Display flashing

Message 1 of 3

Just a question I have the 500GB dvr and once in a while when I turn the box on after it is off say overnight it comes on, the tv works and I get picture but the display on the box is flashing the channel #.  If i hit any button on the remote the flashing stops and it stays steady.  Just wondering what that means?  I have been having other issues with the box so if this is another one then I'm gonna have to address them all.

That happens to me almost every day and I've read others complain about it too. I have no idea what it means but it is very annoying.

Yep, I also have experienced the flashing. I have had the box about a month, I have noticed it do this maybe three or four times. I never turn the box off, but I will be watching something and suddenly notice that the display is flashing, never seems to stop until I take some action. Everything on the box seems to work just fine though, no issues for me at all. Strange....
