is the SWM power inserter connected to a working AC outlet with a solid green light?

Have you moved/disconnected anything?

There is nothing between the cables and the outlet. Did not see anything. We have not moved anything. Had a few rain showers over the past two days.

Press the dash :smileyminus: button on the DVR's remote.  Does the resulting message indicate a SWM present?  If so, you have a power inserter (see link).  You must assure that the PI has a solid green light.   If so, then check all the coax fittings you can find for tightness.
