Data light on my Contour Box is a steady yellow, beginning yesterday. I reset it and it went off.Today when I turned it on it was back to yellow. This is reported on DSL Reports as well. What gives?
Changed panel light brightness. Light when out.
Hi Cee Robison, Some of us having already changed panel light brightness to get the same result, however in 24-48 hours after the change was made the yellow data light returned. Can you please let us know if your fix to make the yellow light go away is sustained over time?
Kevin, I'm in Algiers(New Orleans) 70131 and my contour cable box started doing this yesterday Nov. 1. I powered down and powered back up and it was gone but it was back again today. I tried the light setting in devices as suggested above from 3 to off and back to 3 and the yellow light is currently off. Will see what tomorrow brings. I called tech support this morning and she did not even know what I was talking about. Please keep us posted. Must be a software problem with the contour boxes?
Light was back on today. Maybe if fails to turn off after the daily updates(2 to 4 AM)? Hope that it is updating properly.
Any results yet? The yellow light is still coming on daily when I use the power saver function the night before or at any time. I have it set to power down. I did try turning the power saver function off and the yellow light did not come on at all the next day. But, it does come on daily when I turn the TV on after it has powered down for the night or during the day after 4 hrs. Am still turning off the yellow light by going to device settings, device lights, power lights brightness. As soon as bring up power lights brightness the yellow light flicks and goes off. I don't have to change from 3 to off. Of course with power saver on the light comes back on any time I re-start the TV after power saver takes effect.

Serious question... why not just turn off power saver and turn the DVR on when you want to watch TV and manually turn it off when you are finished watching TV? If the yellow light only comes on after power saver is used, wouldn't that fix the yellow light issue? It may be personal preference, but what benefit does power saver really provide unless you just forget to turn the off the DVR? What am I missing?
