Live pause issue

I've got a Sky 2TB box with wireless built in.

Just recently when I do a live pause for twenty minutes or so and start playing again (so starting 'chasing playback'), about half an hour into the playback the box will just pause and won't continue to play. It says 'press SKY' but when I do that the playback is cancelled and my box goes back to live TV.

Any thoughts anyone?

I get that now and again on my 1TB box - PITA
Sometimes I have to re-boot to clear it :mad:

I wonder if your box is reaching its instant rewind limit before you resume playing.

Go to Options > Sky+Setup > Instant Rewind.
And change it to 60 minutes, the default is 30 for some reason.

Or is it already set to 60 minutes?

It was set to 30 mins so I've set it to 60 mins...will see what happens?

Had Sky freeze again yesterday when trying to do a small rewind to check what a guy had said.
Total freeze - Had to turn off at the mains etc to get it operational again :mad:
