Sadly - for Shaw - everyone I have talked to that has a 630 have had the same reboots. Many complained about lost recordings because of this problem.
Shaw - do you want to loose all this business?

Is not the receiver grounded through the 3rd (ground) pin on the power cord? And therefore the dish coax is grounded?
No similar problems with Bell.
