I've had the unit for several months - no issues.
Today, after returning from work, I tried turning on the unit via remote - no go. Tried that a few times. In the past, sometimes, if I turn off the TV, the channel master remote responds, tried that too - no luck
I unplugged the unit, waited a few minutes then plugged it back again. I saw the green and red light come on and saw the main channel master splash screen, stating "Loading, please wait".
A minute or two later, I see the "The program guide info is now being downloaded to your CM-7000PAL DVR. This can take a few minutes to complete. Please wait or press "Select" to stop.
Once the downloading completes, I see a TV channel for a split second, then, the unit reboots again, and the process starts all over again.
As of now, it continues to be in a loop.
Has anyone experienced this, and if so, what was the workaround ?
