Re authorizing boxes doesn harm anything.. guess it may have lost connection at some point durring the download/reboot. (will have to remember that for next time someone has the same)
Just a heads up, you can from the automated menu when calling in, send re-authorization as well, as well as can do it from the myrogers website portal 🙂
Twice this week the Cisco Nextbox Whole Home PVR has shown this dnLd msg and it NEVER goes away on its own. We have missed recording several shows as we don't see the box during the day while at work. I called and was immediately credited for the lost day of service. Nice gesture but... I still missed my shows!
It appears that the box is not finishing its reboot cycle after the download is complete. I have never tried to actually turn the box on with the dnLd displayed but when I did turn it on after the manual reboot (unplug/plug) the red "loading..." bar was on the screen so it IS doing something.
i have seen the DNLD message persist on the front of the box..
but by hitting power and turning the box on, it went away and was able to do nromal functions fine.
Might be worth having a tech out to double check that all the signal there is OK..that if its not, could be holding up the download process.
I'm having the same issue. I just got my Nextbox 3 on Saturday so I did not know if this is just part of the first time startup.
I have been having this problem for a while. Current firmware is .129 from August. EVERY time it tries to push a dnld of the new .130 (I assume that is what it is trying to do - that's what Rogers tech support told me) if FAILS to reboot the machine. I can wait forever and it just will NOT complete.
I can reboot manually by unplugging etc and all return to "normal" except that the firmware is still the old firmware and any shows I was recording during the unplugging are of course lost or at best interrupted.
At this rate I will NEVER get any firmware upgrades. I don't know what problems .130 addresses but if the machine will not reboot itself and complete then I wish Rogers would stop pushing it.
ANd here it is trying again right in the middle of PRIME TIME. How inconsiderate (incompetent?) is that???????
