    Can't help technically, but have found that eBay is a good source for digiboxes if you're careful to purchase from sellers with a long and positive history.

    There is a technical issue with some Pana models and RGB, they can be fixed but considering the cost of used hardware or a £65 call out (probable refurb swap out) then it might not be viable.
    I assume the digibox is no longer covered by the 12 month warranty?

    unfortunately it's now 2 years old. i just got an lcd screen so i am trying to get the best picture from the skybox. sounds like getting a new one is the best option. unfortunately because i live in a flat (and have a communal dish) i can't just get sky+ :mad:

    thanks for the reponses

    Of course if you can prove to a Small Claims court that the Panasonic had a design flaw from the time it was released then the 6year "fit for use" part of the sales of goods act would come into play that's assuming the retailer and Panasonic themselves refuse to accept the problem is a design flaw.
    No expert on this sort of consumer law but the CAB could help.
