Press menu on your box or TV remote control. ...
Now select set-up, installation, update or similar option. If you're asked for a password ***** default code is 1234 or 0000. ...
Now select the 'first time installation' option (sometimes called 'factory reset', 'full retune' or 'default settings').

I THINK I WILL HAVE TO ABORT THIS AS I CANNOT FIND A MENU BUTTON THAT GIVES ME ACCESS TO THE SET UP AND IT IS GETTING A BIT COMPLICATED FOR ME TO UNDERSTAND
