Mag 2160 finally dead?
Background; 2160 connected to cable, passing through to tv. Have done soft reset,hard reset over the years until the clean tuner solution fixed all problems. Thunder storms knocked cable out a couple of times the past few days, always returned to normal. Both 2160 and tv plugged into battery ups.
The Problem; Last night everything normal. This morning 2160 is showing ----/----- on display. Turned it on, reset time, turned it off. Short time later tv looks like all channels are scrambled, 2160 shows no display at all, is dead. Unplug 2160 to do soft reset, tv clears up, plays perfectly. Do soft reset on 2160 no luck, still dead.
To sum it up, 2160 is dead, with it plugged in to power, tv looks scrambled, unplug 2160 from power tv is clear.
So has my old friend finally given up the ghost?
