Sky HD hanging on live pause


Standard Member
Just wondering if anyone else has had the same problem.
Intermittently when going to live pause I cannot get it started again. No remote control buttons work or any of the controls on the receiver.
I end up having to reboot a lot of the time or worst case miss the program as I cannot get it restarted.

Sounds like one of those annoying HD glitches that may be cured/prevented by a weekly Planner Re-Build.

If you haven't done one before....................

You need to access a hidden engineer’s menu.

DO NOT LOOK AT YOUR SCREEN as it will not appear to follow what you input.

Press Services – 4 – 0 - 1 – Select

Now you can look at the screen……………….choose option 7

Box will go to “Housekeeping” and shut down.

Leave it for 5 minutes then switch on shout YIPEE! when your problem is fixed.

A re-build-a-week keeps your box at it’s peak!

Cheers for that.
Just a question : Will this planner rebuild delete anything I have recorded?

Not as long as you make sure you choose option 7 at the end.

Option 8 would delete everything! :eek:
