This has been discussed before under this thread (http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=83&topicid=93530&page_no=1#553367), but my PVR is still not working properly. It seems I just had a temporary fix.

Ever since I received the DishTV update over the air in November 2011, I have had a problem where (most days) I switch on the PVR and there is no video.

The only way to fix it is to hold down the power button on the front of the PVR to do a reboot. The PVR is then fixed until the next day.

Does anyone else have this issue and know of a fix?

I'm still communicating with DishTV support but I think they are running out of things for me to try now. Each time I try something, I have to wait until the next day to see if it has worked.

DishTV support have said they believe there is an issue in the software that causes the picture to not show. They are working on a fix.

Looks like a new version has been updated over the air. It is now on A3UST18_20_0125 dated May 25 2012.

Ever since this update the unit now powers itself completely off (not in standby mode, but all off) when it is not ready to record. It now starts itself up with a cold start (Init then Boot) about 20 minutes before any recording time that is set. Or if I press the Power button on the remote.

I guess this was the only way they could fix the problems like the one I mentioned above. The good news is that it now does seem to work quite well. It is a bit of an inconvenience having to wait for it to power up when I want to watch something, but not a major issue.

They just got this update in time. I was very close to taking it back to JBHiFi. But now I'll keep it. :-)
