You will need to reboot your cable box. First,
Unplug your cable box from either the wall outlet or the box itself.
Wait 5 seconds and plug it back in.
During the reboot process, the digital cable box will display "HOLD" followed by "TURN ON". This may take 3-5 minutes.
When the front panel on the digital cable box displays the time, the reboot is complete.
Turn on your TV and cable box. There may be a slight delay while the menu screen loads.
