Will not boot- Sits at searching for sat forever and does not get past this point

I had this same issue recently. Unplug the receiver, for approx 30 seconds and after you plug it back in, it should receive the signal and boot up when you turn it on.

How to read dvr messages

From the R10 user's manual:

From time to time DIRECTV may send you messages about updates to your service and other important notices. These messages are important, useful, and easy to find. When your DIRECTV® DVR receives a new message, a message icon ( ) appears on the channel banner and in DIRECTV Central.

To read a message:
1. From DIRECTV Central, select Messages & Setup.
2. Select Messages.
3. Select the message you want to read.

Use the CHAN DOWN button to see text that does not fit on the screen. When you are finished reading a message, select Done or Delete Message. Selecting the message icon in the channel banner will take you to your list of messages. The message list will display “No Messages” if there are no messages to read.

You can download the full user manual for your R10 here.
