I turned on my TV to find my HR20-700 stuck on a channel and completely unresponsive, I wasn't too worried since it was receiving sat signal and outputting display. I tried an RBR and it got stuck on the checking satellite settings screen. Let it sit like that for an hour or so no change, still stuck. Now I'm starting to worry. I tried unplugging it for a few minutes, plugged it back in, same thing, stuck on that second screen. Seriously worried now. I reset it again, forced a software download, that worked fine, it downloaded the new software and proceeded to continue its boot up, then it gets stuck in the same place it had been. At this point I'm freaking out. It can't be dead, it just can't. I've had this thing since early Dec 2006, and it's been solid as rock. Now it seems to be nothing but a rock. Anyone have another suggestions before I call D* for a replacement. Does anyone know if they still replace dead HR20s with HR20s or will I lose my OTA tuner and get stuck with that damned HR21. And no I won't be buying an AM21, I will not be paying D* to get something they shouldn't have taken away in the first place.
