    I had a V+Box installed on Wednesday of this week along with a Standard STB. As of this morning I cannot get the Home menu to display on the V+Box, I also cannot get into V+ menu. I am not sure whether it is a problem of the V+Box or the remote.

    The problems are with the Scientific Atlanta V+ STB

    Any suggestions to remedy this probem would be greatly appreciated.

    Turn it off, unplug at the wall, leave for about 10 seconds, plug back in, then restart.

    Usually cures all problems, albeit sometimes temporarily.

    If you're not getting menus but are getting pictures the most likely thing would be wrong SCART connected to TV, i.e. VCR Scart instead of TV Scart.

    If that's not it try rebooting, or power down and back up.

    regards

    Damn - too slow again . . .

    Thank you for both replies. After having a look at the back of the machine it was connected to the wrong scart. I had moved it and put the scart into VCR instead of TV. What a divvy :suicide::suicide::suicide:
