Hey there all,

I have a 2 year old Sky HD box and when ever I playback recordings I am noticing a Juddery playback, not major but enough to really bother the hell out of me....

Can anyone offer any advice to fix this, in going to reformat the the drive in a bid that this might help?

Does this happen when you are watching live as well. Also is it particularly worse on HD content?
Is the SKY Box output going directly to the TV or via an AV receiver using HDMI ?

To fully format the HDD you will need to remove it from the Sky box and attach it to a PC. The Sky box does not have an option to format the HDD, the nearest thing on the Sky box is a reset which merely wipes the file allocation tables similar to a quick format on a PC.
