    It might be worth trying an unplug and let it sit until morning and then plug in...sometimes these boxes hang on for a bit before they do a reset....

    Remote's nice, but when I shake it, something's rattling in there.

    I started taking photos from the moment I plugged in the power cord. Unfortunately, I didn't get too far. Here's what I have of the start up process.

    Mine froze twice in the last 30 mins.. So I've decided to force a firmware download. I'll let you know how it goes.

    Also, still isn't recieving locals, but is receiving everything else.

    It froze when I was using trickplay and trying to jump back 7 secs....

    Doesn't sound like anything too serious. It only rattles when you shake it semi-hard. And it seems to work at least in some respects. I tried to force a download at one point, but it was like the download process wasn't getting any sat information either.

    But I know the number keys work. The select button and the exit buttons work. Plus, pressing other buttons would cause the little light at the top blink.

    Used the remote to change preferences, set the box to AV1, and have the remote control the TV and amp. Remote response seems just fine. And instead of the DirecTV sound effect, we now have the rattle.

    Actually, in addition to the sound effects...

    Actually, I just pulled the batteries out and the rattle all but disappeared. Try that. I think it's just them moving a little when shaken.

    Yes, I thought it was the batteries to start, but it still rattled with no batteries in there. But not as loudly.

    So more than one thing's loose?

    BTW, why so many of us from MD in the pool?

    Just luck of the draw, or something sinister? (not to be paranoid...) :lol:
