    It may be awful late, and maybe you aren't using the receiver any more (I am!), but there's a company called Weaknees that will repair and even upgrade the unit. It's pricey, but since DirecTV's own DVR is sucky, and the brand new HD DirecTV Tivo is slow in rolling out, you might want to try them for a solution. Their repair rates are listed on their web site.

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.

Owners manual & remote


I just downloaded the manual for the DSR704 (except fo the inside of the front cover which I now need).

I went to directv.com/manuals. It gave a list of the manufacturers of their recorders. Choose Phillips and then select the DSR704. It was very easy once knew where to go. Good luck.

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.

Picture on DSR704 gets 'blocky', loose audio at the same time


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.

Stuck at "Welcome Powering UP"


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.
