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!

My dtv recorder has no power to it

Power supply failure, probably due to faulty capacitors. It should be fixable by a competent repairer.

My Directv H21-200 will not power on. Even after leaving it unplugged for a while. I need to know if there is a fix or if it's fried.

Take the unit aparts,the power fuse at near the a/c power supply cord.Check for the power fuse.If the power fuse it is dead,replaced it,u have a 70%-80% the unit will work again.If the unit power fuse it is good.Than the unit it is fried,it could be anythings are dead on the unit PCB board,now u must have great electronic skills and troubleshooting skills to find out where it is and replaced it electronic parts on the unit PCB board.Require alot of skills at this points.Not worth the effort.It time to buy a new one.

I think the transformer for the dct6200 is in the cable box... thats why there is no "box" on the power cord...
sadley that means the damage may be in the cable box and much harder to replace than if the transformer had been on the cord.

can you call the cable company and have them replace them?

Thomson DTI2300 set top box stopped working

If there are no lights and no sound, then you've lost power.
I expect you've checked the fuse? If not go ahead!
Assuming that the fuse is ok, the next step is to check the power board in the unit. The unit pulls apart by un-doing 2 screws; 1 on the bottom and 1 on the top centre of the rear plate. The innards pull out, but you must pull the top panel away from the second screw I mentioned as you pull it out.
Inside the bow you'll find the power board (where the power lead goes to). You're looking for bulging or leaking capacitors; this is a comman failure on these units. They are pennies to buy and easy to replace if you can wield a soldering iron. If you have a handy friend he/she will find it easy.
