Repair Tech for several years.

Computer hobyist repair and sales for many years.

Owner of several types of DVRs for the last few years and learning about them.

I have recently got my extra Replay TV 55xx unit with defective phone and ethernet to be activated and clock set.

A device could be made to set the clock with no encription needed just data entered directly as clock chip needs it.

Also the clock circuit is very poor with just a capacitor backup and no battery.

Some units have bad backup capacitors and would function much better with a battery in the system.

A bad backup capacitor can loose the time in just a short power outage or unplug etc.

A battery can run the clock for up to a number of years with only some normal drifting of time acuracy.

Thank You, Cy
