If you are not getting any power to the box, then the power supply may need to be changed.

Off air with SIR TS160

Hi druggist , I recently bought a Samsung SIR TS 160 unit from the Goodwill for $14.99 (no remote though) and I was very sceptical as to whether it would work but I thought what the hell it's only 15 bucks .Anyway to my surprise it works great and I do not and never have subscribed to Direct TV , I don't even have a satellite dish (am using an indoor antenae) and I get about 19 TV channels 10 of which are HDor DTV .Granted occasionally I have to move the antenae around a bit but not much . I also took my box to my friends house and he has a rooftop/outdoor antenae and there were no problems whatsoever .
I doubt Direct TV can deactivate your box in anyway ,especially for off-air programs.
Good Luck
ps my TV does not have a HD tuner either.

Receiver will not respond from imputs from the TS160 remote

You are probably using a non-oem remote or one that is from another receiver, not the one that originaly came with the unit.

You should try to get one with the factory remote and not try to save a few bucks.

Maybe a neighbor has complete unit you could get for a reasonable price.
