    Sometimes when I go out or there is a power outage my cable box takes a long long LONG time to warm up and turn on and this has only happened when we plug the TV back in and when we turn the cable box on it takes a minute to 60 seconds to turn on and it's not broken but it works and it returns to normal. Another habit I notice is that anytime I watch a show sometimes it resets the program guide and I would like to know what causes this because it only does it on my TV and not the main TV in our living room,

    What causes this and has anybody dealt with this problem before?,
