Here is the description for the process on how to recover box, which is stuck on boot logo:

Step 1: Recovery bootloader repair.

Download this file and extract to an empty SD card:
droidtv-boot-recovery.zip (5.9 MB)
https://mega.co.nz/#!lpJDGDBJ!b8UP-ygGFn...hFvXKlcE5Y (5mb)

(Your SD card should have two files: u-boot.bin and recovery.img)

Insert the SD card into your BOX and boot the BOX holding the reset button located in the A/V port on the back of the device.
You must hold this button with a toothpick while applying power to the device for about 10 seconds and then release the button. You will see the “DroidTV” logo appear on the screen. After about 10-12 seconds you will be presented with the Android recovery menu.
Your boot loader is now repaired. Please unplug your unit (Your remote control will not be functional until after the next step).

Step 2: Install latest firmware you have previously downloaded.
You will need to install the latest firmware on your DroidTV to prevent your device from having the boot lock problem in the future.
The latest firmware can be found here:

Hi there,
from the boot menu select Update from EXT / Update from SD Card and then select the
DroidTV firmware ZIP file.
Let us know if that helped.

Box is frozen on the home screen. I have tried the SD card/toothpick thing but nothing happens. Help! Please explain in simple language as I am not very techno-savvy. Thanks.

Further to my last post, I get as far as the system recovery page but can't move the highlighter at all and the robot is flat on his back. The following is written:
Finding update package,,,,,,
Installation aborted.....
Formatting/cache.....
Cache wipe failed......

The installation of the latest updates was already done 3 days ago. Please advise.

Looks like you are selecting the wrong file. You must download the firmware zip and EXTRACT it ones. inside there will be 4 files. one of them(the biggest one) will be another .zip or .fw. This should work.
Please let us know if that helped.

Anatoly
