Replying to dvrbeta.

Thank you so much for the "cold init" info.  that saved me months of reviewing the Guide to find series i would have lost. 

 

Ask for the "cold init" folks. The phone techs may not know about it or offer it but it works!

Just installed and activated our new Quantum TV boxes.  I too missed the fact that there is no Import From Cloud menu choice.  Before I resigned myself to being doomed to re-creating our favorites list, etc, I searched and found this thread.

 

So I called Verizon tech support and without much delay I got through to a tech.  I described my problem and asked him to do a cold init.  He said he could do that, but it isn't necessary.

 

Instead of the cold init he had me go to the Menu and select Settings > System Information.  Once there I he had me key in 2618 and presto....a menu came up asking me if I wanted to import settings from another box.

 

I chose the name of my previous DVR STP and in about 15 seconds, the import was complete.  And it works!

 

I'm a happy camper and figured I'd add to this thread in the hope it may save someone else some grief in the future.

Appreciate that. That worked perfectly.  I knew there was a Code but I lost it over the Years.
