I have a Pace DC758D PVR box. It keeps re-setting itself every 10 minutes or so? I have tried to re-calibarte it myself by powering it off for 30 seconds and then back on but the problem is still there? Any suggestions on a fixfor this problem?
If the Pace is resetting every 10 minutes or so, it does looks like a power issue. Pulling the power cord is a great first step.
Next, I would look at how the Pace connects to the wall socket. Is it direct to the socket or does it go through a power bar? If it's on a power bar, are there energy-hogging devices such as a big screen TV or stereo system also plugged in? I have seen cases where the power bar can't distribute power properly among all the devices and the HD box is the one that gets starved for power. Is it possible to bypass the power bar and connect directly to the socket as a test to see if it still resets itself?
Also, is there an expander (external hard drive) connected to the Pace? If there is, disconnect the eSata cable between them, reconnect the power cord to the Pace one more time to reboot it, and then see if it still happens.
Let us know the outcome of your tests!
