Faulty HDD Recorder

Adrian the technician arrived this afternoon in order to fit extra cabling from the satellite dish to my new Panasonic DVD HDD Recorder. The two cables were plugged in; the recorder turned on; the set-up process began... and the screen advised us that there was no satellite signal detected!

We tried again; and again; and reset everything. Then Adrian unplugged the cables and inserted each one into his £400 satellite meter: 100% signal.

The conclusion was that the brand new machine had either a faulty processor or tuner. I phoned up the retailer and they are going to replace it, though it has to be collected and they shan't remit a replacement till they receive the faulty one.

What a nuisance!
