      Sky+ HD turned itself off mid-program??

      Hi All

      thanks for any advice given

      last night whilst watching the darts, my sky+ HD box turned itself off then back on again....although when the box came back on it came on with a black screen with what i can remember basically was the start screen from when the engineer installed the box... it was a black screen with white writing just saying Sky+ HD and after a few mins it went to channel 999 (or something) and said searching for listings...so from what i can figure out it basically reset itself i have not lost any recordings or reminders...

      any after that everything was ok....until this morning i get a call from 'the wife' saying the TV is not working the green light is on the sky box but nothing is happening...any i told her to take power cable from back leave for two mins the reconnect the power cable and try again.....that worked

      so basically im asking is this something i need to worry about or keep an eye on?? its a new amstrad box only had i a few weeks as a replacement for a old faulty thompson HD box..

      Many Thanks

      Carl

      Box reboots are not uncommon, especially after an automatic software update. Don't worry about it, unless it becomes a regular occurrence.
