    Older TIVO units having to reset?

    You might be able to get it repaired at (not loading this morning) Other than that you will need the software for the tivo hard drive if you replace it. I did mine with the correct instantcake package from

    Reception issue, what do you think?

    I've got the regular 18 inch directv dish and I've got a question about what transponder I should use to tune the reception? I'm getting 94-96 on average on almost all the transponders and one or two is 100 most the time. I had dish 500 for years, and always had a signal strenght of 122-125 on...

    I've been watching the 508's on ebay, they go for about $100 right now. I've got two I'm going to sell as soon as I watch everything on them.

    Not a good start Directv (kinda long)

    Yeah she was telling me I should not have bought them off ebay, when I didn't. Sorry its not clear, I'm not good a writing stuff. Oh, She also told me that the only authorized directv sales is them, no one else is authorized. How is it possible for a dealer to hook me up, make an account and...

    Not a good start Directv (kinda long)

    Directv told me I could not add a used tivo to my account (Another lie I take it) . I was offered one for free from my friend, but Direct said that it or any tivo could not be activated. I was told that on two seperate occasions. Thats why I went to weaknees to let them set up the account. I'm...

    Not a good start Directv (kinda long)

    OK, heres my story as short as possible. Dish screwed up the 508 boxes firmware. Wouldn't replace them both, wanted to charge me for a second replacement box. My friend (with a Tivo unit with Directv) said he has never had problems with his R10. So I researched this model and decided on going...

    508 problems.... conspiracy to upgrade?

    You must be the only one. Both mine screwed up at the same time with the same problems, at the same time I got the software upgrade to remove tivo patented software. I'm ticked off at Dish about this.

    My 508 Is Working Better

    I've still had some crashes with P368. I do have a new bug with P368, if I watch a recorded show, then go back to it and resume where I left off, it will show me like 40 minutes left then it starts the show at 5 minutes left, or if I left it somewhere to show the wife something, it won't resume...

    501 deleting recordings

    I haven't noticed any new deletions with 3.68, of course 3.65 completely cleaned my drive out, so 3.68 has nothing to delete :(

    Optical cables better?

    Make sure the settings on the receiver match your surround equipment. PCM only or Dolby only may help. As for louder commercials, I think its a side-effect of having better sound transmission, especially if you had rca before.

    Optical cables better?

    I can tell the difference. Optical is louder and clearer on my Kenwood system

    Answer from Dish on 501/510 Timer Problems
