      Just had Sky+ installed

      I've got one of the new(ish) Amstrad boxes (viewing card in the bottom right hand corner behind a flap) with the USB ports.

      Are these boxes ok? I've been reading about a lot of problems about Sky+ (typcially AFTER I had upgraded!) but the only slight problem I've had is that every now and again the recordings will play back in black and white for a couple of seconds, but it's only done it about 3 times so far and I've watched over 6 hours of recorded programs.

      Thanks in advance for any reasurring words!

      I have one of those boxes, and I havnt had any problems with it. Though that black and white viewing for a couple seconds sounds wierd. may just be the box trying to catch up perhaps. Still, if it keeps it up, I would try sending an email to the tech support people. See what they say. May just need software download.

      Thanks for the info.

      I wonder whether the black and white thing is caused by me messing around with Sky+ while it's recording! (ie...pausing live TV etc, just because I can)
