    Sky box problems when using BBC Text or Sky Text

    There have been some reports, which can be confirmed by some calls I have been getting, that some Sky boxes, and Sky+ boxes have been crashing or powering down when ever you try to use the text service on Sky or BBC.

    I must admit I have not had this happen on any of the boxes I have tested this on, but given the number of calls I have had, and the reports from other people around Europe on various expat forums, this issue is affecting a number of boxes.

    I have no idea what the problem is, or if this is caused by new software been deployed to the sky boxes.

    But this is just to make Sky box users aware that, if you are having problems with Sky text or BBC text, that you are not alone.

    Sky are aware that there is an issue where Sky boxes, of various makes and models, are crashing or require rebooting due to a failure when access some teletext services like Sky text or BBC text.
