So, for a couple of days now, my On Demand feature, and various other channels are not working. On Demand - nothing shows up. Just a blank screen. And for the channels that won't work, it says it is authorizing, and then says the channel is not currently available. We have synced things, rebooted the box, and unplugged it and plugged it back in. Nothing. Any ideas on what I should do next?
This is usually a signal issue.
Try the simple things first....tighten your coax connections at every visible point....back of the box, at the wall, at any visible splitters you might have.
And if that has no effect, call tech support, indicate to the CSR that you are having problems with some of the channels and ask the CSR to run a signal check on the cable box. Assuming that you have Rogers internet as well, if you log into your modem, and navigate to the STATUS.... DOCSIS WAN page, your downstream signal levels should be around 0 dBmV. If yours are really low, below -10 dBmV for example, then you definitely have signal issues, and it will be time to have a tech inspect / replace the external cable and or connectors, which is pretty common as they don't last forever.
It can certainly be a signal issue. I'd have to run a signal test on your lines first and then we can proceed with further troubleshooting as needed.

Easiest way to eplain it..
Is that there is signal on the line.. but its not pushing you whatever channel when you ask for it.
It is actually pushing ALL channels at the same time.
How they do this.. is the line uses a wide range of frequecies.. I forget the exact values, but but for examples sake lets say 100mhz to 2000mhz.
Generally the power and the signal may be ok across most of that frequency. But there could be say only an issue at one side of it.. 100-300mhz. That would only effect the channels, etc that fall into THAT range
Hi, for the past few days when I access ondemand I get the message "check back periodically for programing" I have reset box twice and still same message???
its most likely a signal or communication issue. contact rogers to have them remotely check your connection, and they can also rauthorize the box.
