How does it differ from front panel reboot?
Could you post the details of how to use it?
I set the zip code to all zeros to minimize random reboot.
Is there something else that I can do?
I've gone the longest ever, without a reset that would put
me out of sync with the Day-of-the-Week. Many months!
I just have to adjust the Scheduled Recordings once in a
while to account for the internal clock drift.
I believe random reboots can be minimized further by not
using the Guide System at all, including the 'all-zeros' Zip
Code! When I recently did this,
I could hear the relay
clicking inside every so often and the unit became more
unstable. (The clicking being the constant search on Cable
and OTA looking for the 'TVGOS' channel.)
I'll have to dig through this Thread and/or find my scribbled
notes somewhere on the 'Secret Codes' / 'Reset Codes' that
other members first posted on these.
I think one of these 'Codes' wipes the TVGOS 'clean'.
The units are the most stable when this is done and I'd advise
not play with the TVGOS ever again, including any setup with
entering valid or invalid zips, such as the "00000" zip.
