When the backup battery goes dead you loose the ID number.

If you have lost your receiver ID number you will need a new main board.
Check the receiver number in the status screen. If it matches the UA number on the back sticker you are ok, if not the only solution is replacing the main board. ATSelectronics.com still had some boards when I last checked. But when they run out were all screwed.
Motorola didn't make any provisions for renewing the ID number.
That really sucks motorola ;-(

Altech pvr 6690 It is unable to initiate the harddisk anymore after power outage


It is likely the device was damaged by the power surge when power was restored, this is for sure if it was connected to surge protector. Most power suppliers will pay for damage from this type of power outage. Contact them and ask.

Power outage. Lost all programs and not able to record.


Hi jollycay there is something else you can look at, youwant to press the Menu button and then press the numbers 6-1-3. It will takeyou to System Info 1, you will need to see if field F is green and if so I do apologizefor the loss of the recordings due to we have no way of recovering them. If thebox is not green please call in so we can take further action.

DSR 922- to begin with it wouldn't shut off, no function will work with the remote, unplugged it and replugged it and now there is nothing but the inspirational channel on G3 217. H20


IF the receiver lost its sat settings you had, you best check the internal battery. the lithium battery should be 3.70 volts...if its dead you need to replace it, without interupting the power source...this will also cause you to lose your unit ID number. then you won't be able to subcribe to programming...the 922 can be repaired if the battery dies.

Lost power for one second and now cannot get my caller ID to work


unplug the telephone cable from the back of the receiver and plug it a basic telephone to check if there is a dial tone. if there is a dial tone restart the receiver without the the telephone line plugged in. after it loads and u have a picture, plug in the telephone line. call the home to check. if its not working the modem in the receiver has gone bad.

When that happens its most likley you had a power outage and the box reset.  Well kinda reset but not all the way.  You can unplug the power and wait about 10sec and plug it back in and wait a few min to a few hours, and If that doesn't work get a new box.

My SIR-S4040R no longer turns on..


If the unit doesn't power on at all, no fan spinning and no power light, then it's either your power supply, and/or motherboard. Your hard drive could be damaged as well. You can find power supplies by googling tivo power supplies.

You may be better off sending out the unit for testing/repair. I recommend CCS in Indiana. Fast, and friendly service, used them many times. You will need to lose anything that was on the unit (settings, season passes and recordings) to ensure the drive is fully functional.
