This message has just started appearing on some of my recordings (Sky Plus). It appears in a wide red banner across the screen. Anyone any ideas what this is and should I be concerned?

The whole message reads:

Video Alarm Detected
Service 1d 3801
(011224)

What channel(s)?
What programmes?
What make and model of Sky+ box?
How long is it on the recording?
Is it exactly the same message on each recording?
More details please.

I could be wrong but I believe this comes from the network rather than the box itself. It happens when the network is having technical difficulties and actually broadcasts that message to your box? I hope someone will correct me if I'm wrong but I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Yes usually BUT the OP said recordings and that type of fault does not stay around for long on most major channels.

Perhaps it is recordings all from the same channel which has experienced technical difficulties over a length of time. It comes from the network side so there's little anyone but them can do about it. I guess we could contact the channel in question to notify them however I'm sure they already know?

Programmes - latest was a prog on Style Channel but is has occurred on an episode of Midsomer Murders (ITV)
Make and Model - Amstrad, A2PO802
How long on recording - just seconds and the recording does continue.
Exactly same message has appeared each time.

Thanks.
