    Direct TV receiver turns off = can't watch remotely

    keeleym

      I've been having trouble watching my slingbox away from home ever since DirecTV recently updated their interface. My DirecTV DVR now automatically turns off when it is not in use for a certain amount of time. It used to be that if the receiver was off, you could turn it on through slingbox. But for some reason that isn't working now. When I try to watch I get a "no video signal" message. I had somone at home turn manually turn the satellite box on, and then it worked. But after a while of non-use it must have turned back off again and now I'm still getting the "no video signal" message. Anyone else have this probem??
