Magdalena I am having a huge issue, my box is connected to the cable box properly. I try using my desktop computer and I get error P-31 which i looked up, and it's the error that says the box is not powered on. I also tried the app on my iPad and that does not work either. I know this is not the case as my box is currently lit up. Please help ASAP.
