X1 box flashing blue bar on right

Usually the box has an aqua colored vertical bar on the right side of our box. Last couple of days I’ve noticed it is blinking a blue color. So last night I unplugged it and it restarted and went back to the solid aqua. Tonight, again, I see it’s flashong blue. What’s going on?

I have an XG2 with a vertical bar colored.  Are you able to watch TV while the light is blinking?

Hmm. Try unplugging/plugging it back in again.

The OP says they already tried that, and it only worked overnight. How many times do you think they should repeat this non-fix?

 

If you don't know the answer to their question, why post?
