Every nite this week while watching our 50 inch samsung dlp, out of nowhere the screen would go dark and the receiver would start resetting itself.Sometimes it takes just once but other times its resets five or six times before pic comes back on. Any body have any ideas what may be causing this. Thanks in advance for any replys

Sounds like the electricity to the receiver getting cut off. The receiver could have a bad power supply, bad power cord, or bad electrical outlet whether connected to a surge protector or directly to a wall outlet.

The worst scenario however, would be that something is malfunctioning within the circuitry of the receiver.

Consider actually putting your system (both TV and H20) on a battery backup system. If you do have power problems, you may be be shortening the life of you TV lamp too. Also I would consider going to the D* website and signing up fro their protection plan. Do you have the H20 in an area where you can get good air circulation? Heat buildup could also cause this.

Water ingress.

Check connectors for water and corrosion. Replace where necessary. Make sure unused ports on multiswitch are terminated.

there was also a problem with the h20 receiver resetting itself if there was an ota connected to it.

I have experienced it today, receiver resetted itself three times in a row, fourth time i changed the station from local to DTV station, it worked OK, this is first time i have noticed it in last one month.
I have an OTA indoor connected to H20, but i did not notice this problem in my 2nd H20 that also have an indoor antenna connected.
