      Red Light

      I cannot get the sky box to come on. I have taken the power lead out and allowed time .........but still only a red light.

      Re: Red Light

      If it won't come on after being unplugged for 10 mins then I think you are in trouble have you tried unplugging the LNB feeds also. The only other thing you can try is a software update.

      Unplug and hold down the backup button, then plug back in keeping the backup button pressed (on the receiver not the remote).

      If it doesn't start and do a download then I think you are going to have to ring Sky and pay for a call. (65).
