First does the receiver have a green link light on, showing a connection to RG.
No check wiring connection, unplug, reattach, reboot RG.

Yes, Uverse errors recently changed fro,RED X, no dots, one dot, two dots or three dots to a numbering system that goes into the teens. Regardless of the number the basic concepts are same as before.....

1) STANDARD reboot, unplug , replug OR hold POWER button for ten seconds seconds.

2) DR disaster recovery, unplug, plug when three dots appear, unplug , replug total three times.
This allows unit to upgrade to new software and apply software. Will see one gear, followed by two gears.

3) FR factory reset, wipes out hard drive if DVR...
Factory reset for boxes...depress power, ok, down arrow 10~15 seconds, release power continue to hold ok, down till front panel lights flash three times..release buttons...single gear two gears, will auto reboot come back in 15 minutes see if can record, pause playback...NOTE on DVR this will reformat HD loss all recordings.

4) replace the receiver, if above items do not resolve then equipment swap either can have shipped or request tech visit.
If suspect possible wiring issue encourage the tech visit.

Hi dbanks403,

 

I apologize about the inconveniences you are having with your DVR. The information that my thoughts provided is great advice, and hopefully, it will help in getting everything working once again. I will also have my team send you a private message so if you do have any issues, we can easily get it replaced for you.

The errors  you had were input/output errors and/or filecoding exceptions.  Reformatting the hard drive eliminated those problems as it only wrote over the good disc area.  Before that, the disc was hitting bad areas and not being able to read them and caused the x and 1 to appear. Smiley Wink
