jacks up your receiver ???

These CE's rarely cause issues, but I guess every once in a while ....

Jacks up reciever = major issues

I really have not had any issues except after last national release, I have to reboot reciever about once a week now due to blank recordings, but otherwise i have not had any issues with the CE's.

I hate these ce's!
I always have trouble downloading since, i moved all irds to garage and use cone shaped repeaters at each tv.
Having all irds in garage really cuts down on the heat in all tv rooms. I have to enter 02468 upto 25 times before download annoying as sh*t, but i eventually get them.
I try to enter these codes with directv rc24 remote or my harmony 520, lots of time i goto garage in front of ird and enter codes or do it through cone shape repeater. It just irks me to try and download on 2 machines every week seems to take out 45-75 minutes for a 10 min download! Got 1 so far today gonna try some more before i give up tonight and try again tomorrow night.
0241 on both machines:cool:
UPDATE, Of course after rant 2nd machine downloads on 1st try through cone shaped repeater.
Murphys Law lol!
I feel better now!:D

how do you do the diag thingy? The notes are a little confusing. Do i do a keyword search for IAMANEDGECUTTER, and then do i press the menu and info buttons simultaneously?

requires IAMANEDGECUTTER keyword search to be enabled. Step 1 is a one time process, if you ran the search in the past skip to step 2.

Step 1 enables a hidden menu with couple options. It has been used for many things over the CE program. Often times things they "test" via that menu end up becoming part of the regular menus eventually.
