It sounds like you may getting confused with the DVB logo, which is just the logo for Digital Video Broadcasting. It looks like DV3.

The model number is usually on the rear, or the underside of the box.

does it look like this box? If it is menu-setup-help press green button then red for a full reset. Any recordings will be deleted.

You don't need to lose all the recordings on the DTI-6300 G1's to perform a software re-installation - and trust me, I know something about it. You can also perform other non-deletion actions on the G1's (and G2's) which may help resolve issues.

it's a 160GB G1 in that case. I am part of the software development team for these boxes.

Go to set-up, help and then press the blue button to enter the tuning information screen; go through the channels, and see if any are picking up a signal on either tuner.

We are solely responsible for the software, the hardware is (well, was, the 6300 along with the 6021 is now discontinued) developed by Technicolor im afraid. Though having said that, on the G2 and Vestel boxes, we have managed to lower the fan noise/speed for LPMA, but the hardware within the G1's does not allow this im afraid.
