HOW CAN WE HELP YOU?

Factory reset your box
We hope you never need to do this but if your box has an issue that can’t be fixed, you have the option to factory reset the box.
  1. What is a factory reset?
    This is an option in the settings menu that restores your box back to its original factory settings, deleting all your recordings and preferred settings.
     
  2. Important information
    How to keep your recordings
    Factory resetting your box deletes all your recordings and preferred settings. We understand how important recordings are to our customers, so we have another option to factory reset your box but still keep your recordings. Read our Maintenance Mode FAQ for more information.
