One of my 2 showstoppers started having strange characters appear on the screen (no I wasn't watching Sesame Street). Some of the characters are letters, some are strange maybe even foreign letters.


They just start appearing one at a time, in a line.


I don't think it is a heat problem because I have a fan blowing across the top and it is cool to the touch.


Any ideas?

You could try deleting the channel guide and then force a "Net connect" to reload the guide. This is done by going to 2-4-3 zones. The ultimate replay fix it without taking the unit apart is 7-7-7 zones and choose "Restore factory defaults". This last option deletes all recorded shows and channel guide also requires you to run setup all over again.

before you delete everything - just try rebooting the replay


1) warm rebooot - hold down the power button on the front of the unit (not the remote) for about 6 seconds until the screen flickers


or


2) cold rebootturn the unit off...wait until the drives spin down & then pull the power cord for a few minutes

I think one of the ReplayGuys mentioned the cold reboot as a solution for this problem some time ago.


Good luck!
