HR24 keeps resetting

    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!

    That's what will happen without an active satellite connection and subscription.

    Darn, thought so. Would have been nice to know that up front.

    It shouldn't reboot that often, but without a signal it should reboot every few hours in an attempt to self repair what is causing signal loss ( even though this basically never fixed issue anyways)
