We lost the network last night around 11:30PM. I noticed the above on the channels that now require a digital box. Is this what they use to generate that "Digital box now required" screen? Pretty low tech stuff. Would have been nice if they just allowed the old unencrypted stuff through during these difficult times, at least until they recover from this.

They play a DVD for the "You need a box" message. Sounds like the DVD player lost power, and they need to press "play" to stream the slate again.
