HD Box Connects To MRDVR - Shows as offline

Odd problem - I have a box in a room on the 2nd floor that for some reason shows as being offline. It was working fine for several months now. All of the sudden on thursday - box goes off line. Odd part is that I can connect to the MRDVR without a problem and no channels are out. The box pulls no guide data and no VOD. I restarted the box all the different ways even disconnected the cord and tried the box in another room - no problem with the box. One thing - the line running to my attic is RG59 - I am trying to find a way to replace it but having no luck. I'm not sure if it's the line or if it's the router by chance? Any ideas?

Sounds like the box is not getting a MOCA signal.
Check your MOCA LAN stats. Chances are the box won't show up.

Now the question is: Is it the box or the cabling?
Try connecting the box to a known good outlet and see if gets VOD. If it works at another outlet, it's the cabling. If it doesn't work at a known good outlet, then the box is bad.
