We have a pre-HD MySky decoder (silver box). Sometimes it refuses to respond to pause/rewind commands from the remote, and some few seconds after the attempt the audio emits a loud click similar to the noise it makes when you cycle the power. Just lately it has taken to doing a full power-on restart when this occurs, and throwing away recordings in progress.

The weather has been quite warm, so it could be a thermal fault, but I was wondering if anyone had some anecdotal evidence of this behaviour before I confront the Sky phone wall.

Prepare for its imminent death, phone Sky, and they'll install a nice Kaon box.

Spyware:

If it's not dead soon it will be. Call sky and they will replace it. Video what happens so the tech can see incase it is not doing it on that day.

@spyware, a plus 1 to you.

They will replace it anyway, as it will be scheduled to be replaced. Call Sky and get it replaced before it dies completely.
