    Have been away on holiday & returned to find my newly upgraded & (perfectly working) PACE V2 sky+ box had a problem.

    The power has been off,
    A couple of older recordings now show FAILED and 0%,
    One recording about 1 ½ hours showed 99% (but total only 60%)
    Nothing would record
    I tried housekeeping & lost everything (previously no loss)
    Tried to reset by unplugging but now the box will not switch on. (I can hear either hard drive or fan spinning then stopping, then starts again (about a 2 min. cycle.))

    it sounds like that you nice new box has died and gone into stuck in standby, all you can do is get sky to swap it for another one.

    I have now got it working again.
    A software download didn't help,
    I then did a system reset (l & r buttons), it worked.
    Everything lost off the harddrive though.
