Hello everyone - i wonder if someone can help me. I bought Sky+ over a year ago and loved it for the first 9 months. It then developed a recording fault - especially when recording two programs simultaneously. When attempting to watch back the picture jumps with sound going completely out of sync making watching impossible.
I called Sky for technical help who guided me through the sky planner rebuild and system reset - alas to no avail.
Does anyone out there know of any glich or miracle cure to rectify this?

Technomate 1500ci+ super (upstairs), Phoenix Apollo MC (downstairs) both running off a cheapo 80cm dish with a twin output monoblock 13° & 19.2°. Sky+ (downstairs) piped 'round the house.

sounds like the hard drive may be failing?

Thanks for your replies. Sky engineer called on Saturday - agreed with diagnosis and replaced my old Amstrad box with a Pace system. All working fine now.
