How to Reset the Beyonwiz to Default Settings

This knowledgebase article is for the old DP and FV series Beyonwiz PVRs. For T4, T2 and T3 Beyonwiz models see here.

Normally you don't need to do a full factory reset to solve an IceTV problem but it can be required for other issues. The factory reset will require you to setup the Beyonwiz from scratch. You will need to search for the channels, set the clock, setup the network and then setup IceTV.

If you have not been asked to do a factory reset by technical support you might want to try these simple steps of clearing the guide and timers first.

Note: If have previously had trouble with a full channel search finding duplicate channels please do not reset your Beyonwiz without discussing the issue with support first.

If you do want to do the factory reset or were asked by technical support to do a factory reset, do the following:

Before you start please make sure that you know what your IceTV username and password are.
