      When Sky+ Is Recording Picture Breaks Up !!!

      Hi guys,

      I think my box is on the way out and I would like to know what you think.

      When the box is recording the pictue on the other channels keeps breaking up and freezing slightly. The same fault appears on the recorded program !!

      The picture is fine when the box is not recording anything.

      I have changed the hard drive twice and all 3 drives give the same problem.

      Any ideas ?

      The box is an Amstrad.

      If I had to replace is a Pace a better brand.

      Thanks for listening

      Ask Sky to replace it if its under 12 months, But yes, The Pace PVR3 - Sky Anytime ready box is perfect, We have had our new one a while and no problems whatso ever

      What ever you do, don't get a Thomson box, I've had nine of them.

      Just an update on this.

      Followed the advice on the linked forum on my previous post and Sky came and installed a brand new Pace Sky+ box and replaced the LNB. All free of charge.

      Thank you Sky

      Hi, I'm visiting Sky User from the Digital Spy thread mentioned above. Please could everyone with this issue post their system details over on the DS thread as the data being collected there gives each of us the consumer leverage to get the problem sorted out.

      Also, here is a targetted link to the best advice on that large thread:
