Ignite TV down XRE errors

Doumat
I Plan to Stick Around

Just shy of two weeks ago, Rogers updated firmware on our Ignite set-top boxes to hopefully solve a number of problems.... (we'll wait and see)    Right after the firmware upgrade we had error XRE-03010....."please contact us"   After calling Rogers Tech Support we were given instructions on how to access the wi-fi setup menu for the set-top box.  We input the wi-fi login and password information and service was restored.   The problem is that 9 out of the last 12 mornings we have the same error message come up,  and have to go through the process to type in wi-fi login and password info.   

 

We suspect Rogers is updating software almost every night and overwriting the wi-fi settings.    We have a second TV but on that one the Ignite box is connected via ethernet cable so it does not have the wi-fi issue. A Senior Tech is scheduled to visit us in two days to come and look at the various issues we are having, including this issue.     

 

Just wondering if anyone else has this issue and has figured out how to keep it from happening repeatidly .  Its frustrating !!! 

 

Thanks Doug

XRE-03010 is a strange error code; it's not even listed on the Comcast/Xfinity support site.  I found an obscure reference that says it means "Forced Firmware Did Not Download or Apply" but other Internet searches did not turn up any useful information.

 

The only thing that I can suggest is that you either reboot or power-cycle your XB6 in order to drop and re-establish the Rogers Internet connection.  I would then power-cycle the Xi6 set-top box.  If the XRE-03010 error was caused by a connectivity issue, this might resolve the problem.  If the problem persists, additional troubleshooting will need to be done, and the set-top box might need to be replaced.

One other item to check is the signal strength to your home/neighbourhood. Many of the issues under discussion in this (TV) forum are related to a poor signal. With a poor signal, the firmware may not be loading properly. You can call Rogers and have them check the signal to your home/neighbourhood. They can do this remotely.

 

Here's a post on that topic:

Note that the link for testing the signal yourself may not work for Ignite, but because I'm not on Ignite, I don't know the procedure for viewing signal strength on the box.  Perhaps someone can provide that information here and I can then include it in my FAQ.

This shouldn't be the case with Ignite TV because the Xi6 set-top boxes are connected via either Wi-Fi or Ethernet.  If you have good network connectivity (where both IPv4 and IPv6 work properly), then that's all that matters.  Ignite TV is much more resilient to network errors (unrecoverable codewords that result in packet loss on the RF/DOCSIS side) than the old Digital TV service.  When downloading firmware, any lost TCP segments will get retransmitted.  When watching TV, the transport of the media streams is also completely different and can handle errors much better than the broadcast and switched digital video signals on Digital TV.

 

The Xfinity forums also make mention of the XRE-03010 error where the solution is to ensure that the coax connections are sound, but this is for an older set-top box that's connected to other Xfinity components via MoCA.

I wonder if it is an issue with that specific box.. and just not taking the firmware update.

Might be worth getting them to swap it out?

That was my thought as well.  There's hardly any (public) information on this error.  If it's not an IP/network-connectivity issue and not a weird provisioning issue (or some other problem on the back-end), then it's most likely a faulty set-top box.

 

The only other suggestion that I can think of is to try using "Refresh your Ignite TV Box(es)" in the MyRogers "TV" section to see if that can reset things back into a good state:

 

Refresh your Ignite TV Box(es)

If you’re experiencing any technical issues with your Ignite TV Box(es), it’s a good idea to refresh them. (Your settings and recorded shows will be saved.)
