Question about Directv HR10-250 DTV Receiver
My Direct TV DVR is periodically recording only parts of shows. Sometimes it stops after 10 minutes, sometimes much longer like 45 minutes. It looks like it has one full hour of a show recorded, but at some point, it stops and asks if I want to delete. Any ideas?
Turn off the receiver, unplug the receiver, wait 30 seconds, plug it back in, and go through the setup again. This hard restart clears the memory and restarts the DVR software(clears any software glitches) This should fix this problem assuming that your satellite signal is good. Check that during the resetup. Most transponders will show between 70 to 100 signal strength. (Minimum is 70 for error free reception) Several transponders will show 0 as they are dead on the satellite, and not a receiver problem) If your satellite signal is in the 70's or less, you either live in Maine or you may need to realign the dish or something is blocking the signal like a tree or bush growing that is partially blocking the signal causing the signal to drop out(partial recordings)
