Try unplugging it from it's power source for ten seconds, then plug it back in. If it doesn't find its way out of the start up screen after 5 minutes, it might be time to replace it.

I have a blue light and an orange but my tv will not come on


If you are referring to an R15 (the big box in the picture with your post), there should be 3 blue lights on the front of the DVR: one to the far left (power), a big circle in the middle, and one on the right indicating the resolution the DVR is currently trying to send to the TV. The orange light indicates that something is being recorded; either a show or something from DTV like channel listings. The orange light has nothing to do with your TV but may indicate that the DVR is downloading setup information.

As for turning your TV on, when you first get DTV, the DVR remote does not know how to talk to your TV set, only the DVR, so you have to teach the remote to talk to your TV. To do that, turn your TV on with the remote that came with it (or the on/off switch on the TV if you're a dinosaur like me) and change the TV input to whatever input the DVR is attached to - usually HDMI or Component. If you see something (a TV show, a guide, a DirecTV logo, etc.) you're in the right place. Now hit the Menu button on the DTV remote and you'll see a menu on the left that includes "Setup". Use the arrow buttons on the DTV remote to move to Setup, press Select, and then select Program Remote. Follow those instructions carefully, step by step, and you should be all set. (Caveat: I am working from memory so the exact wording might not match and I might have missed a menu level. If so, I apologize.)

It says no info on the programs I want to record and won't record them. The guide also shows no info in those areas.


Janette578,

Make sure the receiver is powered off each night so it can receive updates through the satellite to the guide.

You can force a guide download by unplugging the receiver for 10 seconds and plugging it back in. If that doesn't work, you can run a check switch test from Menu > System Setup > Installation > Point Dish > Check Switch > Test. Let it finish, then exit out of the menu and let it acquire signal and download the guide.

If you have any other questions, or need further assistance, let me know!

The receiver will shut off and come back on and some times will not come back on for a bit?


Have you tried unplugging the receiver from the electrical outlet for 10 seconds and plugging back into the outlet? This will cause the receiver to reboot. Give this a try and if it continues to power off/on, you may need to replace the receiver. You can call 1-800-333-3474 for further trouble shooting.

Auria eq5588, cannot find code for DTV.


Auria is not even in the menu here so I had to select DirecTV DVR DTV. Someone needs to keep up with the brands. Anyway, the DTV codes for the Auria EQ5588 are: 11423, 10017,11265, 10178, 10856,11178 These are the codes. Mine worked with the first one.

Directv dvr will not power on. The record light


Unplug the DVR for about 20 minutes and then plug it back in. If that doesn't work its probably time to contact DTV for a replacement.
