      Amstrad DRX280 Problem

      Hi,

      I just bought a second Sky+ box from eBay, and set it up nicely (called sky, paired card etc). I thought it was all working fine, but then I discovered that the second tuner seems to have died. It says 'Not Locked' and has 0 signal strength and quality. I've swapped the cables round, so I know for a fact both feeds are just fine.

      I've done a full system reset, and a new installation, all to no avail.

      Anyone have any more suggestions?

      Thanks

      I managed to swing a free engineer visit because I'm still within 30 days of contract. This, despite the box being out of warranty = win.

      Engineer arrived today at 9am. Very polite guy. Much better than the last Sky cowboy! (He was also much older... coincidence? )

      Anyway, I'm now rocking a new Amstrad DRX280!

      He said the tuners failing is quite a common problem, and was more than happy to give me a new box
