I've got a Sky+ box that has had an unfortunate incident with some lighting this afternoon. It appears to have damaged tuner input 1 (the main tuner) but tuner 2 is working fine and picks up a signal whereas tuner 1 doesn't.

It's an Amstrad box and the tuners appear to be inside two small metal covers under the fan.


I would take it apart myself and swap the tuners over but I don't particularly want to in case I statically damage it not having any anti static protection and I'm not 100% certain it is that because I don't have an oscilloscope so does anyone know of anywhere or anyone that can do it cheap? Anywhere in between Mid Wales and Bristol would be superb.


Thanks

Argh bugger. I know its about £20 for the tuner. I'd do it myself but the only safe facility I have to do it is at work but I'm kind of working :p

Is it possible to move the hard drive to another box or is it digitally locked to that particular box?
