    We have a Starview Box, which we had running fine until yesterday. Then it decided to lose a lot of the radio channels. I then thought right put it back to factory default settings, channels have now come back scrambled, or with $sign + some normal terrestial channels (not channel 4 . I went on System info, and it says that it is
    APl 2.57e_E
    Boot version 7.0

    Can someone help me IN very simple language - I am absolutely useless with technical jargon!!!! We did not get a disc or anything with the box. It is connected to an n*l cable. I have been trying to read some of the other threads, and saw that something called an EMU needed to be switched on????

    Thanks for your reply

    When I press the Menu button on the remote control, I get

    Channel edit
    User Setup
    Factory Setting
    System Information

    At the moment I am stuck in a circle, in the menu, and can't exit, so tomorrow I am going to disamantle the thing and then put it back together as the only way I can exit the menu is by switching it off at the mains, and I don't want to disrupt the programme on TV I'm taping at the moment.

    the reason why you did not get a disc is because , it has the latest firmware on the receiver

    do the following to get the $ channels on

    • Press menu (ignore what is on the screen) and press 1 5 7 0, this takes you to a secret menu,

    • Go down to emu and turn it on.

    then leave it on one of the channels with the $ sign, & it will update the receiver

    then enjoy watching
