Thanks Sam for this pretty comprehensive look at the I only have problems with the hdc, it stop working last week it was replaced with a new one, after it downloaded a software refresh the channel it defaults to is a non HD channel going to a HD channel made the TV connected via a HDMI cable to make a very loud noise and stop working, it burned the mobo on the TV I need help.

Is there anyway to set my volume control to Variable for the volume control rather than fixed? Yes, there is an IR sensor on the front of the receiver. Any data for transferring contents to PC would be helpful.

Taking a Look Inside the Cisco 8742HDC Cable Box

There are 3 screws on the back of the box and 1 on each side that must be removed to remove the cover. So far the only item I have been able to obtain is the quick reference guide. The time appears in blue? Thanks for providing this info and forum.

With every box I have had I have a problem with the remote only working from a foot or two away for the first minutes that the box is on.


However, during playback of recorded shows, or during playback after pausing fisco show, the picture gets distorted, shows groups of individual pixels, pauses itself a second or two, and is generally impossible to watch. The slingbox website suggests this.

Is there some option I inadvertently turned off or on to cause the fast forward behavior to suddenly change or is the box just not working properly?

Pulling the power supply out of the box TW and the other providers can have the customer to a power supply swap at their store rather than sending out a tech or doing a box swap.

TWC tech helped to try and locate such settings but we could not find one. Do you know it there is a way to dim the clock on this box? The tech refused to tell me the remote keys to access the diagnostic. The tv screen would be blank at the end of every time it cycled. A trick to find out if the tv is the source of the interference is to change the settings on the cable box to show the tuned channel rather than the clock.

Power for the DVR is provided by an external power brick manufactured by LiteOn, part number Opening up the cable box is pretty simple. Who is your cable provider? That will fix it, but may not be a permanent fix.

If my receiver is on it works. Since the repair of the line, when ever it gets windy or the temperature changes quickly outside the box goes crazy and reboots itself. Also when a incoming phone call comes up on the tv screen the box cannot be paused.

Is there any way to get this function back? Also if anyone has access to a manual, or any other documentation for this box please contact me. Reports some channels are not available. I have also had two different type boxes set to record same shows and had same problems from both 8742ndc for issues in past. Should all the outputs on the back of ccisco unit work concurrently.

There are grainy little spots that appear an disappear every couple seconds. At one time, a savvy Time Warner rep told us how to do it by pressing a few buttons on the front. Got two new Cisco boxes. Not sure if I hear any difference.

If you can contact a knowledgeable person within your cable company they might be able to either confirm the status of the port, or possibly enable it.

Hey Sam I was able to figure it out. Meanwhile, are we stuck with these boxes and is their 8742hrc way to change the color of the time display?

Slingbox does not allow receivers as controllable devices. There have been two mentions in the thread regarding random channel switching and reboots.
