r---- on digital cable box, cable suddenly stopped working

All of a sudden the cable turned off, there was a "no signal" box on the screen, and the channel numbers on the 

box started changing very rapidly. I shut it off and turned it back on, now there is just  r----  where the clock usually is.

Any ideas?

Thanks

A new firmware update was pushed through this morning on the 8300HD boxes. It is SARA Version 1.93.16.1. If you shut the box off in the middle of the update, it may not have gone through properly. You might try rebooting the box again and see what happens.

Exact same problem here. Woke up this morning to "r---" on my box. Reset it, see FrLA, then d561 and it starts counting "h###". It eventually ends up on "r---" once again.

All is good with mine now, it booted on its own, and is now working perfectly.  Would have been nice to be

informed that an update was going to occur though.

Haven't checked my boxes yet or attempted to trouble shoot with rogers, However the tech is going to to say you need a new box.

 

My point is i own my boxes and now.... because they choose to send a firmware upgrade which destroyed my boxes...  i'll be on the hook not Rogers.

 

BAD Customer Service.

Having the same problem I called in to reset the digital box. Has anyone tried this? Is this a wasted effort?
