Thanks very much Linus, you're even more a hero!!.

Would it be worth adding a "if you screw up your box" bit to the
documentation? Maybe an FAQ.

That's a new one. We've never heard about such a problem before.

If you still have 2.5 installed in flash, do like this:

1 Start it

2 Press F1

3 Then press down, down, down, play, down, down, play, play. This should
reset the settings to the default values

4 Press stop, stop, and then hold stop until it start shutting off

5 Start it again and you should be fine

Good luck!

Linus
