In April my Samsung V+ box failed - wouldnt record properley. Techie replaced with a refurbed unit. Three days later that failed. Swapped it out again.
At the weekend - that failed - wouldnt record got stuck on the delay live tv. Hard drive goosed i'd guess. Techie came out today and swapped it out. The unit worked fine - for 6 hours. Now its suffering from stuttering recordings, failed recordings, recovered content everywhere. Night mare.
Assuming that there is no underlying issue with my service that is causing V+ boxes to fail.
How exactly do VM refurb these boxes - open them up, blow out the dust, reformat the HD, close it up and pass it on to the next customer ? Are they tested under working conditions ? I would expect better length of service from any refurbished electrical product from any reputable company.
Does the hard drive get changed ? Surely it must after several years of continual spinning it's lifetime is limited. Other electronic components replaced ?
Oh well will just call in the morning and roll the dice again.
