The Sky HD box just starts showing a blue screen today, after googling I try a forced update;
- Switch off the sky power
- Hold the back up button on top of the box and power on.
- Wait until 4 LED’s light up (this can take up to 30 seconds), the screen should say updating don’t switch off
- Wait for up to 10mins
- Box will go into standby give it couple of minutes and see if it comes out of standby
This didn’t work but amazingly this seemingly nonsense set of instructions does;
- Unplug power lead from Sky
- Disconnect/connect HDMI from Sky
- Disconnect/connect HDMI from TV
- Reconnect Sky power
- Wait a minute or two
- Press ‘Sky’ button on remote
Thanks to this post for the tips.
