Maximum number of event timers reached (041) error with 942
I have a Dish 942 DVR running software version L2.27. I had about 28 timers in there as of this morning. When I tried to schedule a program to record by highlighting it in the guide and pressing SELECT, I received the error "The Maximum number of event timers has been reached." The message tells me to remove existing timers and try again. I got all the way down to 22 timers before calling support. They were of no help. My only workaround is to soft-reset the 942 by holding the power button down; that makes the problem go away for a while.
Has anyone else encountered this problem?
Has anyone any idea about what the maximum number of timers truly is on a Dish 942?
Thank you for helping this SatelliteGuys newbie out.
