Both Sky+ boxes not working ?


Active Member
Hi All

My Sky+ box in the lounge won't turn on, ie the red light is on, and remote or pushing the on button doesn't turn it on and green as usual

I tried power cycling it, still no joy.

I then went and tried the sky+ box in the other room and it's not switching on either.

Has anyone any ideas ?

I hadn't even been watching sky at all today, just thought I'd put the telly on a few mins ago.

Is it something obvious I have missed or have both my Sky+ boxes got the same fault at the same time (seems unlikely to me)?

My Sky+ hung this morning - I had to pull the power lead out, wait a few seconds then power back up again and wait for the usual startup. It looks like Sky had pushed out an update during the night.

I wonder if your boxes have taken a bigger disliking to the update.

(I've got a Pace2 with a 250GB drive).

No problem :smashin: - with the number of times you have to pull the power lead out to do a full restart you would have though Sky would have added a proper power switch by now.
