I always reboot the modem first then the PVR. Once the pvr is back online, any other receivers after that.

UPDATE: It took several hours or a few days... but the PVR finally connected just before the tech showed up.
Order I'm told with a power reset...
- Modem first
- PVR next
- wireless cable boxes last. It may take several hours to connect.
