have a problem with my DURABRAND (CG5660-M), I was trying to update the channels automatically , but the receiver stop working. The screen is giving the name of the receiver is asking for a pin code and does not respond to anything, I can't turn it off or bring anything into the screen. Can you advise how we can remove this and have the box working back to normal

sue may: Although having no personal experience of this device, they are however apparently notorious for this type of problem, have you tried the usual 0000 or 1234 codes? although the master code is stated as being 1998.

A remedy that many seems to find works is, press the standby button and immediately switch the boxes power off (or pull the power plug from the rear) then without waiting power the box up again and observe if the "first time installation" screen comes on.

You may have to try quite a few attempts at this, but its generally reported as eventually being effective.

STEVE: You can use a "generic programmable" remote, such as One-for-All | Universal Electronics .

Anyone else out there got an old remote to work one of these durabrand dinosaurs???
I have a one-for-all remote and the given code (1284) does not work. I'm stuck on the first time installation screen without a remote to use arrows.
