New tv set up cable box blinking orange

Just installed a new tv I thought I put all the cables where it needed to go but the cable box is blinking orange and my smart tv isnnot locating it. Is itnan easy fix where maybe a few cables are in the wrong spot or does it need an update?

The TV shouldn't have to locate the DirecTV box. What model box do you have plugged into the TV?

did you accidentally disconnect the coax from the c61?
