Spectrum TV

My DVR is displaying this message: "Now entering DVR Sleep Mode. Your DVR controls will be unavailable for a short time." What should I do?

To conserve power, the DVR goes into sleep mode after four hours of inactivity.

  1. Press Guide Button, or any other button that accesses the hard drive to bring it out of sleep mode. For example, you could also change the channel or pause live TV.
  2. You may receive the message when trying to use one of these buttons. If so, wait a few seconds and try the button again. That gives the DVR time to come out of sleep mode.

Even if the DVR enters sleep mode, it performs any scheduled recordings. Sleep mode cannot be disabled.
