    I purchased a new Sky+160 about 3 weeks ago. I am having sound problems.

    I experience sound drop-outs and sound break-ups. However, I have another unusual sound problem.

    When watching a recorded item, I fast forward at x30 to bypass the adverts, the programme resumes with the soundtrack from the adverts playing over the programme instead of the expected soundtrack.

    This problem is not exclusive to the adverts section, it can be occur anywhere on the recording where fast forward is used.

    Any ideas as to the cause?

    The Thomson 160 is known to suffer several bugs regarding audio (DD drop out is the main one) and Sky have been aware of them since last October. The out of sync sound seems to be a new one and could be related to a purported OS upgrade for the Sky+ 160 that some users have said they recieved and then started getting out of Sync sound.

    Personally, considering the premium price of the Thomson unit, I think it's pretty outrageous that it suffers so many problems (by the way how noisy is the fan / HD as many owners reckon it's a lot louder than the Pace units.).

    Regards

    The fan/HD is slightly noisy, where the Pace box I had previously was silent
