Sometimes the TV's themselves "crash". Seriously. They are Insignia brand, which is a...uh...lesser brand.

It's sometimes difficult to diagnose this as it looks the same as if the computer itself was locked up (and the fact that who has ever heard of a TV crashing? Leave it to us to find a way...)

For stations 1 - 3...

  1. Go to the brainbox and in the "Bridge Manager" window, click "TVs_L". This sends the IR code to all TVs on the left-hand side of the bridge. The Signal toggles the TVs on or off (depending on what they're current set to), in this case, we want them all to be off, so that way when we restart the frozen TV, it's on the same side of the on/off switch as the other two.
  2. On whatever TV is currently frozen, open up the stainless lid, and flip the power switch off to kill the power, wait about 10 seconds and then flip it back on
  3. Go back ot the brainbox and in the "Bridge Manager" window, click "TVs_L". This sends the IR code to all TVs on the left-hand side of the bridge, turning them all back on

For stations 4 - 6...
