Motorola 6416. Watching the curling. TV screen went Green. Box went 8888 and reset itself. No idea why. Happened in Nanaimo at 3:20 pm.
Sorry you experienced that interruption. Is this the first time you've noticed that or has this become a regular problem? Occasionally (although not always), this can occur from the power supply so if you're using a power bar/surge protector it can be worth testing your cable box directly to a power outlet instead. If it's still happening frequently we'd like to take a closer look.
First time in - I can't remember when. Everything is plugged in to a power bar (TV, box and sound bar). None of the others lost power or reset so I doubt it was a surge.
Also, plugging box into wall seems to be counter-intuitive to protecting all the computers from being zapped.
I'll keep an eye on it.
Hey jnkyrd, it's rare for a digital box to reset itself like that but it can happen occasionally. It's possible that there was a power surge and the box had to reset due to it.
I would be more concerned if it happened more than that one time. Let us know if it does.
