i get drop outs of sound and pops every so often, when wathing a channel live it seems fine but if i rewind and watch from the hd i have those problems. i would assume that itd be recording from the same tuner as i was watching. am i right in thinking that this is an hd problem rather than a lnb/dish alignment problem? i only bought it yesterday and had it installed today so can recall the bloke to realign the dish if necessary. if its an hd problem then i could return the sky plus box but since ive a 250 gb maxline hd on order i think i'll just bung that in the pace v2 box.
