I had problems with my first box, where it would just freeze and I would need to reset/reboot.
Got a replacement, all has been working well for a week and a half.
Last night, I was recording two channels, watching the other which I stuck on live pause while I went and got a drink before the show started. Came back and the reminder for my show was on the screen, I pressed select and the whole screen froze.
Only way to get the system back was doing system reset/reboot. I lost my previous hour recording and as soon as I got back in it started to record my next lot.
It is getting to the point I am too scared to press any buttons on the machine. The last machine used to freeze when I changed channels.
One sky tech weeks ago said I am asking the box to do too much. I am only doing what the box says it is supposed to do.
I beleive this could come under false advertising/misleading information.
The box is able to record two shows while watching another show live, yet it freezes when you ask it to do too much.
What is going on?
If it is a matter of the unit been overheated, why do they not make the box with a better fan to cool it down. I don't put the wrong equipment in my PC builds. If it is software, why can't they fix it and add more logic operators. For example. I was on the channel already that I had a reminder set for, surely if it knew it was too much for it to handle, by sending a reminder while I had that channel on live pause, it could detect that, and not send the reminder out - as doing so, gives it too much to do resulting in a freeze.
I'm just really frustrated and annoyed as the box is not living up to what it says it can do. I think I am going to put some money aside now and build my own PVR.
