Spectrum Maintience- Box Reads CD With Numbers Going Upward? (Guide Update)

Got a notice (email) from Spectrum that maintenance is being done on the cable boxes tonight, Wednesday March 30, 2023 and the box is showing CD with numbers going upwards. Is this a software update? Changes to the guide? The email said the update would occur between 12-6am and would take about an hour to complete.

I have never seen the CD message, which I assume means "Cable Download." I am only familiar with the OCAP download process and than the numbers L-11 going downwards. When it gets to L-3, it is loading all the guide data. Than on boxes with clocks, when the clock comes back, it is complete.

I am in Metro Milwaukee Wisconsin.
