DVR crashing other wired receivers

DVR crashing other wired receivers

I've started having issues with my boxes today.  After playing around with it, I figured out that my two wired, non-DVR receivers are crashing whenever they try to connect to the DVR receiver.  If I unplug the DVR box, my receivers work fine.  As soon as I plug in the DVR receive and it is fully on, the other boxes continually reboot until I unplug the DVR box again.


Interestingly, my wireless box doesn't seem to have a problem.  I've checked all of the connections to make sure they are tight.  My DVR and Wireless are newer boxes and my other two boxes are older.

Re: DVR crashing other wired receivers

I would try this:


1) Unplug all receivers from power including the DVR.

2) Unplug the AT&T router from power.

3) Plug the router back in and let it come up completely (all green lights)

4) Plug in the DVR and let it come up until you have a picture on the TV connected to it

5) Plug in the remainder of the receivers.


Test for proper operation.

Re: DVR crashing other wired receivers

I think it was due to my dvr being full.  Deleted a bunch of recordings and all is ok now.
