Cisco RNG200N cable box displayed an odd message when turned on this morning and now won't turn on or respond to anything. When I turned it on, a popup message was displayed that said something about reformatting an external drive which would erase all content, and that it wouldn't be available if I didn't reformat it. Never seen anything like that before. It had "OK/Cancel" choice at bottom but I had no control to select anything. I hit "exit" on the remote and the popup went away. But now my box is acting like a large paperweight.
I've gone online and sent restart signal to it twice. No effect. I've unplugged it and plugged it back in. That has resulted in the box displaying a steady "1" as the channel display, but no actual signal to the TV. No time display. It's an old box, did it just commit suicide? ETA - Of course, as soon as I posted this, the box ressurrected itself and now works as normal. Sorry.
