I received a DTV Pal for Christmas 2008 and finally hooked it up last Sunday, 6/14/2009. It seems to work so far, but noticed a few strange minor things.
Why is it after a few days of not using the TV and DTV Pal converter (always plugged into power) and I turn on my dTV Pal, I get nothing on my TV and computer screens (hooked up to both)? I see DTV Pal's green power light. When clicking on remote control buttons, light does not blink to register my pressings like in normal working behavior. I assume it froze, crashed, or something. I unplugged the power and reconnected, and had to wait for DTV Pal to start up. This happened twice already.
