My on demand is not working. I receive error 40961. I have unplugged the box and plugged back in, but only waited a minute or so. It is really necessary to keep unplugged for 20 minutes? Any other thoughts on how to get on demand working again?

Found this info on other website: Not sure if it still works but worth a try:
Try this to correct your VOD error problem. If it doesn't work, call 1-800-COMCAST to have a service truck rolled.Press and hold SELECT on the front of the cable box until the message light begins to blink.Press INFO button on the front of the box.The box will now be in Diagnostic Mode. Press Volume Up until the page displays VOD Information (page # may vary by converter model).Press A key on the remote (customer may need to press A 2 or 3 times to get it to work)Wait until the Service Group: Unavailable changes (Note: message may vary by area but will most likely be a number)Press EXIT on the remote and tune to channel 900. Customer should now be able to access VOD.
Thanks. I saw this solution on the other website too. Did not expect it to work, but it did! Thanks again!
Didn't work for me......I'll have to call i guess.....
