With your tv swiched on, Turn your sky box off then keep your finger on the backup button whilst turning your box back on, make sure you keep your finger on backup button until all the lights come on on the front of your sky box, or a message comes on screen (tv) saying "UPDATING SYSTEM SOFTWARE, DO NOT DISCONNECT FROM THE MAINS, THIS WILL TAKE APPROX 10 MINS"
if this does not help give me a bell on 07738910264 after 330pm mon-fri

I have a Sky+HD box on a unit, the opposite side of the living room to the where the tv unit is. The Sky box can only go here due to satellite dish cables. I have run coaxial cables underneath the floor...


Unscrew f connectors from LNB, and rewire to desired location, or tell sky to do it or you'll leave. They will put you through to retentions, but will end up sending someone out to do te job

I have an Hitachi digital set top box which i leave switched on.When i switch on the television it takes 5 to 10 min for the picture to materialize and then stabilize into a good image.What is the problem?


Some component(s) is/are having to heat up, to a point, so that it's value changes & as it does so, gets to a point where the set stabilizes, and works. Thermal faults are real hard to find.. Although a good application of Can Freeze Spray can soon sort out your "Bad" component(s)

When setting my dish for sky i have a great quality and signal but the ID number coming up on my sky box is 13e instead of 002


Hello John,
http://www.dishpointer.com/ is a good web site just incase your hitting the wrong satellite your wanting to line this upto 28.2e Astra.

If after doing this the ID does not work then it may be worth forcing a download onto the sky box.

If you not familiar in how to do this, then follow these steps. turn the power off to the sky box or unplug from the back of the box itself. Then what i want you to do is hold down the Backup button on the front of the box. then reinsert the power or turn back on. while you have the backup button pressed in.

Hold this button down until all the lights on the front of the box illuminate. You should now see on the the screen a warning message come up informing you not to disconnect the power or the sky cable.

This takes approx 10 minutes to do this. It takes longer if you watching this so make yourself a Cuppa.

Hope this helps you out.

My sky + is stuck on standby, i,ve tried holding directional key and switching on/off the green lights flash but the box goes back into standby regards dave


Hello Dave, Hold the left and right buttons down on the front of your sky + box then unplug and plug back in the power. Hold these down until the circle LED shows then press the select button in the middle. This does a factory reset.

Once this is Done unplug from the back of the Sky+ box then hold down the backup button and plug back in until all the lights are on... on the front of your box. Updating software should be showen on the screen whilest this is doing its thing. Ohh you can take your finger off the backup button when you see this message on the screen.

I would advise you turn the channel over or turn the TV off as this can take 10 + minutes to update. I dont want to be responsable for burning the screen.

Hope this Help

Sky+ DVD Recorder Tuning

Sky upstairs


Yes on the back of the box there is a RF2 output...

run a coaxil aerial cable from there to your required TV, you then need to tune the 2nd tv to the sky box.

You can also buy a 'Magic Eye' and a 'extra remote' this will allow you to change channels from the second destination with only 1 digi box.

Down point is that you have to watch the same channel on both tv's.

a second card and box and a dual LNB will allow you to watch seperate channels.

LG LST-5100P set top box. Several times a day have


cap-grant, my friend has the same problem with set top box. When I phone maker I was told it is due to poor and weak signal. You must have 80% signal strength to maintain good picture. When signal strength dropped picture would freeze and had to be turned off at the power point to restart as nothing would work. So I guess what my experience says is you may need better aerial to boost signal and prevent dropout Leonard210
