Contour starts spontaneously after error code RDK-1000- TV service was down for two days with error code RDK-1000. Tried Cox remote reboot, unplugging and restarting all cable boxes- nothing worked. Several hours after scheduling a technician to come to the house, the TV service started on it's own. Should I keep the scheduled appointment to check the cable boxes anyway, to keep this from happening in the future?
Depends on appointment. If it's tomorrow, I'd cancel. If it's in the next 2-3 days, I'd monitor Contour for a few days and if okay, cancel. I think Cox has a money-grubbing rule to still charge if you cancel an appointment under 24 hours.
After a significant outages such as yours, there were/are thousands of households with cable-boxes bombarding Cox to get back on-line. it just took a while.
