    Sky HD box starting to do our head in now.

    Every so often the box freezes and then turns itself off. Anyone else having this problem.

    We have to wait a few minutes before the box can be turned back on/

    Cheers

    No both my boxes are fine

    How long have you had the box? Have you tried a forced update?

    We are on our secodn box at the moment.

    First one just turned itself off one day and wouldn't come back on. Sky replaced the box with a new one. Engineer said Thomson HD box was never throughly tested befor release.

    Done a forced update but it still does it.

    If i ring Sky adn it needs changing again will i get a new one or a repaired one. Got the original at the beginning of December and the replacement in January.

    You'd hope they would give you a new one, the only way to find out is with a nice phone call to sky

    good luck

    I got my box in early Dec too, and it's doing the same. Almost always crashes when I delay watching a program for 2 or 30 minutes. I prefer to start watching a program after that amount of time so I can FFWD the advers, and catch up to real time by the end of the show.

    It's getting beyond a joke now though, so I called them. They made me do the rebuild procedure, but if it happens one more time I want a new box.
