Before we get started, please prepare a couple of things:


  • switch off your digibox
  • pull the plug for power supply
  • find the button BACKUP at the front panel of the digibox, press it and hold it pressed
  • with the button BACKUP still held pressed you put in the power plug
  • hold BACKUP pressed until you see all lights at the front panel of the digibox flash for about 2 sec (Important: This might take 10 secs to happen)
  • release BACKUP and wait 10 minutes
  • The digibox is now downloading the latest software version and should operate perfectly thereafter.

Once you completed the hard reset, you are ready to go.

Now, to get the System Details press SERVICES on your sky remote, and select SETTINGS then SYSTEM DETAILS.

Ready? Let’s go!

Activations and pairings are done every day of the year from 9am to 5pm. If too late, we work on it for you the next day. We are sorry, but below we ask quite a lot of information. We would not if this was not necessary to do our job.
