SOURCE: Hughes SD-DVR40 has video delays
Video delays, running slow, and pixel glitches are indicators of Hard Disk Drive read and write errors. The shows you record are stored on a computer Hard Disk Drive within the DVR. If you have the original 40GB (35 hour) Western Digital Drive and it has never been replaced, it is a sure sign it is beginning to fail. You can either send it out and have it replaced or if you are electrically and mechanically inclined and want to try it yourself or have a computer genius living next door, the drive replacement is a simple process. You will need to obtain a pre loaded, pre initialized hard disk drive replacement for this Hughes DVR. You can purchase them online at www.weaknees.com. The smallest replacment is a 70 hour drive (80GB)They sell high quality pre configured Maxtor drives especially designed as replacements for DVR Drives. There are step by step instructions included with the drive. Any qualified electronics guru or computer tech should be able to replace the old drive with the new preconfiged drive. It is about a 30 minute job. Once installed and powered up the Receiver/DVR will act like it is a brand new receiver. You will have to call Directv to reauthorize your receiver again. If they ask, you can explain that you had a technician replace a faulty hard drive on your owned receiver and you need to reauthorize it. You will discover this when you power up with the new drive. The new drive should fix the delay problem. You will also need to set up your remote for your TV through the Remote setup menu again unless you remember the code (I can't). When you access the remote setup, the instructions will be displayed on the screen. Just scroll down to your brand of TV and input the different codes one at a time until you find one that works.

I am not sure if this is going to help or work for you but it worked for me. My amp D714 crackled a bit and then switched off completely. It would not power on again. I checked the fuses and tried the tone-standby buttons but that did not work. After a bit of searching on the web I thought I had lost my amp for good so I thought I would experiment a bit considering it's dead already. I opened up the top cover and started looking for dry joints. Then I came across the battery. It is located on the main upright circuit board. It says "Main" on it. The battery is a black circular battery that has 5.5v written on it. It is located in the middle of the board about 5cm from the front of the amp. With my experience with computers I decided to short out the battery. I did this by shorting out the two solders on the opposite side of the battery (other side of the board where all the joints are). I just held a flat screw driver on it for a few seconds. To my surprise I plugged the power back in and it just switched on. For now I am just running the tuner with all the speakers plugged in and all is working so far. I will see how long it last.
Hope this helps.
