Video delays, running slow, and pixel glitches are indicators of Hard Disk Drive read and write errors. The shows you record are stored on a computer Hard Disk Drive within the DVR. If you have the original 40GB (35 hour) Western Digital Drive and it has never been replaced, it is a sure sign it is beginning to fail. You can either send it out and have it replaced or if you are electrically and mechanically inclined and want to try it yourself or have a computer genius living next door, the drive replacement is a simple process. You will need to obtain a pre loaded, pre initialized hard disk drive replacement for this Hughes DVR. You can purchase them online at www.weaknees.com. The smallest replacment is a 70 hour drive (80GB)They sell high quality pre configured Maxtor drives especially designed as replacements for DVR Drives. There are step by step instructions included with the drive. Any qualified electronics guru or computer tech should be able to replace the old drive with the new preconfiged drive. It is about a 30 minute job. Once installed and powered up the Receiver/DVR will act like it is a brand new receiver. You will have to call Directv to reauthorize your receiver again. If they ask, you can explain that you had a technician replace a faulty hard drive on your owned receiver and you need to reauthorize it. You will discover this when you power up with the new drive. The new drive should fix the delay problem. You will also need to set up your remote for your TV through the Remote setup menu again unless you remember the code (I can't). When you access the remote setup, the instructions will be displayed on the screen. Just scroll down to your brand of TV and input the different codes one at a time until you find one that works.

My remote does not work, is there a test I can do or setting o My nikon 80


Set the camera's shooting mode to one of the remote modes. Quick-response remote fires the shutter when you press the button on the remote. Delayed remote gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back before firing the shutter.

Press and hold the shooting mode button (just to the right of the control panel on the top of the camera, marked with overlapping rectangles) and turn the main command dial (on the back) to cycle through the different shooting modes. The quick-response remote mode is represented by an icon of the remote control. The delayed remote mode is represented by the remote icon and the self-timer icon.

I want to use a wireless remote with my Nikon D80 but I can't remember what I need to do to use it


Set the release mode to one of the remote modes. The quick-response remote mode fires the shutter when you press the button on the remote. The delayed remote mode gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back before firing the shutter.

To set the release mode, press and hold the release mode button (overlapping rectangles) and turn the main command dial on the back of the camera. The quick-response remote mode is denoted by the icon of the remote control. The delayed remote mode display both the remote icon and the one-handed clock icon.

How do I set it up on my Nikon D60 to use this remote?


I assume you're referring to the ML-L3 infrared remote?

Select Release Mode from the Quick settings display. Select Quick-response remote. This will make the camera take a picture when you press the button on the remote. Well, almost. The same focusing and exposure metering delays occur as if you'd pressed the shutter release button.

You can also use the Delayed remote mode for group pictures. This gives you two seconds to hide your hand behind your back before the camera takes the picture.

By default the D60 will time out after one minute if you don't press the button on the remote. Custom Setting #17 allows you to set a longer interval.

I love my bc796d and i have had it for about 4 years? My question is concerning the delay when scanning channels and i always keep it on 4 second delay. I would like to have it delay longer and thats where...


Setting DELAY for All Search Ranges
You can set the scanner to have a delay after the end of a transmission before searching
resumes. This slows searching, but helps you prevent missing replies on a frequency.
1:SERVICE OPTION → :CHAIN SEARCH → 3:DELAY
1:NONE
The delay is turned off.
2:1 SECOND
The delay time is 1 second.
3:2 SECONDS
The delay time is 2 seconds.
4:4 SECONDS
The delay time is 4 seconds.
28
5:INFINITE
When the scanner stops on a transmission, you must press RSM to resume
searching.
6: -2 SECONDS
The scanner only stops on transmissions for 2 seconds, then automatically
resumes. To hold on the transmission, press /HOLD during the 2-second pause.
7: -5 SECONDS
The scanner only stops on transmissions for 5 seconds, then automatically
resumes. To hold on the transmission, press /HOLD during the 5-second pause.
8: -10 SECONDS
The scanner only stops on transmissions for 10 seconds, then automatically
resumes. To hold on the transmission, press /HOLD during the 10-second pause.

Need help using the wireless cable release


I assume you're refering to the ML-L3 wireless remote control.

Change the shooting mode on the camera by holding down the shooting mode button and turning the main command dial. You want either delayed remote or quick-response remote. The quick-response remote fires the shutter as soon as you press the button on the remote, the delayed remote gives you two seconds to hide your hand behind your back before the camera fires.

Why isn't my remote firing my camera?


Do you have the shooting mode set to one of the remote modes? If you don't, the camera will completely ignore the ML-L3 remote.

Press the shooting mode button and turn the command dial to either the Quick-response remote or Delayed remote mode. The Quick-response mode fires the camera as soon as you press the button on the remote. The Delayed mode gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back before the camera fires.

The remote for the hughes sd-dvr40 will only change the tv chanel even with the button on the remote in the sat. mode it will not change the sat. rec. chanels


I fixed it by reprograming the remote. This is how! Point the remote away from the DVR and press and hold the TV power button and the Directv button on the remote at the same time until the red light at the end of the remote comes on and stays on when you release the buttons. Then press the thumbs down button on the remote (3) three times and press enter on the remote. This corrected my problem which set the remote as a new remote. You will have to reporgam your TV code into the remote to operate the volume on your TV .

Synch problems on Philips machines can be caused by the video output setting.

Usually there are 3 options for video output:
  • PAL
  • NTSC
  • AUTO
PAL & NTSC force playback in that setting, regardless of DVD format, and sometimes cause a time delay in the conversion.

Try changing this option to AUTO. IF you have a modern TV, it should allow both PAL & NTSC playback.

Hughes SD DVR40 suddenly "reboots"


It's most likely your hard drive. If it happens at the same point in the recording, or if you can delete a program and then record something else and it does it again, it is hitting a bad spot on the hard drive. Your best option is to replace the hard drive and you should be good to go.
