HS 17 Strange display

We had a bad storm a couple days ago and knocked the power out. When the receiver came back up, it starting displaying this banner. Has anyone seen this happen before? Also, would it be wise to do a red button reset on the HS 17?

Thanks in advance.

Some elements are missing from that banner, it happens occasionally on most if not all of DirecTVs receivers. A reboot should resolve, but it should work fine as is until you reboot as well. Likely had nothing to do with the storm, just something didn't load right after the reboot when you lost power.
Thanks for the reply. I knew I wasn't going crazy. I'm going to reboot the HS17 tonight.
