To restore your SKY On Demand box from the reboot, you will need to do a basic reset to restore your box to factory setting.

  1. Restart the box by turning the box off and on from the rear panel’s power switch. Blue screen with SKY logo will appear.
  2. When black screen or "no display" appears on the screen, wait for the red power icon on the box's LED display to blink (around 15 seconds), then press the “arrow down” key found on the front panel of the box for two seconds.
  3. Immediately press keys: “2”, “4”, “8”, “5” on your remote control.
  4. The LED display on the front panel will change to “FACT” signifying that the box has been reset to factory settings.
  5. The box will resume boot-up. When the channel scan pop-up message appears, press OK to scan channels.

If this fails to resolve the issue, you may need to do a more comprehensive reset.

Step 1: Download the Digibox Software Update

    1. Plug it into your PC and check storage details under Removable Stage. It should have at least 100MB free space.
    2. Right-click on the "USB Drive” icon then select “Properties” to see the file system of the USB.
    3. This File system has to be “FAT32”. If it is, proceed to download; otherwise, you need to reformat the USB.

    1. Unzip the downloaded file: MR100_V6.1_rel.zip then save/ transfer filename: “INSPUR_9642C_UPDATE.DAT” to USB drive directly (it should be in the default directory of the USB drive, don’t save/transfer it inside a folder of the USB drive).
    2. The unzipped file is “INSPUR_9642C_UPDATE.DAT” shall be the software to be loaded to your SODv2 box.
Step 2: Update your SKY On Demand Box's Software
  1. Insert the device into the USB port of your SKY On Demand Box
  2. Simultaneously press the box's "POWER ON" switch at its rear panel and the "CHANNEL UP" button (in the middle of the front panel).
  3. Release the buttons when "Starting Loader" appears on your TV screen.
  4. Your TV screen will display "USB UPGRADE" along with a status bar of the software upgrade. While the upgrade is in progress, do not turn off your box.
Step 3: Reset your YouTube App
  1. Make sure that the box is connected to Wi-Fi or LAN.
  2. Launch the YouTube App using the "YOUTUBE" button on your remote control.
  3. Skip "SIGN IN" and select "SETTINGS."
  4. Go to "Reset App" and press "OK."
  5. Press "OK" to continue reloading the app. Once the app reset is done, it will return to the Sign In screen.
