    Sky box very slow.

    My Sky HD box seems to be getting slower and slower.

    If a power cycle it, seems better for a few days, but then begins to slow down. Sometimes it can take 10 seconds to either change channel or bring up a menu.

    Any ideas?

    Re: Sky box very slow.

    Whenever my box decides to go on a go slow I go into the installer menu (services, 0 0 1 select) and choose planner rebuild, this gets it going again

    Hope this helps
    Its not enough that I should succeed, others should fail.

    Does that wipe or clear any of the series links or recordings?

    no, its the skybox equivilent of defragging your pc's hdd.

    all it'll do is cancel anything currently recording as it also reboots the box!

    Re: Sky box very slow.

    planner rebuild as already mentioned, and maybe update software on box (power off box, hold BACK-UP button and keep pressed down, reapply power to box keeping BACK-UP pressed down and wait for all lights to appear on box) this will force latest software to be applied to box, takes approx 10-12 mins.

    the make of your box should be moulded into the top centre rear of the box, if it's THOMPSON phone SKY and get replacement.

    is your HDD almost full? this slows box down too.
