Sky+ box. Following a power cut I have lost Sky+ functions.

Customer Question

Sky+ box. Following a power cut I have lost Sky+ functions. I can still get all the channels. But when I try to access any of the Sky+ functions, like pause, record or planner I get the following onscreen message - A Sky+ error occurred. Press SELECT to restart. Press BACK UP to continue without Sky+ functionality. I can get the channels without Sky+ when I press BACK UP. But if I press SELECT the system closes down and the box won't switch on again for hours. When I eventually get the box to switch on again it displays the same message all over again. How do I get the Sky!+ box to unfreeze and restore Sky+ functionality?

Hello

Thanks for the Question

Is the box your own one now ?

Have you tried a full reboot by unplugging it from wallpower waiting mins then replugging back in again?

Yes it is.

Yes. A number of times. Each time I do this it takes hours to get the box to unfreeze and come back on again.
