SOURCE: Unable to record show on the DVR

Try a hard reboot. Hold the power button on the box till it turns itself off. It will turn itself back on. After restarting try to record live tv. If you can't watch recorded shows either your harddrive may be fried. After thought, a $20 tv tuner card from e-bay for your computer, you could record them to your desktop.

SOURCE: DVR won't set a timer to record a show

I have never encountered this but if you have enabled the standby and it still does not work you will need a new receiver. The feature was to enable a screen saver so that televisions screens would not be etched if it were left on and you fell asleep. My suspicion is that the DVR hard drive is corrupt giving you this false message.
Thanks for using Fix Ya.

SOURCE: dvr not responding

There was a software update early this morning which caused your recvr to go to recovery mode until it downloads the new software which takes about 4 hours. Once this is done you should be just fine!

SOURCE: my speco dvr says no disk, how did this happen.

Sounds like you have a bad harddrive which is what DVR's usually record their data to. You need to take it in to get it fixed or if you can do it yourself, find out what kind of drive it has, e.g. the size of it, the interface (IDE or SATA) and then purchase one close to the same size and replace it.

Open The Case and inside you will see a battery, silver disk, remove it for 5 mins and reinstall it, power up the DVR and it should be set to factory defaults, the factory default for Speco DVR's is 1234
