      Can a basic Skybox be reset by user ?

      My Thomson basic digibox appears to have packed up. I get no signal at all just a blank screen. Can't access any menus or anything. Checked the tv and that's fine so it must be the digibox.
      Have tried unplugging it,waiting a minute then reconnecting but no luck.
      Does any kind soul know if there is a reset button or some way to manually reset it?

      Thanks for any help.

      Don't think so, generally un-plugging the box is re-setting it! but you can get really cheap standard boxes anyway to replace it with, got an old sony one for 16 quid off e-bay about five years ago, still going strong
