanks, but that’s not it. No kids and husband is often up watching at 3 but not around 5, and we don’t record anything around that time, which is why I set it that way. 10-11 am on a Saturday is really not a great time for updates .

    FirmWare updates would be something different than the daily reboot. It should give you the option to postpone the reboot.

    What do you have the Inactivity timer set for ? Options (in hours) are 2,4,5,6,7,8, Never (not recommended).

    daily reboot is palliative for buggy FW,
    instead of troubleshoot memory leakage, they choose forced daily reboot :(

    Do you turn off the receiver when you are done? If you are just turning off the TV and leaving the receiver running there may be a conflict between the inactivity timer and the reboot setting. I don't see the problem you are seeing with my reset time set to 1am - although the 1am reboot usually happens around 1:40am (despite having no timers ending after 1am).

    Are you seeing 10-11am reboots every Saturday? Any other days of the week?

    Thanks for your reply.

    We turn off the receiver every night. I can’t swear it’s not happening any other day, but it seems like it’s always Saturday. But not every Saturday.

    Inactivity timer is set for 5 am.

    My two options when this happens are “continue watching” or “power settings”. That seems more like the daily reboot than a firmware reboot.

    That's setting for _reboot_ time.

    Inactivity settings are "2,4,5,6,7,8, Never" [hours/duration].

    I would shorten that to 4 or maybe even just 2 hours. With an 8 hour , it could be 2AM when the TV last changed channel or some other activity that registered.
