Recordings list is unavailable - wireless receiver only

I have had the following setup for awhile now:

 

  • DVR
  • 1 Wired STB
  • 1 Wireless STB

We have had relatively little issues (wireless receiver could view recordings, etc.) with anything until after a power outage the other night.  When we went to turn on the wireless STB, it indicated a connection issue with the WAP.  After recycling the WAP and the wireless STB, we did get the wireless STB to sync back up.

 

The problem is that ever since the STB has been sync'd back up, we have been unable to view our recordings from the wireless receiver or pause/rewind live tv.  However, we can still watch tv from this receiver, view scheduled recordings, and even click on account management in the menu and it recognizes our account, etc.

 

I have tried resetting the WAP (reset button on back) without any change. 

 

Since then, I have done the following, waiting for each device to fully power up before continuing:

 

  • Unplugged all devices (RG, DVR, WAP, and both STB's)
  • Turned on RG until device fully functional
  • Turned on DVR until device fully functional and DVR accessible
  • Turned on WAP until fully functional
  • Turned on Wireless STB until fully functional
  • Turned on Wired STB until fully functional

Same issue occurs even after power cycling all devices

 

Items of note:

 

  • If I go to the menu on the DVR and view the THDVR info, system shows number of TV receivers as 3
  • If I go to the menu on the wired STB and view the THDVR info, system shows number of TV receivers as 3
  • If I go to the menu on the wireless STB and view the THDVR info, system shows number of TV receivers as 1

It seems like the wireless receiver has gotten out of sync with my system.

 

WAP is Cisco

Wireless STB is Cisco ISB7005

 

Any thoughts on how to get the wireless STB to properly access the DVR again?

Hello Thundermonkey,

 

I'm sorry to hear the wireless receiver isn't communicating with the DVR but, thank you for including great detail on your equipment and troubleshooting. I have one more recommendation that may help resolve this issue before considering any replacement options. Have you tried a master (factory) reset on the wireless receiver?

To quote the steps from 'My Thoughts' on an earlier post, depress the "Power", "OK", and "DOWN" buttons for 10 seconds, release "POWER" and then the middle lights will flash three times, release all buttons, you'll see a single gear appear on screen, then 2 gears, etc. give it about 15+ minutes to reset, then another five to load the guide and DVR functions.

If these steps are done on the DVR unit then it will reformat the hard drive and wipe out the recordings but, if these steps are done on the wireless receiver, no recordings will be affected. This reset is mainly used for the DVR unit but, I've seen this help with numerous issues with wireless boxes as well. If it still doesn't work then I believe replacing the box would be the best solution. I hope this helps! Feel free to post your results. Thank you :smileyhappy:

Which RG do you have?
The 3800,3801 and 589 should all respond to your steps,

In your steps you do not say you factory reset RG, only rebooted. If 3800, 380, 589 repeat your above sequence with a factory reset of RG. The RG keeps a device list and how connected, the factory reset deletes this list and builds a new one as receivers are connected.

If you have an inid with i38hg, inid receive software update (reported issue in late August, early September (wifi live TV OK, sees future recordings, no dvr functions...pause, recorded TV, dvr booting error messages) would need inid replaced, recomend 589 vonded install, thiis would take a few hours to remove all inid components, install new NID, grounding, possible new homerun to RG placements, rewire jack, load new software to 589, reboot each receiver.

Hope this helps, please post results, thank you.

My RG is the 3800

 

I was hoping not to factory reset the RG (mainly due to some firewall configs I didn't want to have to redo) but will do so and repeat the steps and report back.

 

Thanks!

As requested, I did a factory reset on the 3800 and then repeated the steps in my original post.

 

The end result was exactly the same as my initial post, still unable to see recordings and unable to pause/rewind live tv on the wireless STB.  It also still only shows 1 receiver in the THDVR info settings while the other two receivers show 3 receivers in the THDVR info settings.

Thanks Morgan!

 

Factory resetting the wireless receiver did the trick. 

 

Recordings and pause/rewind live tv is working again.  I was hopeful that a reset of the receiver would work, I just wasn't doing a good job with my searches  on how to actually reset it :smileysad:

 

Thanks again for all your help in getting this resolved.:smileyvery-happy:
