*********** WARNING ***********

THE INSIDES OF YOUR BOX ARE STILL LIVE!
When the box powers up it will immediately start formatting the HDD, this will take some time.
During this stage the amber light will show, and the green light will flash.
When it is finished use your remote to turn the box on.


Step 6

Now that your box is back in working order it is time to remove all cables from the bare chassis and fully secure the HDD and cradle back in the bare chassis using the retaining screw.
Once the chassis is secure reassemble the box by reversing Step 2 of the procedure above.
Remember if you use the box for the Top Up Tv Anytime service, you will need to scan for channels to let the box download the Top Up Tv software.


Step 7

Once your box is back together you can replace all the cables in the back and start using it again.
It is advised to leave the box tuned to multiplex A (channel Five) for an hour to allow the latest version of the software to download.
