My cable box/pvr keeps crashing and resetting itself. A few minutes into watching either cable or a recording, it crashes, then resets. Also all channels on guide are showing "to be announced". My cable box is several years old, could this be why?
To Be Announced, is because it keeps restarting, it isn't on long enough to get any of the guide information. Unless it has been at least an hour since the last reboot, and still no guide, then maybe.
Do you get any messages on screen while it it is crashing, before it starts to boot back up?
Check the power cable, secure on both ends, cable line secure, try a different power outlet, try directly into the wall if it is plugged into a power-bar
Thanks! No error messages, just static then rebooting. I've tried your suggestions, hopefully they will work! Thanks for the help
Nope. Just crashed again:(
I'm sorry that those steps didn't work for you, agrmt. I'd like to take a look into this a bit further for you. I've just sent you a direct message, which you can check by clicking the Inbox link at the top of the page ^
