To reset a UTV Ultimate TV receiver you must first place the receiver into standby, meaning that power is applied, but the receiver is off such that the power indicator light is not on.

Using the remote in DIRECTV or SAT mode, press the digits corresponding to the specific codes below.

When the receiver accepts a code, the lights on the front panel will flash briefly.


7264 - Clears the settings for telephone dialing script, forcing the receiver to dial a 1-800 number to connect to WebTV.

(does not clear dialing options)


12357 - This is like 7264, but it also clears the other dialing options and enables audible dialing.

(I use this as a typical hard boot)


5309 - Invokes a bootrom connection to the WebTV service. Serves as a safeguard to allow corrupted client software to update/correct itself via dialup.


55325532 - Recreates drive partitions for DVR programming.

(this will delete all your saved data)


32768 - USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!

last resort clearing of non-volatile RAM settings

(receiver must be unlocked or the red front panel light will flash 5 times)


I hope this helps people out there.

Enjoy...


P. S. There are more codes out there.

Unplug the power ... wait ... plug the power back in.

Since my upgrade, it is rather easy to hear the drive seeking. So, the question is, since I never hear it stop seeking (even in standby mode), what is it doing, and what safeguards are there so unplugging the power does not happen at the worst time, like in the middle of a file system update. I would never have the guts to pull the plug on a windows system if I could hear the hard drive seeking. This is the same software company, right :)
