Four times in the past week, we have had to reboot our host DVR box several times to access cable. It shows as "No signal" on the tv initially then the box reboots over and over again until i unplug the power cord. Eventually, it reboots successfully but this is easily 30 minutes of our time almost every morning. Anybody else experience this and, if so, is there a solution?
This happened to me in the last month, same exact symptoms. After some discussions with a Cox tech it was decided a new box was the answer. No problems since the switch.
Thanks for the reply. My biggest issue with a replacement is we will lose over 300 recorded programs. Apparently, Cox in our area has failed to evolve and doesn't have the capability to back up my recorded programs to a Cloud platform.3
I know the feeling. I lost about a year's worth of recorded programs. Funny thing is I really don't miss them and just started over!
This happened to me when I was watching tv late night last night. In fact it happens often. We reboot the main box at least once every other day. The picture freezes, the guide will not move up or down, and things that I have recorded pixelates or freezes also. Last night I spent 45 minutes rebooting, then decided to watch the contour app on my phone, but there was no internet. I tried rebooting the box for it but nothing worked, and I am getting ready to find some other way to watch tv and get internet.
