    hi all my (v1) unaltered sky plus box has decided it no longer wants to play ball.

    This may not be of much comfort, but my poor old Pace v1 box died last month in a similar way to yours.
    After waiting for 45 minutes in the Sky help line phone queue and then trying all the standard reset stuff they decided it was terminal and my only option was to pay them £65 for a guaranteed on-site repair - saying that if the engineer couldn't fix my box he would replace it with another refurbished unit.
    Anyway, the engineer turned up and instantly condemed my old box and replaced it with a brand spanking new Pave PVR3, so £65 not too badly spent. :)
