Question about Hughes HDVR2 with 105 Hrs DirecTV DTV Receiver
The welcome screen has been stuck like this for 6 days. I have tried unplugging it and unhooking all the cables, but nothing works. I can't get past this frozen screen. Help!!
Direct TV has been working on numerous software issues. Some patches have been downloaded for TiVo that in some cases have caused problems. In your case, it is more possibly an indication that the hard drive is not running and you have a possible hardware failure. When you rebooted and became stuck on the "welcome, powering up screen", it could be an indication of a software glitch or a hard drive failure. I would go with a hard drive failure. Since this is a Hughes Receiver like mine and you own it, you could try a drive swap with another TiVo drive out of a like receiver. If one is not available, you may have to purchase one. Pre-configured and initialized drives are available from www.weaknees.com. I have no interest in them, but that is where I buy Tivo pre-configured Hard Drives from. You can get replacement or upgrade Maxtor Drives preconfigured from them for this specific brand and model of TiVo DVR. A drive swap would be cheaper troubleshooting. There is also a possibility of a problem with the built-in IDE controller or the power supply on your receiver which can't be determined until you do swap out with a Known Good Drive to eliminate a hard drive problem. If you are able to swap it out and If the good drive works, then your old one has corrupted data and would need to be re-initialiaed and reloaded. If it is an older smaller (35 hour) drive, you would be better off with a new replacment since the loading is a somewhat lengthy process and must be done on a computer running the Linux Operating System.

I found unplugging it helped. Problem with that is that sometimes it deletes newly recorded shows.
