Replaced the older receiver box and had Directv reactivate the card. Will probably find another one later.

My DTC 6200 converter/decoder was working fine. A few weeks ago I have disconnected it, pull the power cord out of the AC outlet, put the decoder in a safe place. Then when I finish painting, I hook...


Hello
Check out these with your Motorola converter

[1] Verify that the AC power cord is connected to the DCT*
and an AC outlet.

[2] If the DCT* is connected to a switched outlet on another
unit, verify that that unit is powered on.

[3] Press the POWER button on the DCT* front panel instead

of the remote control. The batteries in the remote control
may be depleted

[4] The DCT* may have received a software update and

may not power on while the new software is being
installed. Try again in a few minutes.
OK.

Stuck with blue light on, no display and not responding to remote control Any Ideas?


Possible failure of the main control panel, possible the processor is malfunctioning or faulty.
remove and fix back all connections and connectors.
if there is no action or response then the processor/associated circuit/mother board can be defective

My reciever is running really slow it takes 15 sec before it will do the function you asked it to


Mine did it too, same time frame. I own mine, but after 3yrs. of reliable service Dish decided I needed a card and software update which I reluctantly did.

And sure as shootin', things started too screw up. I am positive it is the software screwing the 625's up. Sometimes recording sometimes not, Slow reaction time, Showing up on the 101 channel when I turn it on, System Integrity Tests EVERYDAY !?!?! what is it a nuclear reactor ? ect....

The real question is, was it done on purpose, or was it some "bright guys" screw up ?

Either way they win, the 625's will have to be upgraded $$$

I understand some people are/were screwin around with their DVR's. But I wasn't/aint one of them.

I'm gonna check out the Cable deals come spring.

My thomson dti 6300 250gb free view box wont turn on


Emailed Topuptv and got this reply

Dear Sir/Madam,



Thank you for contacting Top Up TV.



Please note that we are currently aware of an issue affecting some Thomson DTi6300 boxes.

If your DTR will not come out of standby and is not responding to your remote control, please try the following procedures.


Step 1: Power cycle
First of all, remove the power to the box and wait 20 seconds before restoring power.
Wait while the box tries to restart and allow 2 -3 minutes for this to complete.
Try this at least twice.
If it doesn't go to the solid green light then proceed to the next step.


Step 2: Front Panel Reset

Note: This procedure will unfortunately cause you to lose all of the recordings that you have stored on the box. You will need to be able access the back of the DTR and the front panel buttons

1. Remove power to the unit by removing the power cable from the back of the DTR.
2. Wait 20 seconds and restore the power cable while holding in the standby/power on button on the front panel of the DTR.
3. Release the standby button immediately you see a light 'blip' on the DTR front display and then immediately press the following front panel arrow buttons in sequence Up>Down>Left>Right
4.The DTR will now show the Orange LED with the Green LED flashing until the format has been completed in about 60 seconds. The DTR will return to ON automatically.
5. If requested, perform a channel scan to complete the operation.


We apologise for any inconvenience caused. Our Customer Services department can also be contacted on 08444 159 159. However, please note that we are currently experiencing high call volumes and so may not be able to answer your call as quickly as we would like.

Kind Regards,
Richard

Tivo series 2 TCD540080


The green light on the left indicates that the Tivo *is* on and running.

Have you changed your TV to the correct input that the Tivo is connected to?

Remote does not work


Do the buttons on the front panel of the unit work?

If so, try doing this:

Hit the tivo button, go down to messages and setup and into to system information. Go down a few screens until you see remote code. Hold (on your remote) the tivo button and pause button for about 5 seconds. Then hit 0-9 on your remote to set the code. It's a single digit code only. You'll see your remote light flash. Now, try hitting the back button and see if your remote works. If it does, great. If it doesn't that means one or more of the following:

1) Your remote is defective
2) Your IR receiver on the unit isn't working correctly.

If #2 is the problem, you'll need to open up the unit, powered down! and make sure the thin, greyish ribbon cable in the front of the motherboard is 100% in. If it's not all the way in, it will cause issues.
