What is the reset button on the Spectrum101 (HD) and Spectrum 201 (HD DVR) receivers?


Previously, you could only reboot a receiver by unplugging the power adapter. Spectrum 101/201 receivers include a reset button to make rebooting easier.

To use the reset button:

  • Press and hold for less than 5 seconds to receive and on-screen prompt to reset.
  • Press and hold for more than 5 seconds and the box will automatically reset.
  • Press and hold continuously for 30 seconds to initiate a reset similar to a power cycle.
