Question about Philips DIRECTV R15
Just bought a Directv R15 receiver. It powers on, displays the first "Hello" screen, then the "just a few more minutes" screen, then blacks out and reboots. I have tried the reset button, unplugging it and leaving it unplugged, and even disconnecting the hard drive inside it. Still same problem.
Jay .. if you still have the receiver. heres what you do. reset the receiver and when the blue screen comes up saying "Hello your directv receiver is starting up" On your remote type in 0 2 4 6 8 .. then it should go to a screen saying "new software found" . Let it download the update.. That should fix the issue .. However if it doesn't then it could be the hard drive. The pcb board on them usually fries.. but that can be ordered too... let me know how this works... you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
