About this deal

When a connection has been successfully made the wireless LED light on the front of the box while go from flashing amber to solid amber. Features You'll be able to stream recordings from your hard disc, and control the Sky Guide Planner. For now, it's a satisfyingly high-performance HD satellite receiver, at least on a par with Sky's top-of-the-line 1TB PVR when it comes to channel changes and browsing the Sky Guide, if not faster.

Note: These codes may now be out-of-date due to recent software updates. You could try the Sky on-screen error message lookup tool.

No need for an engineer call out either. It's important to note that you need the type of Sky Protect that corresponds with your Sky box, so if you're a Sky Q customer then you would need Sky Q Protect, not Sky+ HD Protect. This is the only insurance endorsed by Sky, and it covers accidental damage as well as breakdowns.

I think, with a lot of things like this, the overal impression of the box or kit in question is going to be down to a lot of things including first impressions (mine was very poor), the quality of your signal and the broadcast (?), the display and seating distances? I am still convinced that some displays are going to struggle with SD because they are designed with HD in mind and the resolutions don't match up well. My Sharp only just manages 1080i, but was designed with SD in mind so the majority of SD pictures are crystal clear at my current settings and seating distances. The Sky+HD box has firmware that boots the box and loads the operating system. The EPG, planner and recordings are stored on the hard drive. When the hard drive contains corrupted data the Sky box has no built-in recovery software to resolve the corruption like Microsoft Windows or Linux does so it just says that the box is in "diskless mode". The "corruption" that made your box enter diskless mode is not necessarily a hardware corruption but could be a software corruption that occurred during the automated system software update. Some of us have figured out that forcing a software update can sometimes resolve the corruption but in most cases it requires a system reset. A system reset completely wipes your hard drive and reinstalls the system software and allows the hard drive itself to mark any areas as bad. Of course you lose your planner and recordings in the process. You could take resolution a step further by removing your hard drive from the Sky box, inserting it into a caddy and connecting it to a computer running hard drive diagnostics and repair software. Or, you could extend your box's life by inserting a new hard drive and performing a system reset to format it and use it as your new storage device. The Sky software supports up to 2TB hard drives.The same year, Amstrad supplied set top boxes to Australian broadcaster Foxtel, and in 2004 to Italian broadcaster Sky Italia.
