    Whats happening is that on any channel except 998 and 999 the box works fine for about 10sec, then the picture momentary freezes, then catches up. This repeats its self a couple of times,then the box resets itself. I’ve called sky and they will replace the box on Wednesday but I'm curious as to why 998 and 999 are not similarly affected?

    PS tried all the usual cures, master reset, forced download etc.. With no effect.

    This is probably because these channels are not recorded on to the hard disk with live pause etc. Try removing live pause, that might at least let you watch Sky until Wednesday though you probably won't be able to record.

    Ok, worked out how to turn off live pause and that has fixed it. So I figure the disk is duff. Anyway the box is still under warrantee so I'll wait till wednesday.
