SKY+ Displaying Wrong Time



I have a new Sky installation(2weeks) which is brilliant, but I have an annoying problem that happens from time to time.

When I go through the search and scan banner and notice something that I would like to watch I press select to view the program it is something different, I noticed that it is down to the time being displayed is wrong. This is happenning a couple times a week and it messes up the recording of programs then It fixes itself.

Has anyone come across this, and how is it rectified?

yeah ive had this happen 3 times in the past month on my amstrad box, maybe a full system reset will sort it out, havnt tryed it myself yet.

this is a known problem with amstrad boxes, i was talking to someone with sky on another matter and he mentioned this problem with sky boxes loosing time, they are working on a fix,


Time loss can be in two different forms. If it is a straight loss of a few minutes on the search and scan banner, just play back a few seconds of a previuosly recorded program, the go back to the original screen. If you also get stuck on searching for lidtings you will have to do a reboot by unplugging from the mains.
