Over the last 6 months my D* HD DVR has been locking up - I get the "searching for signal" error, a "has not communicated with the sat for the past 6 hours" error, a grey screen, or a frozen picture.

This is 1 - 2 times a week. In all cases, hitting the reset button fixed the problem.

The previous HD unit (not a DVR) installed in the same location worked fine which makes me think it's not the cableing. All the other boxes in the house work fine as well so I don't think it's the signal from the dish.

So it must be the unit itself, right? Got a replacement from D* last week - it's locked up twice already.

Any ideas? I've unscrewed / re attached the coax, checked connections, etc.
