If something else works in the outlet that reciever is plugged in to, the reciever is fried. Try to charge your phone or plug in a clock where the reciever is. Outlet might be connected to a light switch, for a lamp or something. If you have a light switch you don't what it does, this might be it. Hope it helps.

How to get multiple issues resolved with service from Xfinity?


Let the CSR on the phone know you have more than 1 issue. This does not change the time the tech has to be at your home but does let him/her an idea where to start looking when they get there. Your service ends when the issues are resolved or you will be given another date to complete the work if they have to do a large repair like rewire your home.

I would like a replacement router as this one keeps turning its self off up tofour times a dayp tivo


Are you certain that it's the router that's at fault? Is it wireless or wired? What about your wall power?: Does it fluctuate too much?

If wall power is the true culprit, you may find that a UPS ("Unlimited Power Supply") proves quite useful. Basically, a UPS is a sophisticated battery solution--the units incorporate powerful lead-acid batteries--the same type of batteries as those used for starting autos--merely smaller and less powerful.

A surge protector can't bump up power--a UPS may, though--it attempts to "smooth" current--putting less stress upon devices-- perhaps making them last better and longer.

In the event of a power emergency, UPSes may continue to power your TV/TiVo and your router/modem (perhaps located in another room). At least for a few minutes, you may be able to obtain news and weather. Given that your smartphone or tablet is dead, a UPS certainly may keep it alive. (UPSes do "beep" when running on battery power.)

I've noted at stores that your TiVo proves quite expensive. The UPS concept has been invoked widely--practically since the beginning--in business/enterprise, educational, and government computing. Thus, the UPS proves out now as a better home theater solution.

Where your router is, your modem likely is nearby: Plug it into a UPS, as well. Don't get rid of your surge-protector!: Those will remain useful. Certainly, you may plug it into a UPS--if you need more sockets. (Naturally, every such solution has its limits.)

UPS batteries likely will last several years: Generally, DIY replacement proves relatively easy. A great many online vendors service battery customers--replacement batteries at stores now are proving increasingly more available, too. Many differing "brands" often prove compatible.

One fault of a UPS: It's yet another "vampire current" in your home. When you leave your home or sleep, you may switch off the UPS--that ends that current drain. When leaving for vacation, you may then switch it off and unplug it--then, all connected devices are protected from lightning surges while you're away!

Lightning damage proves more common than most Americans believe. Nothing, save perhaps unplugging, can prevent damage from a direct lightning hit. In most circumstances, I do believe that a UPS will protect better then than surge protectors. My brother's TV was damaged by a lightning surge during a crazy weather event--he used a good surge protector, too: My stuff never has been damaged by lightning surges, though. I live nearby.

Needless to say, I've been a big fan of the UPS for a long time!

I was given a Dedicated Micros sprite 2 without a power lead do i need one or can i connect to the computer as a power supply


would need more info as the system needs it's own psu.... are you meaning the power plug 3 pin type that fits into the psu or the 8 pin that fits to the system (would not try that with the 8pin)
3 pin is just standard kettle lead.

Dish ViP622 keeps crashing - on 6th unit from Dish network


the 622 receivers are very sensitive to static electricity build up, if you have been through more than two receivers i would demand having a technician come to your home to check grounding of your dish system, while he is there he will also check the grounding where you plug the receivers in, i suggest not using any surge protectors/power strips and, as debmaldo did, try different outlets, if you have a very high end surge protector, it should be okay but for troubleshooting purposes try a different wall receptacle
