The power blinked on and off last night. The DVR is plugged into the RG through Cat 5 and it works fine. No issues with recorded or live programs. All of the other boxes are coax. I've done soft resets. Hard resets. And did the "Power-OK-Down Arrow" reset. I reset the RG as well. I got a "Client Initiialization Error" with the soft and hard resets and then after the "Power-OK-Down Arrow" and getting the gears they all go to the Red X. Any suggestions?

Red X is a boot failure. If memory serves me, Red X with 1 dot is a software issue, 2 dots is a hardware issue, and 3 dots is a sync issue. It seems strange that all 3 stb's get the red X with no dots simultaneously, but the client initialization error nails the error on the head. Tech support will check the PhyRate between coax connected boxes and the RG. This will either be a RG swap or a dispatch to prem. I'd suggest asking about "Home Wiring Protection" ($5/month) and push for a dispatch.
Depending on how everything is hooked up, it's probably a simple splitter replacement.
