Spectrum TV

The following message is displayed on my Spectrum Receiver: dnld.

Spectrum Receivers and DVRs periodically download updates, and dnld is sometimes displayed on the front of the Spectrum Receiver at various times during these updates.

This is an expected behavior and does not indicate an error. Most updates take less than 10 minutes to complete, after which the time will be displayed on the front of your Spectrum Receiver. Your Spectrum Receiver then returns to normal operation.

If dnld or any other message has been displayed with no changes for more than 10 to 15 minutes:

  1. The download may have been interrupted. Reboot the Spectrum Receiver, which restarts the update.
  2. Please wait for the update to complete. Do not attempt to reboot the Spectrum Receiver a second time, as this will only restart the download from the beginning.
  3. If the Spectrum Receiver again displays a message with no change for more than 10 to 15 minutes, contact an agent for additional assistance.
