I have 2 DCT2524 cable box, sometimes the screen will hang/freeze forever but sound will still running fine. I can fix it by change channel or turn it off/on.
It happen not very often but few times a week.

Anyone have the same problem?
Called Shaw, they said no problem found.:mad:

Thanks for your reply

Occasional glitches are normal for digital cable boxes. Perform a regular reboot (once a month say) and be prepared to occasionally change channels etc. Check out the following FAQ on Motorola STBs.

It sounds as though you've got more than the occasional issue - check your signal - S/N ratio per the above FAQ.

I recently had the same problem for a few days. The picture would freeze when I went from a recorded show to a live one, but the sound was still there. Changing channels did not fix it unless I went from an HD channel to a SD. It hasn't done it for a few days though. I didn't phone Shaw as you sit there for ever, and I have NEVER got a call back when I have tried going that route.
