Hi, all, numpty question from a newbie! I normally turn my Sky+ & Sky boxes off when not in use for prolonged periods, ie at night and while I'm at work. My reasoning is threefold: 1) saves money; 2) saves the planet; and 3) lessens the chances of a house fire due to electical fault. Am I doing more harm than good? Is it better to leave them in standby mode? I've been reading some of the threads about hard drive failure. My free space indicator is way (out box is only 10 months old) and it seems time for some housekeeping. Now I'm wondering if the daily power-up and power-down is contributing? Mind, the hard drive has been noisy from day one. Must ring Sky whilst still in warranty! TIA.
