Hi - have just subscribed to HD. The Thomson box that was installed last week sounds like a bee hive and makes clicking noises (I know I can turn the 'rewind' function off to stop this, but why should I?). I've had failed recordings, using pause made the box freeze several times and the fast forward is so erratic that it's all but useless. I've had to do a complete reboot twice just to get things working again. I've read several posts that getting a 'good' box is a bit hit and miss. I wonder what % of boxes that are delivered are actually good ones - ie is it worth me hassling the engineer to bring half a dozen boxes with him to try out - or will most of them be rubbish? It's the noise of the fans that bugs me most. I'm impressed with the HD - but the quality of the box seems apalling.
