Don't worry, the nice men in white coats will take us all to a place where we won't be bothered by the red dot any more. :)

Just press the backup button DUH
no need to load it all up or log onto this and then press that, its a simple push on the backup button, its not rocket science,

and yes if u keep pressing the buttons over and over the digi box over heats and crashes, not always the case but it does happen and can damage bits inside,
Don't make yourself look anymore of a twit than you already have done.

Your digibox uses buttons on the front panel.  Now holding them all in at the same time is more likely to make it overheat than using the remote, as is putting it in a greenhouse on June 21st.

The only way your remote is going to damage your digibox is if you hit the unit very hard, very persistantly and very recklessly with said remote.

You may like to know that the more times you press Backup the more quickly your battery is used.  So in future may I suggest pressing Red and then Backup which will remove the red dot until you change away from Challenge.

Now which part of this concept do you not understand?  You press two buttons at the start of viewing Challenge and no need to press anything else until you change channels.  For your method, you have to press Backup at least four times a hour when viewing Challenge, at the end of each commercial segment.  You can press Backup every 15mins until the cows come home but you'll need to replace your batteries sooner.

Oh and the box crashes because it is the software present.  Although judging by the way you seem to operate your hardware, you deserve all the crashes you get :p
Yes I'm still here. Do you know who I am?

Alright calm it down, I think most of us now fully understand what will be called forever more as the Red Button Dilemma.

So lets calm and watch KM on Challenge and KNOW we can exterminate the little red dot that has upset the masses in such a great way.

Keep Britains moral up!  Kick the red button out!

I agree with Kieran. It's the season of goodwill, let's not get too excited over the red button, since we have the technology to rid ourselves of the evil fiend.

Thank you for your support James, but couldn't you have said that in one post  :P

When I see three posts in a row from the same person I think "Oohhhh something new...".  Then disappointment :(

Still, glad the dot has been kicked out of Britain for good, and no more handbags at 10 paces etc.

Start the year as we mean to go on  :D
