Hi, looking for some advice please if poss'

I have an out of warranty/contract amstrad pvr3, I decided to use it on media centre.

Problem is, no signal, both inputs not locked, tried doing "hold left and right "buttons and "backup" button while power up, to no avail.

The hold left and right button procedure takes around a minute for the ring to reverse flash, I press select but both red and green lights come on, I am led to believe this is a failure?

Checked the lnb can see no problems, the setup worked fine when I was with sky, only left them about six months ago. The whole box, menu's power up etc seem very slow. To top it all off I lost the remote as well lol.

Is it ready for the bin?

Thanks

Can you borrow a box to test your signal, or alternatively take your box to a known working dish?
