Cable box will not wake up unless I power it off and back on again

When I turn on the tv I get an error message not connected to the cable, if reboot the cable box it connects to the network, but if I turn the tv off and back on again I get the not connected to the network Again. 2 TVs in my House have this problem, but the other 5 do not have this problem.

on the two TVs that you have the problem. When you turn the TV off does the power LED of the set top box also turn off?
