    It is doing the same thing that the VS Ultra does once in a blue moon but they have a fail fix (mainpgm) for that receiver, I have not seen a mainpgm for the VS Platinum. It will not take any fix at all the display gives you all sorts of different shaped displays and the remote will not do anything. The whole time trying to load with the null cable.. I have heard of trying to hook it to a working platinum and transferring data but I am afraid of pooching my buddies platinum.. any ideas?

Must be a failed upgrade or faulty firmware.
try installing the factory default mainpg.pgm using your rs232 port.

what code is it showing?
