My cable box (DCT3416 I Dual Tuner DVR/HDTV Capable) turns itself off. For the past couple of days I have come home from work or woken up to a powered off cable box. Pressing the power button does not make the box turn on. I have had to unplug the box and plug it back in for it to power up and work (from either the back of the box or power outlet, it doesn't matter). I have missed DVR recordings due to this issue and I cannot find an answer on the forums. Calling the 800 number generally gives me the canned response, "switch out the box".

I installed by cable box last Friday and I just noticed that what I've been recording on my dvr will not play back when prompted. It says that it won't play because of a "fatal hardware error".

fatal hardware error = bad cable box.
