Many DirecTV users with the Hughes boxes are experiencing outages. This issue began over the weekend as the receivers would reboot at random intervals. Currently, some people (myself included) are getting a reboot every 10 minutes or so. According to the response to a call to DirecTV support, they are aware, and working on the issue, and are offering refunds for any downtime.
