A “hunt” message on the front display of your receiver means the receiver is having trouble locating a frequency. If you see this message, try the following:
Check for outages
Check the connections
- Check the coaxial cable going from the wall to the digital receiver and make sure the connections are finger-tight. Don't use a wrench as this can damage the equipment.
- If the cable connects to any other equipment before your receiver, such as an audio system or splitter, try bypassing these and connecting directly to the receiver.
Reset your receiver
- Reset your receiver by unplugging the power for 15 seconds and reconnecting it.
- If this does not fix the problem, try a stronger reset through My Account.
Good to know: After the reset, it will read “To be announced” in your guide for 30 minutes, and some channels may not work for the next 15 minutes.
