hiya folks, i wonder if i may appeal to you helpful chaps for a bit of advice. A friend of mine has given me his old D box (sagem 2 chip variant apparentley??), it all worked as it should when he was first using it - however, during one drunken brain storm he thought he'd have a go at getting himself a few more channels! I know - never a good idea to try and be technical when your under the influence! Basically he did a re-scan (he may or may not have changed a few settings along he way - he's not technically minded so i wouldn't put it past him), and ended up loosing all but the free to air channels. He's since bought a Starview box and i gained the D box. I'm already a legit cable customer so this is simply going to be an added box for me, so Ive managed to get hold of a three way splitter (saw a cable van and asked the guy nicely for it), and I'm going to have a bash and splitting the signal this week. Now obviously - Ive not set this D Box up yet... but Ive got a net connection to get hold of anything i may need... and I'll be linking the Box to my LAN. i know this question is a bit like the old 'how long is a piece of string'.... but are there any useful tips to restoring the box back to its original state?? Any settings to look out for? Also, is there a diagnostic mode that i can access that will tell me whats wrong or whats been changed? Ive not got any manuals with the box so I'm totally in the dark and looking for a starting point really. any advice at all would be extremely welcome. thanks all Lee. PS - Sorry to be a pain in the arse, i know this is a n00b question!
