A reset may delete your recordings and log you out of your apps.

The best way to reset your TV box is using the buttons on the box. This will give you the best chance of keeping your recordings and scheduled recordings on the Box Pro, and personal settings for both boxes. You may have to do this if your box has frozen.

If you've bought any films on your EE TV box, please allow 24 hours after the reset for your 'Purchases' to reappear.
