My GDS 300 recently showed signs of wearing out, mainly
turning itself off and losing it's RF output and sound settings.

The man turned up and provided a replacement - an even older
GDS 200!

I phoned Sky who said "It works now doesn't it......."

It's a bit bad is the SLY warranty service, 65 dollar for some chave to storm through yer house and swap yer box (or LN:cool: and on the off chance the cable, £89 aint bad for a new box, you can get SLY to pair the card to the new box over the phone!

A little victory!

Some interesting info in this thread but in the end I got it all free.

After they had written back to me telling me how wonderful a
recon box was I wrote a very polite but very firm letter saying
that I remained unhappy with the situation.

Within days I got a letter saying that a man would be round in a
further few days with a brand new box. I now have two both under
12 month warranty.

The only bad/good (?) news is that my daughter who precipitated
all this activity and wanted multiroom has now decided to leave home........!
