I have had my new Sky+ Amstrad box for less than 3 weeks and I have experienced my first failed recordings, how come I ask my Sky+ box, it answers me back with Unknown Reason. I immediately tried to record another programme which also failed yet I was watching Sky+ at the time. I then set two programmes to record at same time which I know Sky+ does, interestingly after the recording it told me one had recorded but the other had clashed, how come I am left asking myself. It was very dense fog last night where I live, could that have been the problem? Signal Quality at the time was around 60-70% on both inputs. I thought this was not supposed to happen as it records to a Hard Drive so there should be no real reason for failure. I now only have two programmes stored in my Planner as Recorded which take up 12% of drive space yet Sky+ tells me I have 78% free, should that not be 88%. I am currently engaged in a planner rebuild which seems to have locked out my Sky+ box at present, I assume this procedure takes a bit of time. Sky+ now available, however it now says 83% free, highlighting each programme shows that part of HD space used but at the end there is 5% of dark blue suggesting to me drive has been used but can't recover this area, could this mean drive damage? I also have noticed that when you have dark scene on any channel I notice faint vertical bars throughout most of the screen. I have checked all cables and they are all secure. My Signal Strength for both Inputs is 100% and my Quality for both inputs varies between 50% and 90%. On my previous Sky digibox the quality was always around 85% and never varied yet it does on Sky+, weird. Any ideas, do I have a faulty box. Thanks in advance for any advice given.
