530 PVR appears to have "expired"
One of my father in laws 530 PVR's appears to have reached the end of its life. If anyone can think of anything else for me to try please let me know. The problem here is it is at a Home Away from Home location that is also not in Canada so there have been no phone calls made to Shaw D for quite some time now. I guess it will have to come home to Canada for a visit.
Anyway, here is what happened. One morning it was frozen at 3:30 AM on the screen and not working. A power down reboot fixed it for the day but next morning the screen was frozen at something like 4:30 or 5:30. A power down reboot did nothing except the screen is now completely blank and I tried hooking each of the different outputs to the TV including DVI, Componenet, Composit and Coax but no signal to the TV at all. Tried pushing the power button several times as I tested each output since there is no signs of life on the front panel. The unit is warm (normal warmth) and the HD is running, can hear/feel the slight vibration.
I used to be a Shaw D customer before switching to Telus Optik TV and I have numerous 6xx receivers in storage that I would have used to upgrade my father in laws 5xx receivers except for the vacation location dilemma. Then there is the receiver/LNB/Satellite upgrade situation coming soon as well. I haven't seen anything here about Shaw D hunting out the Home Away From Home locations though. I know that isn't always easy for them to do but many people had their vacation locations registered.
