obviously some sorta fault, the link suggests a possible resolve...

the link is not dealing with my problem, it relates to recording and pausing issues
my box records and pauses normally just the lights ALWAYS spinning both directions

you still might need to reset reset the system...

only thing you have to loose is any prerecorded progs, in which case watch em first, try reset

Unplug box from the mains. Press and hold the two buttons either side of the select button, then plug back in while
holding the two buttons in, wait until the lights on the front of the box begin to spin backwards, then press the select button on the box, the record light will come on. The box will then perform the reset, and will go back into standby when finished. This procedure will wipe off all your recordings, but may just help to get your box working again

Can't remember where but I seem to recall the spinning light function can be switched off in one of the set up menus or set to a steady light.

Check your manual if you can't find it post again and I'll look further
