Performing a System Refresh on a Contour DVR

All TVs connected to your Contour set-top box will be interrupted until the system refresh is complete.


Using the Cox remote, press the A button.

Result: The Help page displays.


Use the arrow buttons to highlight System Refresh, then press OK.

Result: The System Refresh pop up window displays.


From the System Refresh pop up, use the arrow buttons to highlight Refresh Now, then press OK.

Important: The system refresh takes up to 20 minutes and does not delete any preferences, settings, or recordings.
