      Sounds like its been zapped, yep probably a replacement in order. The warranty wouldn't cover lightening damage anyway you would have to claim on your house insurance. Happened to me a couple of years ago took out the Sky box, the answer phone and a rather expensive hifi system!

      Try power off/on. If that doesn't help, it's probably been "flashed" via the phone line. Ask Michael at Digifix if he can help:
      TV, VCR and Digibox (Satellite receiver) repairs, spares, sales - UK service
      He specialises in Sky+ repairs. If the Hard Drive is undamaged, you'll get to keep your recordings.
