Ah I bet it happened when I was selecting "PIP" mode on the Dish 722, that button also operates the SYS INFO function of the Pal DVR. Still not sure how that changed the address code.

I prefer the fan blowing IN the way indicated since it directs the cooler ambient air over the HDD first.

Thanks I guess it's possible but I sure didn't do it on purpose. I'll be aware now that they can sync remote addresses like that.

Have you tried a new C34 yet? Old one doesn't necessarily have to look bad to be bad.

I replaced my old failed Nichicon 2200uF 10V with a new Panasonic "FM" series Low ESR 2200uF 16v. Mine hasn't...

Probably wait until the DST change this weekend and it may straighten itself out. You will probably have to delete and re-enter timers as they may get screwed up in the process. Just one of the bugs.

Looking at my Sony TV display 31.4 Retro shows 480i SD.
