Question about Samsung SIR-S4120R DirecTV / TiVo DTV Receiver

Open Question

SIR 4120R TivoDTV Receiver

I have lost my regular receiver to lightning and had an old Samsung sitting in the garage. Since I was not able to make it work originally I* just left it there. Now that I need it and connected it back up I remembered what the problem was After a few hours of use and at times after as little as 10 minutes the receiver advises that it lost satellite signal and stops working. Checking the setup I find that it no longer sees the odd transponders. It does see most even transponders. The antenna and LNB's are good. I have checked them with my second receiver. Is there a way to trouble shoot this problem??

SOURCE: receiver loses time

This receiver can be set up to grab the time from whatever channel you're watching. Is it possible that one of those channels has their server clock set wrong.

SOURCE: Receiver on but not working

call direct tv and ask for a reset. When you do not use your receiver leave it on and connecetd or it will not receive updates and will forget what it once knew. Actually I think you can use the automated system and use (I think...not sure) code 712 to reset all your receivers with out waiting for help.

I had a lightening strike at my home. Since then, the garage door does not function with wall switch or remotes. when i press the switch, light comes ON on the door opener and i hear a click but nothing...


Well, I don't think that disconnecting the garage door from the garage door opener would affect function.

The lightning strike could have destroyed the circuitry inside the garage door opener, seeing that it won't operate with the wall switch or remotes.

It's likely that a board was fried by the lightning which would render the garage door inoperable.

Usually in most cases the tv remote will run the dish receiver properly. Try getting your dish receiver remote to work the tv, by typing codes for that model number of the remote.

Lightning Damage


There are millions upon millions of electronics that could have been fried.  If you wanted to try and frankenstein with other broken receivers from ebay you might be able to fix it.   Also check to make sure there aren't any fuses and I recommend a surge protector.
