Weird reboot problem using Channel Select?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
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.

Any ideas?

TIA

Sounds like you might have an issue with an illegal character in one of the very early parts of your program guide, even though that usually results in a re-boot. Have you tried 243-Zones and clearing the Program Guide twice?

If that doesn't take care of the problem, I'd say you might be looking at a flakey hard drive.

Thanks! Clearing the Channel Guide twice did the trick.
