How do I reset my cable box?
Resetting your cable box may help resolve error messages that display on some or all channels, or when you’re trying to access or order pay-per-view or ON Demand programming.
- Unplug the power cord from the back of your cable box or at the wall outlet for 15 seconds.
- Reconnect the power.
After the box powers on, most channels should be available for immediate viewing; however, the menu, ON Demand and other features may take up to 30 minutes to load and become accessible. If your cable box has an interactive, on-screen guide, the first hour of guide information should display within 30 minutes. It may take a multiple hours for the guide to display full programming information.
How do I remotely reset my cable box?
Midco has two options for you to remotely reset your cable TV equipment (not available with TiVo equipment). While we offer these options, we recommend that you’re near the cable TV box to confirm it powers off after the reset signal has been sent. If the equipment does not power off within a few minutes, we suggest trying to reset the cable box by unplugging the power cord.
