DVR lost its menu

Any ideas on fixing this problem:

My DVR no longer shows a DVR page on the main menu, and the Recorded TV button does nothing. 

The history:

Today I swapped one device on my RG for another.  In the process, I accidentally disconnected the connection to my DVR.  After noticing it, I reconnected it to the wrong port (Broadband, not network).  Much later, I noticed the box not working and did a few soft resets that gave me: client initialization error.  Then I tried a power cycle with no improvement.  A search on this site pointed me to the bad connection, and I reconnected the DVR to a network port.  This brought back TV, On Demand, and the Program Guide, but the DVR is missing; i.e. not even a menu pane in the main menu.

 

I tried uverse support and the tech tried a RG reboot, but to no avail.  He gave up and told me to chat back during normal working hours and they'd get a senior tech working on it.

 

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Eric

Will power cycling the DVR cause loss of existing recorded programs?
