I am using the Philips DSR704 receiver. Here is my problem...
I get the 'welcome. power up' message. Then, I get pass the 'aquiring setelite'. After this, I am able to select and view any program. However, after about 2 to 6 minutes, the receiver goes back to either the 'blue screen' or the 'welcome. power up' screen.
Please advice on how to fix this problem

About the only solution that I know of is to send it to a company called Weaknees. It's expensive but they do good work. The prices for various repairs are on their web site. If you don't have any other problems order the specific tuner replacement. If you have other problems, you might want to go for their "general fix" solution.
the power supply is bad. I had to same problem with mine after a power outage. Luckily I had a spare TIVO series 2 receiver with an identical power supply. Popped it in the busted TIVO and I am back in business.
As far as I know, you can't, but I have a different solution.
These units don't need to call in, unless you order PPV. However, to get past that first "guided setup" call, which is nothing more than a test call, I'd recommend just taking it to a friends house to make the test call.
After that, you'll have to put up with the nag messages about not making a call, or hack the unit to make it not want to make a call at all.
Check the satellite signal strength on different transponders. On mine, 16 ands 17 are intermittent as are a number in the 20s but only on satellite 2 (even if you switch the cables). It's probably a bad 2nd tuner.
The only fix I've found is to repeat the "guided setup" and tell it you have only one cable coming in. That will take tuner2 out of the loop.
It's most likely the drive. You can buy preconfigured kits or buy the software and hard drive and do it yourself.
You can send it out to CCS in Indiana and they'll test/repair what is necessary (if they can). Some of these units are very old and they aren't repairable, but they do their best and are very quick on turn around times.
