As a new Customer, you clearly aren't getting what you signed up for, so best to call BSkyB and get them to resolve the matter.

With regard to the cause, it sounds like the "new" Box is faulty. It is not beyond the bounds of possibility that the Installer has fobbed you off with a Box that isn't exactly new.

Was there an outcome to this?

Your other Topic about setting up your Sony Bravia prompted me to recall you'd had another issue recently.
