Others (including me) have experienced this but only if you delete the recordings using the online DVR Manager. Recordings appear to delete fine in DVR Manager but continue to show when viewing Guide>Saved>Recordings on your TV. Jim

Please give users the option of turning off the info footer that appears at the bottom of the screen and stays there for five seconds after almost every action. It's distracting and annoying, and it makes replaying a small section of a program or sporting event very difficult when it blocks so much of the content. I know what channel I'm watching! And if I forget it is easy to get that information otherwise!
While I'm at it I might as well mention another annoyance: The prompt that tells me I can simply press the Fast Forward button to jump ahead 24 hours in the Guide. Once you know that you never, ever need to be reminded of it again! When it appears it covers the timeline at the top of the guide and is generally distracting. Whoever designed these notifications I'm sure had good intentions, but they become annoying very quickly.
PS - And, yes... I do know that I can press Exit to end the info footer early. But that requires keeping the remote in hand at all times and since the footer appears so often it's even more annoying to Exit from it constantly. (Adding this because I notice that someone always replies to similar posts with this information!)

I have one X1 DVR (PX013ANM) and four X1 STBs (SR150BNMD) in my house. Most work OK most of the time except the one STB in my bedroom. Every night it restarts - like all the rest - yet this box almost always fails to connect after restarting. It goes through all the same stuff as the others - Powering up...; Connecting to the X1 entertainment system; etc. - but then after repeating those a few times it just disconnects and I'm left with my TV's message that there is no device connected to this source. Then I have to get up and pull the plug on the X1 box, wait a few minutes, and then plug it back in. Of course then it goes through all the same rigamarole again and finally connects and lets me watch some TV before going to sleep.
This always occurs at the restart at about 2:15 or 2:30 AM, which is when I am getting to bed and would like to watch maybe 30 minutes of TV before dropping off to sleep. Very frustrating when I have to spend almost a half hour first getting the box going again.
Why would this be likely to occur on just one of my boxes? I appreciate any help or advice.

No signal problems on the box, and yes, it's on the same amp as all the rest. Cables and connections all appear to be good - all connections properly tight. No splitters that can be removed unfortunately. (I actually had to add one last year when I upgraded to a DOCSIS 3.0 modem. CC had no more gateways so they sent me a cable-only modem and instructed me to install a splitter to separate my phone and cable; still configured that way). TV only cables have only the 1->4 splitter in the outside box plus one other inside that was installed by the CC installers).
But.. good news anyway - all is working fine on that box now after an update was sent overnight. I can't say with certainty but I believe an update was probably sent the night before that caused the problems in the first place. Last night's update is the only change since my last post and all is working well again. Maddening!

Problems with my RNG150N STB that just started this morning:
"Last" button stopped working; I get a message stating that "This feature is not currently working".
Guide appears after a delay and I can navigate around in the guide, but I cannot go to any channel. Clicking on any channel does nothing.
In order to change channels I must either scroll through channels with the Up/Down buttons until I reach the desired channel and then press OK. Doesn’t work about half the time. Instead it puts me on a nearby channel but not the one selected.
I can enter a channel number using the number pad but I don’t get sent to the selected channel. Instead I am sent to what seems to be random channels. After trying a number of times I can sometimes end up on the desired channel. Often times I must find another way - or go to a different room to watch TV.
The "Info" button only works intermittently. Sometimes the info window pops up after a fairly long delay. Other times nothing happens at all.
This just started on Monday, 11/2/2015. Box has worked fine since May until then.
I have one X1 DVR and four other Samsung RNG150N boxes. Only this one box has done this so far.
Nothing else has changed in my house; nothing moved around this box, no other equipment added or removed. I am not seeing any similar issues on other boxes so far. (Though I haven't yet checked two boxes on the third floor). I changed out the batteries in my remote (even though I had just changed them three weeks ago), but that didn't seem to help any. Unfortunately I didn't notice if I am now on a different software or firmware as of today.
Any suggestions? Anyone else experienced similar issues? I did notice one other post above this one - from about a week or so ago - that mentions problems with the "Last" button behavior.
Thanks for any help!
