Sky HD box not allowing me to change channels when Recording a programme


Standard Member

Wondering if someone could help. this problem only started happening tonight, I was recording something on ITV, seemed to be working fine so watched something else but as soon as I went to ITV it would not allow me to turn the channel over. I have since tried recording things on other channels with the same result I cannot watch anything else.

Is the box broke or is there a simple way to fix the problem?

It sounds like you need to reset your box. Just unplug the mains lead, plug back in and wait a minute or so before switching on again. This usually does the trick (crossed fingers)!
