I briefly unplugged my box today and now it will only show boot on the Display.
How long is briefly? Unplug it again, let it sit for a minute or two, then plug it back in, see if that helps.
When it first came up as boot I unplugged it again and left it for an hour. It still goes from 8888 to boot and no farther.
Can you try disconnecting the coaxial cable from your box as well as the power, then attach the coaxial cable first, followed by the power last. Also check that the coaxial cable is still securely attached to the wall, and if you notice anything is between the wall outlet and your PVR such as a cable splitter and it is possible to remove this, try connecting the cable directly from the wall to your PVR to get a more direct signal. If your PVR is still showing BOOT or another error after a few minutes still, please be sure to let me know.
I have followed your directions and when the power was connected the box came on showing 8888 followed by boot. I could hear the hard drive spins up. After a few minutes the box powered off and is still showing boot.
Thanks for trying this first. I'll send you a direct message to get your account information and look into this further. Can you please check your Inbox at the top for a message from me ^.
