Went to change channel after viewing a recorded movie on sky+ last night but the screen went clear and a message saying tecnical fault with this ch and every other one. Went into set up to see if signal was there and it was but noticed that the network ids and transport streams were blank. Any ideas what caused this. Done a forced download and everything was fine again.

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

Dear me John, that is a classic example of a (don't shout it) glitch
Seems like lot's of things these days have them. An associate of mine at work slightly longer in the tooth than me but still shit hot at programming (old school) swears that the newer methods of software testing are to blame. Nobody has the time or financial resources to test anything thoroughly before release that is why Beta versions exist to allow the general public to debug them for free.

Frightening really, these Sky+ boxes are costing me a lot of money in terms of the amount of return visits I need to make, pretty close to ceasing the supply again. Had stopped supplying the Mk1 box, but had thought that the Mk2 box and software was better. :(

Yeah, if they had an Ethernet port, you could fix them from home... :-doh!

And knowing the world at large if they had an ethernet port probably converting them to provide other far more useful functions :rolleyes:

So Im Fu**ed in other words. And I thought that with Flash Wizzard Pro My finger was safe from holding down that button. Ah well. Oh it went again last night. Going to find a small window to F***it out.
