    Recently I have become concerned about the rate at which my Sky+ box scrolls through the channels to find TV listings.

    I press the up or down arrows on the remote to look what is on other channels and when I hold either button down the speed at which it scrolls through channels is phenomenal, It can get through around a hundred channels in about five seconds. Could this in some way cause damage my Sky+ box as it is worrying me?

    Just press the button once, how long does it take to react?
    I think you are seeing the remote sending out multipule signals (while you keep pressure on the sky) and the SKY+ buffers the commands then after a slight delay executes the buffer and you see the result in one continuous operation.
