When the cable box and TV are initially turned on, there is loud static and very fuzzy picture.  The remote locks up and doesn't allow the box to be turned off. After 20 to 30 seconds the unit turns off.  Turning it back on then has a normal picture and sound.  I have rebooted the box several times but it does solve the problem.  Any suggestions?

Thanks.


in what way are you turning off the X1 set top box?

Poor Picture and Static When First ON

When the cable box and TV are initially turned on, there is loud static and very fuzzy picture.  The remote locks up and doesn't allow the box to be turned off. After 20 to 30 seconds the unit turns off.  Turning it back on then has a normal picture and sound.  I have rebooted the box several times but it does solve the problem.  Any suggestions?

Thanks.
