Try a hard reboot to update/reset everything.
Unplug the Sky box (no need to remove card), press and hold the the 'Back Up' button on the box, plug the box back in, and after about ten secs the box will come on and display a warning message on you TV, not to turn the box off. The box will then go online and update to the lastest software.

Do a reboot. Take viewing card out, unplug power cord, hold "Backup" button, plug cable back in, keep holding backup button in till all lights come on and it reboots. Simples.
SNAP!

Right, I have done this (without taking out the viewing card) tv says it is updating systen software and that it might take 10mins...hope it doesn't delete all my recorded programmes!

You've done it right then. YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR RECORDINGS THOUGH (lol, only joking ;))
Seriously, I've never lost any anyway. Let us know if it clears it up for you.

Its not coming back on!! The screen has just gone blue without the writing about system software - I have tried turning it on and nothing is happening...the husband is not going to be pleased with me if its not working when he gets home! but haha never mind - it was only his programmes that hadnt been watched!

sky is poo , virgin media is far better .
better plus box s that never go off and the quickest internet in the uk by far

I think they were due to change the listings, putting the HD channels where the non HD ones were (or something like that)

Could be something to do with this?

You don't switch it on or off, (I said that in the instructions, well, I said don't turn off) it should come on by itself. You didn't give it much time!! You said at 7.48 that you'd done it then posted this at 7.57, a bit soon to start panicking! If it's still not working try it again but LEAVE it alone.

Edit: I see it's back on. Is it working properly now?
Sancho - Mine where updated without me knowing. But I suppose if you reied turning over at the exact time it was updating, then maybe it could be problematical.

Sky best for TV, miles more HD stuff.
Virgin best for broadband.

I pay through the nose to have the best of both.

yes its far too dear!!
