THOMSON DTi-550 freeview box reset

We have a THOMSON DTI 550 freeview box on a TV that's mainly used by our children (to end the TiVo vs CBeebies arguments !)

I was watching it last night and while flicking through channels on QVC it popped up a dialog offering to upgrade SW (from 2.1 to 2.7 IIRC). Pressed OK to start this and went away as it said it would take 10mins and I didn't really need to watch someone on QVC explaining how a scanner worked! Came back after a bit to find FV box on "standby" (red LED not green on front) and totally non-responsive to the remote.

Anyone got any ideas if there's a way to reset or has it upgraded itself to brick mode?

Seems to be a common problem - two friends at work with Thomson boxes have suffered the same fate over the last year. It seems it can't cope at all well with firmware updates.
