Client box issue on Contour 2

I have a Client box on Contour 2 that appears to go on and off on one particular TV.  When I turn in that TV the picture flashes on and off. I have to restart that box to fix issue.  My other boxes do not seem to have this issue. Is this a sign of a defective box?

    Do you turn off this Mini Box when you're not using it?  It could be a defective box.  You could move it to another TV to duplicate the issue.

      A mini box doesn't have a power button.  The only way to turn one off is to unplug it.

        Correct.  However, if Mini Box is connected to power strip, switched outlet, another component...OP could be powering it off.

    A mini-box may occasionally display a picture briefly when the TV is turned on, then a "No signal" message.  It will reconnect on its own in a minute or so without powering the box off and on again.  It's annoying, but every one I've ever had has done that.
