Sky+ Freezing and out of sync

Recently I've noticed that my Sky+ picture freezes for a second or two and then the audio is out of sync for another couple of seconds - it then clears up. This seems to happen on various channels and even when I am not recording anything.

I have an Amstrad Sky+ box which is approx. 6 months old.

Does anyone else have the same problem or is my box / hard disk on the way out ?

This sounds familiar. I have always put stuttery broadcasts down to atmospherics but maybe I am being a little generous as there could well be a whole host of other explanations.
However I was annoyed to say the least when I played back a recorded film the other night only to find the lip synching was out by in excess of a second (certainly more than my Denon receiver could rectify). In truth it rendered the film all but unwatchable.

You can log a call stating the vertical banding problem as an issue and try and get swapped out for a pace box. However there should be a firmware upgrade out for the timing issue soon...
