    Hi Guys, I'm having my + box replaced by Sky I currently have the Pace PVR3 and was told the replaced box will either be a Pace, Panasonic or a Thompson I was wondering which of these are recommended by you guys.

    I know most go for the Pace but I thought I'd double check.

    Thanks, Chris.

    Faults with my box: keeps freezing on playback, box turns off at random and resets back to sky information channel, keep getting loss of signal during recordings although signal strength is good.

    panasonic dont do a sky+ box its pace,thomson and amstrad and if they are replacing it it will be with a refurb of whatever he's got on the van.

    every make has their faults but pace is generally considered the best

    As you have already discovered Pace as well as all the other manufacturers have bad boxes. There is little to chose between them nowadays (even Pace boxes are made in the Far East now and quality has dropped substantially since they stopped making them in the UK), just hope you get a good box whatever the make and do not accept a noisy box.

    Installer friends of mine tell me they are replacing more Thomson and Pace boxes less than 3 months old than they are Amstrad boxes although they fit far more Amstrads.
