I recently purchased a JVC 5500 (JVC's version of the 5000,
which reports itself as a 5000 so that the HDTV software
works perfectly) from:
www.dishdirect.com (here in Dallas)
They had LOTS for sale, and they must have gotten them on
some kind of a closeout... because they were priced at only
So I'd recommend you contact them and replace your flaky
5000. It's too cheap a solution to pass up.

According to Cheezmo repair or replacement is not an option with DN.

It's hard to imagine that these things just wear out. Maybe they need a good wack/plug/unplug/reset/trychan4 routine occasionally.
