I wont go into too much detail here because I think the title of the blog says it all so expect random thoughts, goings on, writing stuff, articles, and maybe some photos.
So whilst on the phone I hopped online and found the following which helped What I did was this: On the top of the sky HD box press and hold for 1 minute the power button until you get one red light. Next time you have an issue search the net first, its cheaper than endless phonecalls to them that get you down a dead end.
If I can at least get the box reactivated on my account I can resolve the problem from that point.
I noted one user was able to temporarily skip the update check and proceed to activate by disconnecting internet at the right time in the following thread: viewtopic.php?
Inserting a disc and installing it should be an easy task, but things have gone awry for some users.
