Sky+ box is refusing to record..

I had My Name Is Earl set to record on E4 at 9..noticed at 9 that the little red light hadnt come on so I quickly changed over to e4 to see if the red r was there. It was..but E4 wouldnt come on..the banner said e4 and my name is earl..but the pic remained blue and the sound was still ITV.

I thought maybe just a bugger I cancelled it..and set it to record at 10 on e4+1..just came up and noticed no red light again and exactly the same problem.

Anyone ever had this happen to them?

if you do a power reboot to your box this should cure the problem.

put box on standby
then remove power
check connections at the back
plug back in and leave for MINIMUM of two mins before turning onto green from red.
