I read that there is a factory reset that you can do. This will return the unit to how it was when it came out of the box.

Firstly you have to enable the diagnostic functions by quickly pressing the following sequence on the remote:


Then on the Technical Information pages there will be a reset option. This clears everything - channels, favourites, PIN etc.

There will be a default PIN that comes pre-programmed in and the instructions should mention this.

Is there a bib button remote controller that will link to a Sony VTX-D800U set top box?

I can try to point you in the right direction. You will have to program these remotes for your set-top-box which may be time consuming. There is probably no guarantee your Sony STB will be compatible with the remote, so I would call MAPLIN or any other company you find and ask them.

This remote looks like a possibility , from MAPLIN.
Check it out.
Here are some more possibilities:

Resetting my TECHNIKA STB9007LE Freeview Receiver

Hi there

It appears that somebody at Technika thought it would be a wonderful wheeze to the box ask for a PIN when retuned. My daughter had the brainwave of putting in four zeros and voila!!!

Hope that solves your problem

Unlock pin number

If you don't remember your lock code. you need to take the unit to your secure spot, this should be where ever you set up the machine. once in the security area, turn the machine on, at that point you can change the code. If you don't remember either, then the unit has to go back to Garmin to be unlocked.

Hope this is of some help.
