Every so often I awake to find the channel numbers flashing. I change one channel up or down then back to the channel and it stops. Can you please tell me what this is. thx.

That happens to me every once in awhile also and I do what you do to correct it. I would also like to know what causes it.

ok so it turns out verizon box programing flashes the numbers when you have messages.

my message light does not start flashing or turn on the numbers start flashing.

check and delete all messages and it stops.

That's a wrong answer locoman. I see this too every once in awhile, I think it's just a glitch in the software. There are no message lights active at this time. When you have a message the word "New" appears in the main menu next to the Message option.

it may not be a NEW message but a old one my need deleted !

Next time just look in your mesage section you will see one that may or may not have been read, but once it is deleted and the STB turned off and on the flashing stops.

It has nothing to do with a message. If you turn the STB off & on it will clear it up regardless if you delete any messages.
