Here is something pretty cool that I found today. Instructions on how to make your 501/508 reboot. This can be used if you are having minor problems with software etc.. I used this today on a customers 501 that was displaying the same symptoms in this earlier post >http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=8135 and it seemed to really help. WARNING!!!!, THIS WILL CAUSE YOUR HARDRIVE TO ERASE ALL RECORDED PROGRAMS, SO USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!!

From the "Diagnostics" screen:
In succession press the INFO button, the RIGHT ARROW,
then the LEFT ARROW.
That should take you to a screen labeled "Memory Dump
and Device Status".

While in the "Memory Dump" screen:
Press the STOP button on the remote.

Then pull the AC power cord, wait a second or two,
then replace it.
