When you say "...back to life...", do you mean you want to ready it to steal TV again? Or do you mean you want to receive free-to-air satellite TV? If the former, you won't find help on this forum. If the latter, let us know what trouble you are experiencing. Many here can help.
Ahh...you've answered the question in Post #2 when you mentioned dongle. You better run since a moderator will soon chop you off at the legs as talk about theft of television signals is not allowed on this forum.
