    hi everyone first post for me.
    a couple of questions,my sky+ box v1 has in the last month been playing up,ie
    freezing on playback,unable to fast forward without picture stuttering,and sometimes when playback button is pressed the last frame of the program that i was watching appears on my screen.is the 17min bug.
    is my harddrive knackered and need replacing or would i be better off getting v2 box.

    any help in this matter would be grateful :lease:

    Well first thing to do would be a basic reboot, OS reload and then if problems still persist a Full System Reset to wipe the hard drive to it's virgin state.

    An unmodified version1 box will not suffer from the 17min bug.
    It sounds like the HD could be on the way out, it's not expensive to replace the HD but the v1 box is a bit more tempermental in regards to RPM compared to the v2 boxes and you don't see many 5400rpm drives around arm.
    Check out the sticky thread:)
