I am having a very strange problem. My 5040 replay seemingly works ok, but every time I use the Channel Select it goes into a "please wait" state, like it is reinitializing. I can look at my recorded shows with no problem and I successfully did a manual reconnect to download channels.
The other very strange thing is that even after the box was unplugged, after the "please wait" cycle it manually enters the last channel I had manually keyed in with the remote. That by the way seems to be working just fine. I don't understand how it can remember the last channel entered after a reboot.
I don't use the box much these days, but I am trying to record a show and I can't get to the Channel guide with this problem.
