    Ok...I've never seen this before. Does anyone know what this is? I was rebooting an HR20 because it appeared to be stuck in double play mode and went to watch the other DVR. When I turned back, this is what I had....

    Has anyone ever seen this before?

    The tech that came out here yesterday had no idea it existed. I showed him and he was pissed they didn't show him at D* university. :D

    For those not in the know, it can be accessed by pushing select during the receiver test upon boot up.

    Yes, but exercise great care because there are options that will reset all your settings and erase your hard drive.

    Could you be a bit more specific? There are a lot of parts to boot up. "Receiver test" does not ring a bell. What is on the screen during this part of boot?

    It is blue and reads "Running receiver self-check". Hit select at that point, either on the face of the unit, or the remote.
