Hello young57 ,

With the IMG 1.6.2 (interactive media guide) when you unplug an hdmi connection the stb sees that something has changed.  The 8801 error code that appears is actually the quick code that you could enter if you had called VZ Tech Support.  This quick code would send a reset command to the stb to try to  resolve the issue.  Since you know what has caused this issue, (you had unplugged the hdmi) there is no need to call VZ Tech Support and you can disregard the 8801 error code.
