    Hi all,

    Had problems with Sky+ in past couple of weeks:
    - horizontal flickering on screen
    - picture 'juddering'
    - on playback of recordings / after pausing, voice - picture out of sync, picture 'juddering

    I forced a software update which has made no difference, no changes to the system, connections are all OK.

    The box is an Amstrad - I've read some threads linking these problems to Amstrad boxes, can someone confirm this is likely so I can approach Sky please?

    Oh, and of course Im jsut about to leave warranty on it - very suspicious that the problems have only just started ! :(

    Cheers

    Stu

    These are known problems on Amstrad boxes. If the warranty is almost out, get a call in to Sky now !

    Threaten to cancel if they won't agree to a free fix.
