Last night my cs8000 locked up while changing channels. No big deal as this seems to happen every couple of weeks and a reboot with the back power switch always fixes it. Well, last night before I could get off the couch to reset the receiver, it started rebooting itself and came up to the initial install screen. Thats right, all my channel and satellite data was gone On the no-blindscan 8000, this means I have several hours (at least) of work to manually enter settings, transponders and satellites. I thought someone posted recently that one of the newer software versions allowed transponder and channel data to be saved and retrieved. I have the latest 3rd party software installed (I'm always hoping that the ota guide will be added) but cannot find any option to save the channel data. If someone knows how to do this please tell me so next time this happens, it won't be such a pain. BTW, Don't worry about me having the latest 3rd party software since I don't have any dishs set up for 110 or 119.
