    Dear all

    For the last 3 nights I've switched the TV on, and I've been confronted with the Sky+ box searching for channels. It just seems to hang there for ever, so have to power cycle it and then it's ok Anyone else having similar trouble?

    I've had it for about 18 months so it's out of warrantly will Sky still support it - I guess they will as long as it's a software and not a hardware issue? Also might it have anything to do with the fact I don't have a phone line connected to it at the moment?

    Cheers

    Well got in tonight and all seems to be ok, no channel searching dialog, guess must have just been a glitch?

    As for the signal strength I've got about 65% on both channels with quality of around 75%. Is that sort of normal?

    Been stormy for the last few nights. Possibly the cause.
