    Hi guys,
    got the £49 sky+ offer,
    Had a few issues with the engineers on installation (me Sony amp is now displaying the message "protect" and I have no sound!) culminating in the original pace V1 box being swopped out with a brand new Amstrad box..........trouble is I notice the banding mentioned on previous posts.........
    Whas the best programmes/scenes to show the engineer.....also anyone have a whining noise from what sounds like the fan when u change channels?
    Anyone? :lease:

    Anyone recommend screenshots or scenes/programmes to view when the engineer arrives?
    I have recorded an episode of 24, but this is only one that I have.........he may say "that is how it was recorded" or something along those lines...........is there anything else that shows this clearly for daytime viewing?

    The engineers are normally aware of this, or get them to speak to tech support in the office. The engineer turned up, called the office, the office asked "amstrad?", engineer says "yes", office says "swap it for a pace". Job done. Actually I had to accept two amstrad boxes previously and then report the fault 3 times basically.

    Ok engineer came on Saturday, two guys from Sky.
    Excellent blokes, no problems replaced the Amstrad no questions with the Pace V2 and also swopped me old dish and lnb for a new one! :smashin:
    Cracking picture on the Pace V2, top stuff.........signal strength and quality have shot right up now (75-90%), bloke was surprised I wasn't getting a "no satellite signal received" error messages all the time (about 30-50% on both).
    Well chuffed now, thanks to you guys on this forum yet again. : :clap:
