Sky+ Box number 4

Filed under: Personal

Yep, the Thomson Sky+ box we had installed just last week failed.  I asked the installer if he had a Pace box on the van, but again, no he didn't.

This time, we have the ugliest of the Sky+ boxes, the Amstrad.

Fingers crossed that this one lasts longer than the normal week-long lifespan of a Thomson.

UPDATE:  Well, seems I spoke too soon, the Amstrad has now just given up the ghost.  It's making one heck of a racket and the screen keeps going black with a vertical green line across it.  It's lasted no more than 2 hours after installation.  Got to wait until Wednesday for our 5th Sky+ box to be installed now :(
