      Recording issues - interested in getting some opinions on cause

      Hi All,

      About 6 months ago we had some problems and got a new SKY+ box as a result (Pace 6.3.06, EPG Software 5.04.e). Now recently, we've had some problems - I'm interested in knowing what you guys think. The weather where I live has been pretty horrendous lately but I don't think this is the reason for these particular issues.

      - When recording the channel I am watching, if I switch channels then I am faced with a blue screen and audio from the channel I was previously watchin (i.e. channel change not working properly.
      - Not recording programs from the planner if I am not watching them.

      The issue MAY be temporarily resolved by turning the system on/off but this is occurring pretty much all the time.

      Interested in knowing where the fault could be. The signal is great (almost full bar) so I'm guessing it's the box.

      Regards

      Assuming that you have no other Digibox* connected to the same LNB, then the logical conclusion is that your Sky+ box is faulty. I can't see how a faulty LNB or cable could produce your symptoms.

      *Disconnect it if you have.

      Thanks very much for your feedback sir.

      I don't know if I am imagining this but programs which are on the planner seem to record perfectly fine whereas other items (in promptu recordings) are not.
