      how to hard reset (format) you sky + box from the front panel..

      Hi all,
      In case any of you have got the permanent standby issue that I had with my box.. try the following:

      switch off at the wall and then hold the left and right directional buttons on the front panel.. switch back on and wait until the large green cirle goes green... when it does (it will start flashing).. hit the select button the front panel.. the green circle will go backwards for a few minutes.

      It will then go into standby mode.. leave two mins and then you're good to go...

      (warning - this will reset the box and lose all your planner programmes so only do it as a last resort)

      I've spent all morning faffing about with a Sky box stuck on standby. Then I discovered your reset solution. Many, many thanks! (even if I did lose my recordings). I was up and running within five minutes! :-)

      Well done!
      We've been trying everything, and even though we had deleted everything off the hard-drive . it said we only had 7% memory left, and kept freezing..
      This worked the first time, so glad we have all our memory back..
