The Reset screen lets you restart the receiver, reset to factory defaults, or reset everything. "Restart Receiver" is the same function as pressing the red reset button behind the access card door on the front of the receiver. This option does not affect your settings and scheduled recordings. "Reset Defaults" erases all of your personal preference items, such as parental controls, favorites, language and scheduled recordings, and restores the receiver configuration to how it was set at the factory. "Reset Everything": Completely erases everything from system memory and starts over like a new receiver. WARNING: All your recordings will be erased from the hard drive!
Note: If Parental Controls are locked, you must enter your password to reset the receiver. Access Card Standard -Definition DVRs
