I would give Sky and ring and tell them that as you have had a lot of trouble with the sky box and you can no longer use it you will be canceling you subscription with sky. There are other companies offering similar services and I am sure sky will not want to loose a customer

Dont know of any fix,a new box would be cheaper than getting it repaired all the time i suppose,maybe if you did a search you would find a cheaper box?

thank you all, but seems like it it is back to the drawing board,, yama

If your box is a Sky+ (+ as in plus)I have found ours to be a lot more temprimental than the old standerd Sky box we used to have. I have had to do a reboot and cable check on ours but it is not as easy as it used to be on the previous box.
