box sometimes locks up switching channels is it me or the box ????


Novice Member
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.
