Analogue Teletext

Any suggestions as to why I should have suddenly lost analogue teletext on a Sky box?

Analogue terrestrial is no problem, neither is digital teletext on Sky (or Freeview for that matter) but on one of my Sky boxes (I have multiroom and the other one is OK) I can no longer get analogue teletext.

The particular channel I have suddenly lost is Euronews. Don't know if this is the only one, as I've never found another channel with analogue teletext.

Can you retune as Teletext can be fickle about the strength and accuracy of a signal.

I know I can adjust the frequency of the Sky channels, but I would have thought that the satellite signal itself is so critical that any frequency drift would show up in the picture, at the very least as a few sparklies.

Just unplug the Sky DigiBox from the mains, Wait 10 Seconds, Reconnect & Switch back on and it should be back, My DigiBox does this every 3 months or so.

Thanks MCE2K5. Never thought of anything as simple as a box reset!
