    hi chaps recently upgraded my sky + box with a maxtor160gb 5400rpm 2 mb ata133d-max16 4r160lo, which died on me !!
    returned the hdd and got a replacement this morning put the drive in my box and i cant record and ive noticed that the signal 2 bit in the menus was blank!.
    so i did a reset then house keeping but to no avail so i put the old 40 gig original and hey presto everything works!! have i got a duff maxtor drive??

    Possibly as one of the symptoms of loss of signal in input 2 is a duff HD.
