Re: freezing etc

this i am not sure has been sorted. having lots of communication with a sky tech. going through and testing alot, we got to the stage of deleting all my recordings and resetting the hard disc. this looked as if it had sorted all the pixelation and mainly freezing problems. but for the last 2 days i have noticed a slight  freeze (maybe half a second)  3 or 4 times watching live tv (in the space of 5pm-11pm) with some sort of pixelation mixed in. this again on the main box. this i could not say has our chat had passed the 48hours it was open.
