    Unhappy Me Sky box seems to have died

    Was supposed to be getting this new electronic guide today but it seems to have fucked up the box. No picture although it does come on and make the usual noises. I'll need to phone Sky but not sure when I'll get a free 6 hours to do it.

    right timey switch it of at the wall, then switch it on again but press the back up button and keep it pressed until all the lights come on the box then let it go, it should come up on the screen that the system is resetting it takes about ten minutes hopefully that should sort it, let me know

    Didn't need to do that, thankfully. I just unplugged it and plugged it back in again and it worked fine. Playme's suggestion would have been my next solution. I just didn't have time to do all that this morning before work.

    If I had a pound for everytime my Skybox went tits-up...

    I'd have about a tenner.

    Thankfully anything that refused to record is easily found on t'internet.

    When will these rascals give us technology that actually works? As opposed to all this tech that quite frankly sucks balls?
