After about 5 months of flawless operation, my SAT-W60 suddenly stopped recording. Scheduled recordings failed. When I attempted a manual recording, the REC tab appeared on the screen, but nothing registered in My Shows.


The unit is on 24/7 and as a part of semi-random attempts to get things going, I turned the unit off for about five minutes. When I turned it back on, everything was back to normal. So far (about two days) everything is still working.


Just thought I would pass this along.


Has anyone else experienced this kind of thing? Any insights?

From what I have read in these threads that is the most common troubleshooting step there is, and the most likely to succeed. Taking out your card and reinserting it and having DirecTV reset your box through the data stream are also common approaches. I have had one box that started acting funning. Pulling the plug fixed it.
