Grundig Digibox

I have had sky installed for about 9 months now and we started having problems with our Amstrad box not coming out of standby etc....this was replaced by a grundig box by sky, we then found that this box would switch to interactive every five mins or so and would not allow us to use sky box office over the telephone line, with a error message saying "ensure that a telephone line is connected" even though in the system test it says that there is a line connected. Spoke to sky and they sent out an engineer which replaced the box yet again for another grundig box but different model...and in silver (which impressed the missus) This box again will give us the same problems with sky digital and another fault has appeared that when using RGB mode on my DVD player it will not output RGB to the TV although the other boxes did......!!

Any help appreciated
