Yesterday I reported that I had reset the update option to DISABLE, and set the zip code to 00000, and a reboot occurred within minutes. So my first conclusion was that changing these settings resulted in no improvement.
However, since that one reboot, I have watched for a couple of hours last night and again this morning, and no reboots.
Perhaps the change in settings did not take effect until the next reboot, after which all is well.
Stay tuned. If the reboot or lockup comes back, I'll report. If not, this could possibly have fixed the problem.
Question: Why do you think this solves the problem? The reboots were happening all the time, not just at the scheduled update time. Or is the the zip code change that is thought to be the crucial thing? I'm curious what the reasoning is. In any case, it might possibly be working.
I did talk to the Dish chat folks for a long, long time yesterday evening, and a new DTVPal is likely on its way. At the start of the chat, they had no familiarity with what this product is and no means to replace it. After a lot of work by the diligent chat guy, he appears to have moved mountains and figured out how to get me a new unit.
