    Went away for Christmas and unplugged all electrics. Got back and Sky + not recording. Second time this has happened after power interrupt. Checked Forum and followed instructions for system reset:

    services

    0 then 1
    select
    7
    select
    (thanks Satch!)

    All now Hunky Dory. Moral:

    Don't unplug Sky + (!?)

    Your local Fire Brigade might disagree. But if you're happy to risk it... :smoke:

    (I've seen quite a few posts about SKY+ boxes overheating because the fan didn't come on.)

    I've unplugged Sky+ v2 boxes for a couple of weeks, and they never come back on again. :( Red light yes, but nothing else; and lose all recordings when they replace box. :( :(

    Whenever I have to pull the plug on Sky+ (usually after a major crash) I really wonder if it is going to turn back on again.
