you rent the decoder from sky so therefore if it "breaks" like in this case it would be "replaced" free

You only pay for the call-out if the fault is not with their equipment. Even if you pay $600 for MySky you still do not own it and they will repair any fault with their equipment.

You can never have enough Volvos!

Pull the power cord out then plug it back in. That worked for me on the two occasions my ski box wouldn't turn on.
