By the way, you'll be billed $4.99/month for that rattle.
With this being a new model they may not have anything in the stream for it yet.
ok... back from dinner....
so i see that a few of you are swapping the bbc's for the newer ones... is this necessary?
Mine has gone flawlessly.
For those of you lucky guys that got their box, and are still having issues:
If you can get into the menus, I would recommend doing a RESET EVERTHING. It will blank everything EXCEPT the software version (I just confirmed this with VOS). As it appears that there is nothing in the stream, this is important, no?
This procedure would, on occasion, work magic back in the dark days of the HR20-700. At least it won't hurt anything.
Good point, at this point there shouldn't be much recording to loose at this point of time.
Mine did the exact same thing. And the numbers in the upper left corner of the screen were cycling... or maybe the better term is changing constantly. I don't know that they were repeating. It went on for a while and I just RBR'd it again.
Got nothing to loose, i'LL TRY IT NOW...
I can not get to the menus... just sticks when trying to get satellite information and then goes to the "Aquiring guide data" banner screen. I would love to be able to try a reset everything, but I can't.
mine just cycled through numbers for a long time. eventually, it found nothing and rebooted on its own.
as other's has already mentioned, i have the recent activity listing the HR21-100, but when i check my receivers listed on the account it's not listed.
Your's almost sounds like a cabling/signal issue.
Are you on a "known good" set of cables? Or is it a new run?
It's not, I had the same sort of issues, rbr before you go to bed if you can, and let it go all night, it may eventually finish
Yeah, maybe just the hiccups of a brand new receiver...
ok i couldn't wait till Monday, just installed it and i'll see what happens
I wouldn't worry too much until we get the word that all is ok on directvs end and that they should be working,
on step 1 of 2: checking sat settings i got a flicker of a grey screen
