I returned my rca utv becuase it kept rebooting at least once a night and sometimes 10 times in an hour. I just got a new sony utv and have not noticed any rebooting but the remote sensitivity seems to suck on it. I am using a mx-500 remote and I have to aim the remote right at the utv (about 10 feet from me) and sometimes have to hit the buttons 2 times for it to work. I was just wondering if this is the just way the sony is. With the rca I could aim the remote just about anywhere in the room and it worked fine.


Thanks,


Rare

I also use mx-500 with Sony's UTV and it is working great! I seem to recall having the same problems initially as you are having. I would sit there and punch the same button over and over before it would respond. After a week or so, it started working flawlessly. (Even the 3 digit favorite channels!)

Ok this is getting very frustrating. I am now having the Sony utv rebooting just as the rca was doing. I can not think of anything that would cause this to happen. Tonight when I was watching one show and recording another it was rebooting about every 2 min. I did go to check the signal strength and both signals where “locked†and around 92%. Tuner 2 would switch back and forth between “no satellite†and DirecTV†but the signal would stay locked and around 92% which seemed kind of strange. I have tried switching outlets to make sure it was not a power problem. I have moved it to a cooler location to make sure heat was not causing it. I think I might try disconnecting tuner 2 for a day or 2 and see what happens. Could having a short in the coax wire cause this my utv to reboot like this? My old DirecTV worked great at the same location and the only thing I have done different is run the extra coax for the second tuner.
