Re: [Tampa] All Cable Boxes Powered on

No kids in house; I do hope the house is not haunted!

Has happened twice, all after Software Upgrade...last time was last Thursday.

May have partial answer....watched my 8742 re-Boot just now......it went thru its normal display sequence.....but I saw a difference at the end. It went to the TIME then it Powered ON, then it went to 2d....and than my On-Channel which is 1009. So at this Point in the re-Boot process, my Box was ON. As I wrote, all 3 of my Boxes Re-Boot this way.

As I recall, Re-Boots prior to recent software changes stopped at the Time.....with the Box Powered Off.

Is it possible that the recent Software update has somehow been changed to where a re-Boot Powers on the Box at Re-Boot completion? if that is the case and my area incurred a momentary Power outage, that would cause the Boxes to re-Boot resulting in the Boxes Powered on following the re-Boot.

BHNtechXpert; re-boot a 8742 there and see if it completes at Power On or Off.
