Just to finish this thread, thanks to all for your help and 
suggestions.  I got it all back as it was before, it was relatively 
straightforward in my case, none of the hardware or software was changed 
and using flirc, all the configuration was stored on the device so no 
messing about with keystrokes.  Also, I now have a clonezilla image of 
the root disk, not going to get caught like this again!
