Hi, had a powercut that lasted about 3 hours last week and that evening my wife and kids tried to watch something that we had recorded earlier that week. However they couldn't play any of the recorded programmes at all and the box 'froze', they called me at work and I suggested the usual, switch off and remove power socket for 5 - 10 mins and then reboot to reset the box. Unfortunately this didn't work as all it did was completely remove every programme listed in the Sky+ planner ( recorded ones not the epg ! ). On return from work I tried a 'planner rebuild' via the engineers menu and no joy, thought what the heck I will just wipe the hard drive by running the 'housekeeping' option, seem to work ok as it told me the housekeeping was being done, waited about 10 mins and then re-booted box. However on attempting to record anything now the machine just tells you to call the 087005 ...... number as recording is not available on this box Went back into the menus and noticed that I only have 1 input working, I thought AHA that's it the LNB is knacked, so I swapped the inputs round thinking this would at least show me that it was the lnb that was faulty, and guess what didn't make any difference input 2 was still showing no signal and 'not locked'. Therefore it must be the box?? Anyone able to offer advice on how to sort this, box is not warrantied as not bought from SKY, is it faulty or has the Power Cut just zapped my card and removed my SKY+ sub details if you know what I mean. Any help/info greatly appreciated as a bit wary of phoning SKY as being conned into paying for call out when its possibly a software problem ( see this month's What Satellite mag for the report on the SKY scam regarding call out fees to non SKY customers ) Apologies for the long winded post.
