      Sky+ restarts with hard disc upgrade (but was fine)

      Hi people, I have been coming to the forums for quite a few years and have always found the answer, but have now decided to join up as I have an issue thats really bugging me and I cant find the answer anywhere.

      Had a new sky+ box installed about a month ago (amstrad drx280), however with the high pitched squeal form the psu, a change of hard disc to the hitatchi hdp725050glat80 solved this problem and I was quite happy.

      All worked fine for three weeks or so, until the box decided to start restarting,this happens every time u put the box into standby, and intermittently while watching.

      Tried planner rebuild, full system reset forced software update and even copy plus but to no avail, the only thing that works is to put the original hard disc back, but that ear piercing squeal comes back. I have also tried a samsung spinpoint in the box but get the same restart problem as with the hitatchi.

      I just don't get why for three weeks it was fine and now its not!!

      Any ideas?

      Thanks,

      Lee.

      As far as I know, the Sky+ box will only recognise up to 250 GB. Whilst that SHOULDN'T make a difference, you never know.

      If you have one, put a sub-250GB disk in and see if that works.

      Regards,

      Felix
