Uncles GOD box = programmed RESET error


Active Member
Hi everyone. My Uncle has a GOD Satellite box. He switched on the box when he got home & the only channels he can get are on/off. They are TBN, Europe, QVC, Bravo, Islamic, BBC Parliament, CNN, ESPN. I have asked him if he can find the MENU button, but all the buttons are faded so he can't find even that. After dinner he will phone me back & try to find the Make/Model of the box. He doesn't pay, it's a free to air box & satellite dish that until now he has been able to receive quite a lot of channels. There is only an on/off button on the box itself. I'll bring more information as he updates me later on. Thanks a lot.

Never heard of this box. But if it is satellite the Freeview retune won't have affected it. Need more info really.

I know. I've never really noticed it that much when I have visited him. He'll update me on any specs in a little while. Thanks for your concern guys.

I`d have assumed that was a spoof website if I hadn`t known better :eek:
So they`re somehow software crippling a FTA box then charging £165 for it - very christian!
