View Full Version : Power up lockup??

08-25-2002, 10:17 PM
I have been having a problem with my Hughes gxcebot DTV/Tivo receiver. I was missing some channels and noticed that I wasnt getting a signal on about half of the transponders.
I called DTV and they said my lnb or my cable was bad. So I changed the coax and the stupid thing didnt power on after.
( Related or not I dont know) Anyways, later on it powered up but it only makes it to the screen that says "Almost there, A few more seconds" and then it locks up or something but never gets past that point. How or can I fix this problem? Any help would be appreciated.
I called DTV after that and they said that the receiver was junk. What do you think?
Also this is a stock receiver, no mods or hacks

Did you ever replace the LNB? your post only mentions the coax cable. Without the signal from the satellite, it wont finnish booting up. Also, make sure the ribbon from the power supply is firmly attached to the motherboard
