      Viewing problems on my sky+ box

      Hi,

      Maybe an easy one to answer.
      Have a Thompson Sky+ Box, approx 5 yr old which has recently started to have viewing problems, however the last couple of days, we have had interupted and intimitant viewing. All channels say the usual, No sat Sig being received and notice that the on screen clock is exactly 1 hour behind. All channels don't work apart from the ITV channels, 1, 2, 3 & 4.

      Tried the restore and wiping the hard drive. Worked for 5 or so minutes so I could catch up with Sky News about Mr Jackson Cardiac arrest, checked the signal in the services screen which looked good, then the system crashed and I can only view the ITV channels.

      Does the box need replacing as I seem to have a pciture and the dish is a communal one and other residents have no viewing issues - pls help, baby sitting tomorrow and need the kids channels to keep them occupied!!

      Thanks,
      Peter & Sarah

      Probably just the usual PSU fault. Easy to fix.
