    Was just getting round to put the cable tidys on the cables when i pulled out the power cord from my ntl pace box ( by mistake ).
    Now when i put it back in ( we are talking milliseconds ) Sky one had gone all blank, cant get picture or sound, also on some of the movie channels,
    So will it be easily repaired or time to get a new box...

    what modification did you do? can you reverse it?

    otherwise look at a code to reset the box, it should retune everything, if something knackered the power then id imagine it would of blew the entire box
