      New batteries perhaps ?

      Is it when you are switching the box from having no power?

      Or the box is on standby already and simply switching it to Power On?

      Thanks for your response. It is the same problem when using the remote after-

      - Switching the box off completely - no light on box.

      - Box showing red light.

      - Box showing green light.

      Just out of interest do you have a light on the remote when this problem is occuring? If not then in all likelihood theres some problem with the power button on the remote.

      Thanks for your reply. It is not the remote. Have tried another remote and have the same problem.

      Try a forced software update on the box:
      Unplug and power down box
      Press and hold backup
      Plug box back in whilst holding backup
      Release backup when the lights come on the front of the box
      Wait 10-20 minutes until box returns to standby

      Try again

      seems to reset itself

      Could be a dodgy hard drive.
