Sorry, no. I've got 2 DirecTV D-11 boxes and they're both functioning  
correctly. I haven't reset the boxes since my last power outage that  
outlasted my UPS's (stupid rolling blackouts) about 2 months ago and  
they're still changing channels correctly. I was also affected by the  
baud rate change. When did this start happening for you? I hope it's  
not just a case of me not getting the pushed "upgrade" yet.
