Question about Hughes HR10-250 DirecTV / TiVo 200-Hours Video Recorder

1 Answer

No picture I cannot get a picture with my hughes dvr. I keep getting a message on the tv saying the dvr is warming up. It stays like that for hours. I've tried unplugging it, removing the satellite cable & reinstalling it, and even removed the card inside, but have had no luck. There's also a clicking noise going on. Please help!!

The remote for the hughes sd-dvr40 will only change the tv chanel even with the button on the remote in the sat. mode it will not change the sat. rec. chanels


I fixed it by reprograming the remote. This is how! Point the remote away from the DVR and press and hold the TV power button and the Directv button on the remote at the same time until the red light at the end of the remote comes on and stays on when you release the buttons. Then press the thumbs down button on the remote (3) three times and press enter on the remote. This corrected my problem which set the remote as a new remote. You will have to reporgam your TV code into the remote to operate the volume on your TV .

Can hughes sd-dvr 80 be used as stand-alone dvr?


not without a subscription to Directv. after it enters the box it is basicly a Directv signal, it has to show up on the program guide.

Record


While we have the DishTV receiver/DVR, I suspect they are similar in principle.

You can't really do as you describe unless the unit has two individual tuners; some do, some don't. You'd need to check your manual to ldetermine that.

What you can do on all with the DVR function is watch a pre-recorded program since that comes from the hard drive, not the tuner.
This allows you to record one live and watch previously recorded material.

Hughes SD DVR40 suddenly "reboots"


It's most likely your hard drive. If it happens at the same point in the recording, or if you can delete a program and then record something else and it does it again, it is hitting a bad spot on the hard drive. Your best option is to replace the hard drive and you should be good to go.

DVR keeps pausing


The pausing can be a sign that the DVR is having memory allocation problems. These are software issues and cannot be repaired, look for a software update to your unit. In addition if it is a hardare issue I would check the signal into the unit because when the picture freeze it could be due to a drop in signal. Now if these two are not the cause there is a third possibility, and that is a defective hard drive or memory storage device and its associative circuitry in the unit. I would suggest that you either have this unit replaced by the company that supplied it or take it to a qualified repair center.

Hughes SD-DVR40 has video delays. the video stops every 5 seconds and when you press a button on the remote there is a delay for the response.


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.
