Question about Directv Plus DVR DTV Receiver / 100-Hours Video Recorder

Open Question

DirecTV DVR+ - R15-100 - No blue lights, no working buttons...and

I have a DTV+ R15-100 DVR and came home to a blue LCD screen. It seems the receiver crapped out. I am a FCC licensed service engineer and would like to see if I could obtain a "service" manual for this model. I have all the necessary equipment here at home and did some basic component checks and everything looked ok on the power board. No signs of trace lift, burn marks, popped caps, or resistor scorch at all. I unplugged the SATA HDD power cable and noticed the fan starting to resist and it sounded like a relay problem on the PB. If anyone has a service manual or schematic, I would pay to get a copy.

Tnx

    I have the same issue. I was told that for $5.99 direct tv has a equipment plan. I just started the plan but I have to wait beyond 30 days to use it against my box. Of course I was hush hush about my current issue.

SOURCE: DirecTv DVR Sensor not working

Sat on the phone with direct tv for about an hour.
we were unable to come up with any solution useing codes and reset option. The one thing that might help with your remote:
try pressing the select and mute button together untill the light blinks at the top. Then push 0001 or try 00001
Make sure to point the remote at the receiver.
This did not work for me and they sent me a new reciever.
They of course tried to charge me for the full price of the reciever which they will most certantly try with you.
It souds like you problem started happeing after the last upgrade which is when my problem started happening.
I gave them a little bit of attitude when they tried to charge me for a new receiver stateing that it was ther new upgrade that caused the problem and that if I had to pay for a new reciever I was gonna cancel with them and go with dishnetwork.
(they sent me a new receiver free of charge in 2 days)
They should have been willing to do this whithout any argument but they are trying to get money wherever thay can. Seems pretty unfair cosidering that you can get all this stuff for free when you first sign up.
Also dont let them tell you that it is the remote sensor. I went back and forth with this guy trying to explain to him that my remote worked fine with other devices includeing my other DVR.
He finnally agreed that it was the DVR sensor.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: my r-10 (dtv) dvr won't come out of starting up screen.

Try unplugging it from it's power source for ten seconds, then plug it back in. If it doesn't find its way out of the start up screen after 5 minutes, it might be time to replace it.

SOURCE: My Directv DVR receiver will not stay on it is blinking yellow??

Unplug it from the power for about 30 minutes and then try again. If it still doesn't work I would call DirecTV and discuss getting it replaced.

SOURCE: I have a new LG HDTV. When first on the remote not responding.

Take the TV back.It should be under warranty.
LG/Zenith has had alot of problems with there TV's. Buy an extended warranty if you can. It will pay for itself.

I have a blue light and an orange but my tv will not come on


If you are referring to an R15 (the big box in the picture with your post), there should be 3 blue lights on the front of the DVR: one to the far left (power), a big circle in the middle, and one on the right indicating the resolution the DVR is currently trying to send to the TV. The orange light indicates that something is being recorded; either a show or something from DTV like channel listings. The orange light has nothing to do with your TV but may indicate that the DVR is downloading setup information.

As for turning your TV on, when you first get DTV, the DVR remote does not know how to talk to your TV set, only the DVR, so you have to teach the remote to talk to your TV. To do that, turn your TV on with the remote that came with it (or the on/off switch on the TV if you're a dinosaur like me) and change the TV input to whatever input the DVR is attached to - usually HDMI or Component. If you see something (a TV show, a guide, a DirecTV logo, etc.) you're in the right place. Now hit the Menu button on the DTV remote and you'll see a menu on the left that includes "Setup". Use the arrow buttons on the DTV remote to move to Setup, press Select, and then select Program Remote. Follow those instructions carefully, step by step, and you should be all set. (Caveat: I am working from memory so the exact wording might not match and I might have missed a menu level. If so, I apologize.)

Auria eq5588, cannot find code for DTV.


Auria is not even in the menu here so I had to select DirecTV DVR DTV. Someone needs to keep up with the brands. Anyway, the DTV codes for the Auria EQ5588 are: 11423, 10017,11265, 10178, 10856,11178 These are the codes. Mine worked with the first one.

My user guide refers to 'MyVOD' but it never shows up on any screen. It is the Directv Plus DVR DTV receiver.


VOD (Video on Demand) is selectable TV, films etc. So if you haven't used this service it won't show up on your viewing menu. You also need the correct receiver. Have a look at these links for further info.

R15 DVR locked in record


2 months ago my R15-500 stopped working. The "Record"(yellow) light was dim on the front of the DVR and a lightly audible clicking noise could be heard from inside the DVR. So I searched the internet and found this FIXYA site. I disassembled the DVR as instructed and removed the power board. Sure enough the Capacitors were bulging on top. I replaced all of the capacitors on the power supply output, I think 6 altogether. I reassembled the unit and it worked great.

How do I know if my Directv HR22-100 HD receiver is dead?


one last thing you can do, if it doesnt work the dvr is dead. reset the dvr and wait for the hello screen and then the screen will go black. when it turns black, hold the down arrow (on the front of the dvr) and the record button for at least 5 secs. this will re-format the hard drive. if it doesnt work the dvr is dead
