What is the difference between auto-correct and reinitializing the set top box?

Auto correct attempts to keep everything intact, checks some things, ask for a resend of some authorizations and then reboots.  Exactly which things is not documented.

Reboot alone sometimes corrects common problems.

Having Verizon reinit the box loses lots of things, although not recordings.  Afterwards you will have to redo customization, set passwords, recreate favorites, etc.

Already said.  You don't lose recordings, but do lose about everything else.
