First off let me say I expect the answer to be "deal with it" but I figure I'll ask incase there is a solution. I have an HR24 HD DVR and I have put my directv service on hold. I'm temporarily living at my inlaws who have AT&T uverse. Per threads I saw on this site I unplugged my HR24 before my service was put on hold so I could still access my DVR. Right now the only connections are for power and HDMI. I have access to my recorded programs, but every 15 or so minutes the box resets itself and tries searching for a satellite. I can't find a way to skip the startup/search so for every 10 minutes of show I watch 5 minutes of startup. Any suggestions? Much appreciated!
