I am still in shock at what happened to our UTV receivers today. Late this afternoon I turned on a TV and realized that my RCA UTV was dead. Its old - I was one of those yr 2000 subscribers so I thought maybe it had run its course - disapointing but it was not one of our 2 prime UTV receivers....whew. So hours later I turn on the TV in our family room and the Sony UTV is dead - same thing with our bedroom RCA UTV. Strangly, we do have a few TIVOs hooked up to Direct TV and they all work fine. Our electricity flickered today (as it has hundreds of times) and we have a 16 port mult-switch that plugs in and also still works b/c I can see Direct TV through the Tivo boxes. As many of you might understand, this is devastating to us - all those shows still on the HDD and worse, the chance that we might be done with UTV forever. DirectTV said they wanted to send someone out because it was very strange that 3 failed at the same time. They also offered to send out replacement DVR boxes. We are not interested in a "replacement" to UTV. Can anyone think of any reason this might have happened??
