Hahahahah that's pretty much what they do KD! Twiddle some knobs and flick a switch and get you to sign a form that you shove in the cupboard under the boiler..... Rolling Eyes

No show here either....I have just been on the phone to them for 3/4 of an hour. First was told no arrangements has been made for an engineer to call... on further investigations arrangements had been made but for some reason someone had then cancelled them.

Threaten to charge them for your time and to deduct from your monthly payment every hour you can't get reception.  Worked for me when we had Sky.

I am waiting for a phone call back Sassy.
So far I am getting a new sky box, free p&p...they origionally said the p&p would be £30...... £20 off this months rental charge and a reduced package price for the next 12 months.

I am still bloody fuming though.

Well that's something.  When they were the main cable people they thought they could get away with anything!

So, get a big screen monitor. It's just the feed is different.

I have almost lost the will to live.
An engineer is now coming out on Friday to set up a new hd box.
I had to pay £60 by cc in order for her to book the visit....which she promptly reimbursed me.
Is this progress??

Press "Services" on the Sky handset followed by buttons 4 6 in quick succession this should bring up the Signal Test Menu
signal quality should be at least 50%

No I don't know anything ....that's why the engineer is coming to sort it all out.
Normally they send the box through the post and you sort it out yourself.

I am so out of date I even have the old Sky box (which I love) I don't even want the new all singing all dancing new one....but I have no choice. Mad

It is...and an experience sometimes to post with people who could never be called either. Razz

I feel drained, unproductive days like this are very tiring.
