Tonight I was watching tv then the DVR froze.
After I restarted the DVR, it goes to the screen with the single gear but the status bar doesnt move.
After a few minutes it comes up with the red "X"
What the heck is wrong with this DVR???
Just solved the problem
I disconnected the downstairs router (it's being used as a switch piggy-backing on the DVR's COAX connection).
The status bar is moving on the screen with the gears.
Don't get why I had to do that.

Make SURE that DHCP is disabled on that router. If that router hands out an IP address that one of the STBs/DVR gets, it will cause the symptoms that you saw.
