Flashing "Connecting" Screen

Flashing "Connecting" Screen

For the past week my TV has been unable to connect to the receiver. Every time I turn on my TV it immediately goes to a light grey screen and flashes in between that screen and a screen with a "connecting" bar. I've tried resetting the box and and unplugging everything but nothing seems to be working. It cut out randomly while I was watching TV last week.

Re: Flashing "Connecting" Screen

Have you also tried resetting your main Genie DVR using the red button near the access card?

What models are you Genie DVR and other boxes?

Re: Flashing "Connecting" Screen

Over the last 3 days I have reset my Genie model C41-100 several times, as well as plugged & unplugged all cords including internet.  No change.   The main tv/receiver (HR44-500) work without any issue.

@AzMich, have you also tried resetting your main Genie DVR using the red button behind the access card door?
