Power Outages and STBs?


Recommended Posts

We live in Arlington, VA and have had FiOS for about nine months.  Saturday after a violent thunderstorm, our power was out for just over six hours.  After that the set top boxes (we have two DVRs) never got the guide and menu information back.  I tried rebooting the router and the set top boxes themselves, but nothing worked.  This morning I talked to tech support and they are sending out replacement boxes. 

I wonder if the lightening caused a power surge that did something to the boxes?  Has anyone else had a similar experience?  Both are on surge protectors.
