      Noisy Sky + Box

      I'm sure this has been posted on here a million times before but would apreciate any help/advice. My old thomson Sky + box went kaput about a week ago. I had an engineer out last thursday who replaced the box with an amstrad (am pretty sure it's a refurb as it was a free call out after pleading poverty) and have been getting a very high pitched noise coming from the box every few minutes, it's a real pain and can be heard over the TV. Have tried a software update and still the same. I realise hard drives can make noise but I don't think this is normal.

      The engineer who came left his number with me as he also had to replace something on the dish (the lnd?) but i'm wondering would i be better getting in touch with him directly or just calling sky customer services, i heard somewhere that the engineers get some kind of bonus if the problem is resolved first time? i want it sorting asap as this noise is doing my head in already so which would be the best option to not get fobbed off?

      Thanks

      Ring the installer and explain, I would imagine he will call again to check & replace.
