No ...I was going to do that, but it was late and my wife was watching one of her shows. I will try that later tonight when I get home. Can I do a reboot from the DirecTV app, out of home??
Although I've noticed, at least with the old HDUI, that following an update, sometimes the box comes up in some kind of strange mode. Perhaps a diagnostic or test mode or something. And you can always tell this because the recordings all disappear and the menu icons are very incomplete and have a different shade of color to them.sometimes recordings are lost during an update. i have had it happen
i have read it can be a sign of a hard drive having issues.
i would call and ask for a warranty replacement receiver
