Turning receiver on/off manually

Started a couple of days ago, I can no longer turn DVR receivers on or off by pushing the power button.  The remotes will do it fine.  Thanks.

Re: Turning receiver on/off manually

You only have 1 DVR, the rest are STBs (set top boxes). 

 

I'd do a hard reboot by unplug/plug in power after 30 seconds. This will fix many DVR problems, let us know if it worked, good luck. Smiley Wink

Re: Turning receiver on/off manually

Usually when I have this problem I just press another button on the front panel(such as the menu button). After pressing it, it would allow me to then to turn it off by the power button. It's an odd occurance.

You're welcome, just remember anything else seems funny, try a reboot first.

 

Personally I reboot the DVR weekly to speed it up and forestall many other problems from occuring. Smiley Wink

I reboot mine once a month after all it is running Windows CE.

Re: Turning receiver on/off manually

I have a wireless STB and I think my DVR is a VIP-1225. Either way, they can't seem to go much above 600-700 hours without needing to reboot. For some odd reason, my DVR gets that blue "HDMI not found...here a few ways to fix it" screen and rebooting seems to fix that.
