"Almost there. Just a few minutes more..." for days.... - DirecTV DVR

#1
For "Almost there. Just a few minutes more..." for days...., relating to DirecTV DVRs and receivers. Our DVR (Phillips 704) has been showing this message for days. My wife tried to get help over the phone but to no avail. Someone is coming out on Thursday (it took over a week to schedule a service call) but I'm getting fed up with this. Any troubleshooting help?

The receiver has no mods, so I haven't done anything to cause this.
