20 Most Recent Hughes SD-DVR40 210-Hours Video Recorder Questions & Answers


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 .

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.

well it sounds like the tivo is trying to re aquire the information needed or it was damaged during the power outage.If you can get into the menu settings make sure that you are getting a satellite signal on both tuners or both cables coming from the satellite.If you have the same tivo thats in the picture then you can go to directv central "the blue button at the top of the remote" then once you get there go to "read new messages and setup,then settings then satellite signal.once you go to the signal testing screen make sure you have a signal on both of the signal meter bars.If you dont one of the cables may have been damged.another way to test to see if the cables are ok is to take another receiver from another room and see if if will work on BOTH the cables that plugged into the tivo.If you discover that one or both cables are not working you can go to a website called satellitescoop.com and there is a section that will explain how to fix the cable/If you are unable to get to the setup screen then something internal may be wrong with the tivo.You will have to call Directv and have the tivo replaced with the new DVR,not tivo anymore.Or you can replace it yourself.Once again the website i mentioned will help ALOT.GOOD LUCK rate me fixya if this helps.OH yeah not dialing out will not cause any problems.Mine is the same way and it will just prompt you to make a phone call.

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.

Hi, Pixelating and freezing are symptoms of loss of signal. You need to check all of your connections. Check for water in any connection. Check your satellite signal strength on each satellite and if low or they are all not there you could have a bad LNB but you need to check the LNBs and the multiswitch for poor or bad connections. Also check for any obstructions in the dish view to the sky or for anything that may not have been tightened down on the dish. Snow and ice builtup will cause this problem as well. Good Luck! Let me know what you find.
