Here are some screens that are new and that were previously found but never shown anywhere. We like to offer then to our users and as well let them know that some of these screens could impact the performance of your VOOM receiver. Use at your own Risk

EPG Information Screen

1 - To get to this screen, hit the "VOOM" button and then press the "Info" button.

This screen has three pieces of information: the Epg, the Otv, and the Nep. You decide what each of these mean. To get back to the previous window just hit the "Back" button.

Warning: When I selected the Epg by hitting the OK button, I got another screen which is familiar to all but in a different form. I try to do the same with Otv and Nep and I was successful with Nep one time but with both of these I got a frozen receiver and I had to boot the receiver to get it back to normal. So be careful and be aware that it might get frozen.

In this Thread: Inside the VOOM Box, geekygizmo wrote:

Found a new menu(s)...

Get to the "Installation Settings" menu
(VoOm),(green),(system settings), (8. Installation Settings)

Type
988 = System Configuration (Yes we all knew this one)
977 = Advanced System Status (only has one option - "1. Diagnostics Data" (See "Motorola Installation & Diagnostic Menu Guide.pdf" for more details on this) http://www.installs.com/docs/Motorola Installation & Diagnostic Menu Guide.pdf
966 = Operational Mode (can be changed to "Normal" or "Demo")

Do you see the pattern here? I also tried 955, 944, and 933 which gives you option 3 from the installation settings menu - you have to use digits that are not used in the menu you are on.

There are lots of combinations starting with 9 if anyone wants to poke at it.
Just stay on the "Installation Settings Menu" when your trying them, use back if you get something you don't like.

Basically, the next screens will be what geekygizmo saw...

I will go one by one in the System Configuration Screen.

The next set of screens you need to be careful because you could easily de-authorize your receiver or lose all your custom settings.

If you follow geekygizmo instructions and hit 977 from the Installation Settings, you get the advanced System Status that has only one option - the Diagnostic Data.
