Cannot change channel

I'm using the latest Firefox release and for the last two weeks I have been unable to change the cable box Channel through my computer. Any ideas? Thank you in advance.

Try unplugging your box for a minute or so and then plug it back in.

 

I suggest you do this before you leave the house or before you go to bed. It takes some time for the grid to fully load and for the DVR to fully sync back up again.

 

After you have done this, please try again and let me know the results.

 

Thanks,

Re: Cannot change channel

Hi Joe,

 

I tried your suggestion. I unplugged my cable box for 15 min. and plugged it back in. I waited overnight for the data to reload. I still get an error message when I try to change the channel through the computer. Anything else I could try?

 

thank you,

Try using a different web browser and let me know if it works. This is not a permanent solution but it will help us narrow down your issue.

Re: Cannot change channel

I've tried Internet Explorer and Google Chrome. I uninstalled Constant Guard and reinstalled it. Same thing with all.

Hi Joe,

 

The channel changer seems to be working almost. It says your request to set undefined has been sent. And it changes the channel.

 

Thank you,

 

Ole
