I just bought a openbox 10
Problem I am having is when I shut of the receiver with the remote off.
I am unable to turn the receiver back on with the remote.
I have to shut the receiver off and on from the back switch,,,and when I do shut the receiver off with the remote the front of the receiver goes off but the picture still stays on.......
What can be the problem.....Thanks...NP

Welcome to the forum. Have you contacted the seller with the problem. It sounds like a firmware problem. Open box especially S10 do have some firmware problems. I haven't heard of your particular problems but some one will probably respond with information. There is a firmware section here at satellite guys and you can also try wydvb.com this is one supplier with firmware posted. I had a problem with my S10 out of the box It wouldn't blind scan or pre set scan, lucky for me I also had a S9 and dumped the firmware from it and up loaded it into my s10, and it worked O.K.

It is a firmware issue. Same problem I had, until I updated my firmware with the August 20th on this site.
I reviewed my success with it on the page where you download it. Good luck to you! There are still a few quirks
in my Openbox, but...its much better than when "new". If you've already programmed favorite satellites and locations
with a positioner, don't forget to download to USB your file that contains this, so after the update you can reload and continue enjoying
without having to reprogram all your satellites, transponders, and positions. There's been extensive writeups about Openbox quirks
on this site, search and read 'em for best enjoyment and information on your box!
