Since the storm last night in which we lost power, my receiver is not downloading the channel listings. It will download the channel names, but not what's showing on them. Anyone know what I can do to fix this?

Unplug, replug I guess as a start.

BTW, what does "magic lozenge eater" mean, kinda interesting.

hold the power button down for like six seconds.let it reboot back up, and do not flip through channels for 10 minutes or so and it should be there.this has worked for me.

IF the two above suggestions don't work. I would call Voom and get them to send a "hit" to your receiver. Usually the channels will come up first and than the rest of the programs showing afterwards. I think it should take about 30 minutes.

I did the second one first, because it's difficult to get to the plug. I'd have to move the television out. It rebooted the box, and it took about 30 minutes, but all's working now.

BTW, magic lozenge eater really has no meaning. Just mindless nonsense. :)

Thanks guys.
