My satellite box shows to be overheating every time I turn it on. It has never done this before. Can someone please explain?

Your cooling may have failed.you may have to much stuff around the reciever blocking the vents .it may just be a, piece of junk and need replaced

What model DVR/Receiver?
In the System Information display (press and hold the remote's INFO button for several seconds), you should be able to see the internal temperature. What does it say?

First make sure that your receiver is in a well ventilated area. Not ontop of your tv, or your tv sitting directly ontop of it. Keep your receiver well dusted, and make sure there is no debris in the ventilation fan. In order for a replacement you'll have to verify that the receiver is in a well ventilated area, and verify that this is a reoccuring issue, and it interrupts your live video continuously.
Hope this helps!

what model of receiver do you have. look for the model number inside the access card door..
Perhaps the fan died...
Call DirecTV to request a replacement Receiver/DVR. It's free if you have their Equipment Protection Plan, or within 90-days of installation. Otherwise ~$20 for shipping. Or ~$50 to have a tech come replace it for you.

Correct, the H20-600 to be precise. While the HR20s do run warmer than newer models, they are not known to overheat.
