    Really doing my head in, taped a whole peep show series but as it starts recording earlier and finishes later so you get the whole show, mines been cutting bits off the end/start and also if i tape something through the night and leave the box on, i go to watch it and its failed or part recorded! Grrrrrrrrrr whats going on

    There have been a huge amount of issues with Sky+, I know some months back they upgrade the firmware of the boxes which caused some peoples boxes to freeze up, the problem appeared to be when the box would go into standby it would not only cause issues with the recordings but you also could not use the planner without pulling the power and resetting.

    Not sure if they have resolved this yet but I got around it by changing the setting so the box does not go into standby.

    try doing a total shut down and reset of the box - removing the card etc. That might help.

    Otherwise you could stop the auto stand-by as mentioned above or go into your settings and change the number of minutes before and after that the Sky+ starts recording a program.

    They do seem quite iffy at times. A full power off should work :-D

    SKY + boxes are terrible Mine was installed and within 3 minutes of engineer leaving it had broke got replacement and it lasted about 7x longer at around 21 minutes LOL.

    3rd box is playing up crashing , no power on and red power light flickering rapidly on/off and TV switch over av connection every 30 secs for a split second b4 going back to previous rgb signal switch over and failed recordings . part rec, recordings with 1% instead of 2 and no playback. It is out of warranty now.

    I know about this kinda of stuff though so can fix mine so that is not an issue it is the fact that sky once again have managed to negotiate with 3 companies to manufacture something that even counterfeited would be better quality

    no...
