LONSat I have a 530 with the new LNB and V Code but have not noticed anything very odd. I have locked it up once or twice I believe by pressing the keys too quickly while accessing the PVR list etc.

TheHans My 530 has been great for over a year now, but since getting that new V-code with the new LNB, it's doing weird things here and there. But it hasn't gone dead, at least not yet. It probably will now. :-) Do you have the new LNB? Maybe it has to do with the V-code.

noah12 Nice, like the last comment about the Blackhawk`s. My 630 occasionally reboots for no reason, I had one that would not turn on, but it was a refurbished one from Shaw. The only other thing I can think of is try turning and leaving it off for a while may be hot.

46FD04 These occurrences might have something to do with the Blackhawk's unbelievable win last night...

Danny001 my 630 does the same thing, just started last night, although mine shuts off completely and it's every 2 or 3 minutes non stop. So I guess in essence, it's not the same thing at all LOL

Receiver (DSR-530) went dead

At about 9:20 tonight, my receiver went dead. No green satellite, no red satellite, the clock worked, no picture, no on-screen menus, nothing. Did a front panel re-boot. Unplugged it, waited and plugged it back in. Nothing. Thought for sure another 530 died on me. Phoned ShawDirect to support, and as I was waiting --- about 20-25 minutes from last re-boot it started up spontaneously. I have been a longtime owner of 530's (I think this is the 6th one) so I have experienced just about every failure mode in the book, but I have never even heard of one dying, and coming back to life after 20 minutes. Makes me wonder if there was some software upgrade going on, or something like that. Did anybody else experience difficulties? (Or maybe another 530 is on its last legs)
