    long thread title i know but while channel surfing the other day it locked up on the HD channels i basically got a stuck HD movies 1 picture and some sound from HD movies 2. i had to reset the box to get it back on now could it be me that was flicking too fast and jammed it up or is it a problem??

    also i noticed last night that the movie channels SD and HD went blocky at the bottom of the picture is this normal ? i.e does this happen sometimes

    cheers for any help

    Welcome to the wonderful world of Sky HD box software. :D It seems lockups are a fact of life, and I have found that multiple inputs from the remote can trigger misbehaviour.

    Haven't had the blocking though - sounds like a signal strength thing - was it raining at the time?

    Check your connections - if there is even a slightly loose connection you will get a freeze and sometimes a message no satelite signal.
