I have been using my DTC-100 without problems since November 2000. My RPTV is not HDTV ready, so they are connected using S-video. Starting last night, only on channels 199 and 509, the color turns green, then a rainbow (red on top, progressing to blue, then green on the bottom), and then the color disappears altogether. Turning the unit off, or changing channels gets the color back to normal, for about 1 minute.


I have tried:

Unplugging the unit

Pulling out and reinserting the access card

Peforming a soft reset

Replacing the S-video cable


I have ruled out the TV, since it still works fine with all of my other gear.


Help!

Do you have the latest software downloaded, version 4.37, I think ? That might help, but I'm not sure.

I haven't watched the S-video out on 199 and 509, for a while, since I got my HDTV, but we used to have problems with Macrovision on those channels periodically, where the color would disappear on a regular cycle, as you say. It seems like this problem would last for a few days, and then go away for a while. I think it's on HBO's end, rather than the DTC100 going bad.
