DVR Message: DVR Service Unavailable

DVR Message: DVR Service Unavailable

My old HD DVR Set Top stopped working last week.  My wife called Comcast and held for almost an hour to get a new one ordered and it took 5 days to get it.  Set up of the new Set Top was fairly simple and the HD TV works well, however when I push the "My DVR" button on the Universal Remote I get the following message:

 

DVR Service Unavailable

DVR service is not available or is currently diabled.

Please call your cable operator.

 

I don't have time to hold for an hour to wait for an online tech so I am hoping someone here will be able to help.  When I look up my account online it shows that the new HD cable box I have is a DVR and my bill shows I am still being charged for the DVR service.  Can anyone help?
