    My power was out for almost 3 days, and now I am having trouble with my DVR reciever. My regular reciever booted fine, but my DVR says 'boot" "HAL2".



    What should I do?



    I tried unplugging it for a few min. and then trying again, but that did not work.

Call the cable company and ask them to reauthorize your equipment. if the power goes out when your box is downloading, it always cause a problem

Motorola dvr dct6412 locked channels


Check with your provider to ensure that you are in expanded services, or limited. Because being on limited services the box will lock you out of those channels. If you are in billing for those services and you checked the batteries on your remote and they are good and you get a solid red blink when you change channels not a double blink (indicating that your batteries are dying), Then try power cycling your DVR by, removing the power supply and waiting 3sec then plug it back in. Your box should shut off, turn itself back on, then go into the load screen, then, once the load screen display shows on your tv and on box display, wait for your box to completely load (don't touch nothing until the correct time shows up, meaning that it has completed the load process) Once the process is complete turn box back on and you should have you guide back up and (No Data) on your program schedule(Don't Worry!!) it will populate, with 15-20 mins.

Now try to ch. up and down and see if that fixed the problem. also make sure nothing is blocking the sensor. If all else fails and you changed the battery, called your cable provider and request a box swap, (be sure to watch all your recorded shows because they go bye, bye with the cable guy!)

I have an Apex Digital TV connected to a DirecTV DVR Plus receiver. Since the digital conversion, the volume is totally messed up. Most of the time, it is low except with most commercials which are...


Have you tried different sources? DVD or antenna? If it's low on either of these (antenna would be the better test because of the commercials) then it's the TV. If it's fine then ditch the dish and go with real cable TV, you will be happier anyway. Most digital TV's can use digital cable without the box if you don't use premium channels.

Directv dvr will not power on. The record light


Unplug the DVR for about 20 minutes and then plug it back in. If that doesn't work its probably time to contact DTV for a replacement.

Time Warner has to unlock it. It is an addresable box so it has to be registered on their network in order to work.

Philips 32pt television screen format off center, to the left


For me it was the cable box settings...

I'm not a tech person, so take this for what its worth. I had the same problem with my Vizio and my Time Warner Cable HD/DVR box using the HDMI cord connection. HD channels were always fine, and non HD channels were fine until I went to an HD channel and back. When switching back, the non-HD channels would be shifted to the left as you describe. After much back and forth with both Vizio and Time Warner (each saying its caused by the other), I stumbled across the following fix...

I went into the cable box (scientific atlanta 8300) "settings", under "display," under "output resolution." There was a list including 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, and "auto select." I unchecked both 480 options and left 720 and 1080 checked. Problem solved. The other "Display" menu settings are as follows: Picture Size = Stretch, Aspect Ratio = 16x9.

Hope this helps.
