      They are talking about the Services menu on the Sky receiver, nothing to do with the PC or router

      Cut out the "services" button on your remote*. Buy a new remote and keep it locked away for emergency use only.

      *Or make it inoperable by cutting off the conductive "pill" on the rear of the rubber keypad.
