Cannot turn cable box on with Remote every morning

EVERY SINGLE morning when I try and turn the TV and Cable Box on with the remote, my TV turns on but the Cable box does not. Before trying to power the TV and the Cable box on the green light on the Cable box is lit, but the TV shows no signal.

The resolution is that I need to manually turn the box off and then on again. After this MANUAL PHYSICAL step the remote can control the cable box and works normally as expected.

Customer service has replaced the box and ruled out remote issues. Also, after I initially turn the box on, I can turn it off and then power back on with the remote. This clearly seems to be an issue with some state that device is put into overnight. My guess is that there is some sort of nightly update that causes the box to not respond.

Any ideas?
