2 weeks ago i started losing 6 or 7 channels. i got them back by umplugging the power cord and resetting the channels, then i lost the same channels again, and every day would happen the same thing over the course of 2 weeks until i lost them for good. direct tv technical support could not help me
If you mean "losing" as in you could no longer tune to those channels because they disappeared out of the channel list entirely, then it's likely a software problem. If you haven't already, try resetting your DVR to factory settings (since this unit is TiVo powered, it should be under the main menu, Messages and Settings, then Restart or Reset system; follow the on-screen instructions to reset the system).
If you mean "losing" as in you can tune to the channel but there's no signal, then that sounds like a tuner problem to me. If the box is still under warranty or you lease it, have it repaired or replaced. If you bought the box and the warranty is up, it looks like you might have to get a new one, or pay for the repair out of pocket.
You might also try calling back to DirecTV tech support and asking to be escalated or to speak with a supervisor; especially if it's a box you're leasing from them, since it is definitely *their* problem in that case.

Power lost on two units in one car is a little unique. Does it lose power in the middle of a trip or when you first get into car? I would recommend bench testing to direct 12v unit to see if car is causing voltage loss.
I will try to help you.
If you mean a Windows Password, for me is imposible to help.
if the password is in the setup, you just have to remove the battery mounted in the mainboard and install it again after few seconds.( with the computer turned off)
Turn your computer on and there is no more password.
I had the same behavior, but not as a result of power outage. The TV is driven by windows CE software and it goes haywire every now and then. Usually pulling the plug for a few seconds takes care of any problems, but not this time (as you noticed). I had unplugged my ethernet connection on the TV a few weeks ago and thought I'd hook it up again to see if there was a new software release (not likely). I went to the menu and chose "Connections" and then chose "Ethernet Setup" and then chose "Reset All". After I closed the menu the TV rebooted itself (as it said it would). After my TV rebooted I had my analog channels back. There shouldn't be any connection between these two events, but it worked for me. Hopefully it will work for you as well. Good Luck!
