Bought a sky + box from here a few months ago and everything was working a ok recorded programs fine, then the past few weeks it has decided to play up and not record programs, in the planner they show up as recording failed however i dont know why.

i have gone into the installer menu and reset the listings and also restored the system and neither of those did the trick to get it back onto recording.

anyone else have any ideas before we ring sky?

It happen to me the other day with Sky, I press Select and 0041 and reset the listings. It helped !

Check your cable maybe ?

no, but we never have had either, we just left sky on the channel the program was on that we wanted to record and it used to work flawlessly.

have they changed it now and you need 2 cables running no matter what you want to record?

did the listing reset to no avail :( will check the cable is all ok going into the sky dish, weather might have loosened it maybe.
as for recording though, it will record fine if you press the record button on the program you are watching just not record a program you put on to auto record at a later date.

Yes You would need 2 cable plugin to be able to record or use the Planner thing properly. One cable only support recording the channel you are watching.

This might help

Are recordings also being marked as cancelled before they have happened? This happened with my sky+ box, turned out to be the power supply which was easily replaced. You can google the supplier, sat cure or something like that.
