All cable box functions delayed after using remote

All cable box functions delayed after using remote

For about 3 weeks when I use my remotes and push a function, the cable box flashes green to acknowledge the command but is on a major delay to actually perform the command. I’ve tried turning off the boxes and restarting but this only works for a bit then starts the delay action again. Any ideas? New box?

Thanks

Re: All cable box functions delayed after using remote

Have you unplugged the boxes for at least 1 minute. Then plugged them in to reset the box and waited about 5 minutes for data to being down-loaded. 

 

Turning off the box, and turning back on, does not reset the box. If a remote is not aimed correctly, it may cause a data error on the cable-box causing problems.
