      New member reset question

      Hi Everyone,

      I'm new to the form and fairly new to Sky after moving in with my partner a couple of months ago.

      Any way, I've been given a Sky + box, an Amstrad, and have talked my better half into letting me have Sky Sports 1and 2 for the footie. I've got Sky to configure our existing Sky card to match the + box , thanks to advice on here , which works as I can now get the additional channels on the + box.

      The problem I've got is that the hard drive has only 2% capacity remaining due to there being countless recordings of BB and BBLB filling up the drive. I think the previous owner must have had the box set to record the series.

      My question is is their a way of resetting or formating the hard drive or + box so that all these episodes and the series recording are deleted? Unfortunately I don't have the ownwer's manual.

      Many thanks.

      press serivce button on remote
      press 4 then 0 then 1 then select
      you be taken to a install menu
      go to the last option full system reset
      wait for the box to reboot you know when the front light flashes
      wait 3 mins after this
      all done you can now use the full hard drive space

      to get the lastest software for the box

      turn off power to the box
      hold down backup button on front off box
      turn power on keep it pressed
      all 4 lights come on let go off backup
      and now wait untill box reboots
      if you have a plasma or lcd turn tv off
      due to the update on screen gives the tv a screen burn
