    Just got a Standard Sky box installed - its a Pace DS440N ..... it constantly makes a screeching noise ..... is this normal ??

    PS - Have read many posts about Sky Installers being a nightmare ..... mine was perfect !!

    The guy rung us the day before and booked in a 2 hour slot .... arrived promptly ..... installed everything quickly and cleanly ..... explained all the functions and controls ..... and left us very impressed and pleasantly surprised :)

    No its not normal, get them back ASAP.

    My box did the same thing a few years ago, and was down to a faulty capacitor.

    Before you do that you should try a force update first.

    Cheers, Franc

    How will a forced update repair a faulty capacitor?
