    Firstly, don’t do the online software updates unless you know what you are doing and you know the box will support it. Some boxes have patched drivers and loading the online updates may brick the box. Like with any Satellite box, do not do a factory reset or restore factory settings – you will lose everything.

    Autobouquets will sort channels like on a Sky+HD box so you can enter the channel number direct, go up/down 1 channel at a time with the channel up/down button or press the main up/down buttons to show a list of favourite channels in the current group and pressing blue to show a list of favourite groups.

    Channel list and EPG is updated overnight, so leave the box powered up or it can miss an update. Press and hold the EPG button to see a list of available guides. With ViX images, a short press of the EPG button will give you their standard EPG display.

    If you have a HDD fitted, then you can set a timer recording from most EPG displays or start recording manually with the Rec button. To play a recording press the file button (usually between the Menu & Audio buttons).

    It’s good practice to take and keep an image backup in case you get corrupted firmware, copy this to your PC and keep it safe.

    More details about specific images can be found on their respective support forums. They may not answer questions about use of Chinese boxes if you have one, but searching through may help with specific information or problems.

    if it’s a lincsat box likely he’s put a backup on the internal hdd if one is installed ,if not
    you may find a suitable backup in downloads, failing that it’s reflashing with suitable image & setting up yourself, you need to say the box you’re using as clones can’t take certain images
