      Scheduled recordings won't be affected.
      Coming out of Eco Modem is not quite the same as a reboot. You should be returned to the same channel which you last viewed for a start.

      Important note: The times are subject to change. The STB will not go into deep sleep if you have a scheduled recording, for example and the actual times can be altered for various other reasons.

      No, but it does force the box to update the EPG.

      Thanks for this tip, it does appear to have solved the problem - certainly all of our series links have re-appeared. Thanks again.
