I just purchased my HR21 unit. At first, with my old 10-250 unit, it smelled a lot of solder for a few days. I am sensitive to that smell of new electronics. I wonder if the new HR21's smell less. I was thinking of degassing it by plugging it in for a few days in another room where I will not smell it. But just by plugging it in -- won't it just go to sleep in 1 minute? Is there a way to keep it "going" or "awake" so that it it going at full tilt while not connected to the dish or to the TV?
