    Hi All,
    Recently returned from Paris for a few days to find my plasma blue screened and frozen. Went through the normal reset procedure which cured the freeze but the entire contents of my Sky+ Planner were gone. Sky said it was a power cut (Wasn't) and I couldn't do anything about it. How could my entire HDD be wiped clean..?
    I have also had to reset the box 6 times last night as everytime I went into the planner to record or delete programmes it froze again. I went throughthe houskeping scenario and even a back up and reset but it's still not right. Conveniently my warranty expired at the end of November.
    Any others experienced this and if so any advice..?

    Cheers

    Is this a standard Sky+ box, or one that has had a bigger hard drive fitted ?

    I read in another forum that if you have extended the HD size beyond 80Gb, then you can only do one hard reset. If you do another, you have to remove the HDD and format it in a PC. I've not had the need to try this myself.
