    As a long term digibox user (yes, like an idiot I paid for it), I am very familiar with the half-second sound dropouts that affect it on a regular basis. (I understand that this is a common problem).

    Anyway, I'm thinking of upgrading to sky+ but I wondered if the problem affects this box too ?

    Sorry to say but what half second sound drop outs?

    I have SKY+ and a PACE 2200 and I've not seen or come to think of it heard that problem with the sound output.

    Some time ago I used to subscribe to a Sky digital news group, and there were regular threads about this problem. Lots of people suffered it and were always told by sky that it was probably dish alignment/faulty box etc. The general consensus was that it was Skys problem but they wouldn't admit to it.

    Judging by the lack of responses to this post it looks like it isn't a problem on Sky+ anyway.

    I get sound drop outs on Sky+ but only when it's on Dolby Digital output via my Tag AV32R. Every thing else on Sky+ via the Tag sounds fine.

    Anyone got any clue if it may be the Sky+ box?
