DVR Media Center restarts

Message 1 of 4
(357 Views)

My DVR keeps resetting. It seems to do it when I turn off my TV. I can tell it restarts because there will be multiple recording for the same show. Each recording will be about a minute or less. By looking at different shows I counted 15 restarts in about 2 hours. 

 

Verizon replaced the DVR and now the new one is doing it. Has anyone had this issue? It is really frustrating. For the entire day I believe it is reaching 30+ restarts. I replaced the power cord and HDMI cable with the new box. 

 

I have a Samsung TV so I use the Samsung One box.

Look at: menu>settings>audio and video>video settings>TV input control and make sure it is DISABLED.

Tried that. Also turned of the HDMi control thing on the TV. Still reboots. Now the DVR is not working because it is saying my DVR is full but there is nothing on it. It seems to do a full reboot that resets everything. Even the remote needs to be re connected to the DVR.

Have you tried unplugging the box from power for 3 or more minutes then plugging it in? Did you try a factory reset  in the Fios menu? If yes to both, it sounds like a replacement box is in your future.
