Please help Boxee 1.2 update: catastrophic failure
Hi, would really appreciate some help!
After going through the forced update to the latest fw (i think it said 1.2) my boxee will not run it plays the opening logo then the screen goes black, the box then will not respond at all.
Its completely unusable now

Sorry for the inconvenience..
Please go to the recovery mode (Power off Boxee then Power up the Boxee Box by pressing and holding the power button for 6-10 seconds. Upon release, the Box will boot with the logo turned orange. )
Select Reset all settings and then login again ..
If you know the boxee box IP can you see if there are any boxee logs generated you could send me ?

thanks for responding, held the power button down for 10 seconds, the box is now flashing red/green and the box seems to be stuck at the 'loading' message screen.

please pull the power cord wait 30 seconds and try holding down for a max of 8 seconds

hopefully this is just me being clumsy, do i hold down the power untill the box turns orange then release, or release it after 8 seconds with then expect the logo to turn orange?

it is now flashing red x3 and green x1 before repeating the sequence, and still hangs at the loading screen
edit 2 second attempt got to the recovery screen, reset all settings and rebooted, seems to be working, its just booted so ive not tested everything.
thanks for your assistance. much appreciated
With respect to the other complaints about probs after forced fw updates and the whole slew of issues i noticed last time this happen can i suggest that fw updates are now optional whenever possible?
i would like to avoid having to worry every time a new update is released, in the event of it breaking the unit.

I've got the same issue and I keep trying to do what your saying Marcel and it's not working at all
pull power cord wait 30s, plug power cord back in, hold power down for 8 seconds and release - correct?
