Sometimes the signal indicators can be misleading.


Does it actually do the job. Try watching one programme and recording another. Then record two at once. If it does this okay then don't worry too much at the moment.

PS NO NEED TO SHOUT - lower case is just fine

Sounds like a faulty box, I presume that you have tried swapping the inputs?

Do A software reboot and they should appear. Thats after you know that power is coming in on both cables. To do a software reboot, hold the back up button down on the receiver, then disconnect the power lead form mains while holding the back up button down, count to 10 and put power lead back in until you see info on screen saying software programming, then let the back up button go. Should be ok now, always works for me. Lets know how you get on.

Still sounds to me like the box is faulty, but last resort is to go into Services/ System Setup/ 01Select/Full System Reset.

If that doesn't work, then the box probably needs repairing.

No, it isn't the same as a software download, this purges the harddrive and recording history. But I think that you will probably end up sending it back, remember to remove your card when you do. :)

plus if a recording does not start or anythink to do with record it says no signal being received may be its a sky problem there end but may be not may i have to look into a technomate but will i have to change the dish and do you need a subscription of any sorts with them i am begining to hate sky

You can record two programmes, but I think you have to watch one while its been recording.

It is the box, it is because you have no second input, or at least the box thinks that you don't.

Think you better send the box back. You would get a message to contact sky if recording wasnt activated on your card.
