    I'm seeing the green light for the telephone popping up more and more on ny Sky+ box. I've no idea what it's doing, but today my father told me we'd been engaged for 15 minutes (and we weren't using the phone so it must have been the Sky+ box)... I don't want my phone tied up and I don't want to pay for any calls... any one any info on this ?

    Dialling out shouldn't take more than a few minutes. Check the phone line from the Service Menu. You might have a faulty phone lead or Sky box.

    I rang Sky and they said it wasn't them! and if I wanted to disconnect the phone that wasn't a problem.

    I did this and the box still tries to dial out !!... have I got a poltergeist!

    Is there any PPV on your smartcard?
    If so the box will try to contact SKY to pass the info on, apart from that there shouldn't be any reason why the box should initiate a call itself.

    That aside the box would be making a freephone call IF it was contacting SKY and there wasn't any dubious prefixes entered into the SKY+:)

    I don't think you have anything to worry about unless the LED is annoying.

    It sounds as if the modem has gone. If you want to use the interactive or book PPV you will have to replace your Sky+. If not, and Sky have said you don't need to stay connected, just leave it unplugged from the phone socket.
