I have an HR24 which displayed on the bottom of my HD TV the following: "Not Subscribed" Press Select. (721); Receiver: (my receiver number); and Card: (my card number).

Funny thing; the program was active above the message. The Exit button would not remove the message. To remove the message, I had to change channels and go back to the program which had the message. The channel was Fox News HD, ch 360. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Pull power plug, wait 5 minutes and re power. Also can hit the reset button behind the trap door on the right.
If you are going the reset a receiver that is not the way to do it. As certain processes need to shut down, you should perform a menu reset to reset the receiver. If you want to pull the power cord, perform the menu reset and when the receiver completely shuts off, pull the cord before it powers back up.

Try reauthorizing your receiver using this URL or call their 800 number:

Then reboot your receiver....

So did post 4, but all were offered in good humor, so let's try to lighten up a bit.:)

There. I fixed it for you.

I agree it is sadly predictable that the mere mention of Fox News is almost guaranteed to bring out snide comments.

I'm sick to death of those that feel the need to run down viewers of any particular channel, be it Fox News, CNN, or any other channel for that matter.

The channel/content being watched has nothing to do with the question being asked. The only possible relevance is whether the channel was one that required a separate subscription of some sort, and by mentioning it was Fox News the OP is indicating it was a standard station that everyone should be able to pull in without any special subscription.

I posted what I was watching at the time of the 721 message, because I felt it may be relevant to the problem described in my post. If the fact I was watching Fox News offended some DBSTALK members, then I apologize not for watching Fox News, but for creating a situation where there was an apparent need to ridicule my viewing choice as a substitute for providing worthwhile help and for creating friction amongst the forum members.

Fox News HD and Fox Business are not standard in every package including the one I currently subscribe to. I have not had the HR24s very long and the HD-UI 057b was loaded in January, 2012. I usually get sound advise here, and I was wondering if other members had experienced the same thing. Best wishes to all regardless of your viewing choice. Opinions are like a-holes, everyone has one.

This is a known bug. The workaround is to do exactly what you did or reset the box.

Since D* has had a burning desire to remove things lately, they should look at this. This warning should automatically be removed from the screen when the user changes channels.

I appreciate your reply to a Fox News viewer. I thought the 721 message strange. It is good it is a known problem. Is this an HD-UI problem? Thanks again for taking time to help! This saves me a call to D*. Best wishes!

On a serious note (although the humor was enjoyed) don't just pull the plug on the HR24 at will. Be sure it is OFF and not recording anything. Otherwise you risk corruption the hard drive if it happened to be writing to it.

To further elaborate on Merg's post as it is right on point, go into the menu system, go to reset, reset the receiver. As it shuts itself off, at that brief moment, pull the plug. Little risk of any hard drive activity at that point.
