I have had my HR-54 for a few years now, nary a problem with it. Just yesterday, I pressed the red button on the side to reboot. It shows me three purple screens: First it says, “Hello Your DirecTV receiver is starting up”; then “Almost there, a few more seconds please” while showing a progress bar; then “Just a few more seconds...”, which lasts about one to two minutes; then it starts over again. This repeats interminably. First time this happened, I unplugged the power from the box and let it sit for a couple minutes, then plugged it back in, and it worked fine. After that, nothing has helped. Not the red button, not unplugging the cord from the box, not unplugging the power from the wall, not letting the box sit without power overnight—nothing. The same purple screen sequence just keeps repeating. In a similar thread where someone posted a similar problem, a reply suggested pressing “Select” to interrupt the sequence and follow the prompts for a BIST self-test. That doesn’t work here. Nothing I have tried interrupts it so far. Does anyone recognize this and have any suggestions?
