My 3100 freezes every once in a while. Called Bell, they went thru the checks with me and said they reprogrammed my card but it still freezes. Their explanation is my receiver is the problem and I need to buy a new one....any other suggestions??

Bell has been cranking out the ECMs the past few months, much gnashing of teeth at the hax0r sites. I bet that the occasional legit box is vulnerable to the ECMs they are using.

Do they have a warranty plan you can sign up for so they take responsibility for replacing your box?

Once in a while but this seems like the OP is having issues all the time

Possibly a cabling issue? If you watch the signal strength screen (menu 6-1-1), does the signal strength stay constant or does it suddently dip down to 10% and then back up again? I have seen cabling issues cause freezing. Are you able to borrow a friend's receiver for an hour or two (invite them by for coffee?) and confirm?
