    My Panasonic digibox seems to be having a bit of a problem. for the last three or four weeks, two or three times a day a dialogue box appears saying. for your information searching for listings.
    The box then either locks or switches to the sky active channel.
    i have tried unplugging and plugging the box back in, nothing seems to work. Does anybody have any ideas how tostop this happening.? :confused:

    Try a reset.
    Remove your card. Put Digibox in standby. Switch the box off at the mains for at least 30 seconds. While unplugged, wipe the gold contacts of the card carefully with a dry tissue to remove any static build-up. Switch the mains back on. Switch Digibox back on (it'll boot up for around 20 seconds first). Insert viewing card when prompted.

    OR maybe try to force a software update.
    Remove your card. Switch the box off at the mains. Press and hold the backup button down on the box, then switch the mains back on. Wait for about 20 seconds, until you see a message appear on your television (which only appears on a SCART lead). Follow the instructions (ie don't do anything for the next ten minutes). Experience shows that many boxes download upgraded software but do not activate it until you switch the box off and on at the mains. When Sky wish to upgrade your box they simply send it a signal to switch off.
