The updates screen shows two different options:

1) Inactivity time out. You CAN disable this feature.

2) Updates. You CAN NOT disable this feature. The receiver must shut down and download a new Program Guide and software (if needed) once each day. You CAN change when this happens, so choose a time that is most convenient to you. If you are watching TV at the time it needs to do this, you can select not to have it download, but eventually, the receiver will shut down to do its download anyway.

PS-if you are a commercial customer (your receiver provides programming to a TV or sound system in view/hearing of customers of your business) you can call customer service to have this feature disabled, but it can only be disabled for commercial customers, and the customer service you reach as a residential customer will have no idea what I'm talking about. Do not pretend to be a commercial customer if you are not, your bill will be much different, and not in your favor, and there will be no way of reversing it.

You can delete timers by going to Menu > 7 > Timers. Select "Edit Timers" and you can delete them. Let us know if you have any other questions!

C Dunn,

I can definitely assist with this. You'll want to access the Record Plus screen from the menu to make that change.

To get there go Menu > Preferences > Record Plus. Once there you can choose a default TV to record, or disable the feature so it will record on the tuner you are using, first. Let me know if you have any other questions!

Ken, I can understand the concern and would be happy to help. I hope this has been resolved by now. If not, you'll want to press the Star (*) button on the bottom of the remote to change the screen format. If it continues, or you need any other assistance, just let me know!

Try unplugging the receiver for 10 seconds then plugging it back in, and see if the problem is resolved. The receiver should only switch if you are watching live TV instead of a recording.

If the problem persists, and you are for sure not on Live TV, the receiver may need to be replaced. If it continues you can send me an email at [email protected], and I can assist you further!

Rare earth magnet. Google it. Then throw the safe out.

Home Security | Answered on Apr 13, 2020

The reset button is inside.

There is no factory override code, otherwise anyone that knew it could get into it!

The maker will tell you the original combination if you have the serial number. Of course, it may have been changed.

You can open it with a rare earth magnet in about 5 seconds.

Like Steve stated. I would add to use a rust-converting primer (the type that converts surface rust into an invert primer, stopping all future rusting).

As this is only occurring in the left corner, I'd try to determine exactly where the water is coming from (that's causing the damage). I suppose it could be condensation if the unit is over ten years old, but it also possible that a connection slightly loose or worn.
