    Ive been watching sky today for quite a bit and about 6 or 7 times i have had t switch the box off at the wall for a couple of minutes becuase it has completely frozen. It happened a couple of months ago but then suddenly stopped. Its started again though. Ive told lots of people about this - some people have said to try and shorten the lnb cable etc. People have also told me to reset the box and i did this but about an hour later it went dead.

    I'll probably have to get in a sky engineer. I know they charge 64 quid to come out BUT ive been told if you threaten to cancel they will sort the prob for free

    PS- i have had sky for about three years... :suicide:

    Had a similar problem a while back - ended up (after 3 boxes) needing a dish/LNB re-alignment. It was around the time the cards were changed so I made a lot of fuss about that when making phone calls.

    I did start off though by phoning up to cancel ;) Never paid for a call-out or replacement part once :smashin: Guess if they'd called my bluff I would either have looked a bit silly or ended up without Sky. Having just cancelled today it would probably have been the latter.
