My Sky+ freezes, without fail, on 51 minutes of every playback. It will freeze for about 5 seconds and then come back on...however, during that 5 seconds, it's jumped forward some 30 seconds in the programme. You can rewind that 30 seconds and play the skipped section fine after it's frozen the first time... I have tried it to see what it's like in fast forward mode ie. start fast forward at 50 minutes until 52 minutes...and the picture does freeze at 51 minutes in fast forward mode as well... Now, here's the reason why I think it's a software bug. It's done it on 2 different boxes and 3 different hard drives!! Noticed it happening about 2 weeks ago. Phoned Sky, came out, replaced box last Wednesday. Still did it. Had changed on upping the HD drive for a while so brought a 160Gb Maxtor that same day, replaced it, formatted it and it still does it!! When I rang Sky technical, they didn't say anything about a software bug, but then they wouldn't, would they...? The box is an Anstrad hooked up to a Panasonic PWD6 plasma via upconverted S video through an Onkyo amp... Anybody help or have similar problems?
