    The paste that was on there was, surprisingly, in really good condition and a pretty much ideal amount, so we left it alone. Guess I just got lucky in that regard.

    I got that PS4 Pro in February 2017, and it's been used pretty much every day. Quite often fall asleep watching Netflix on it (it's set to turn itself off eventually), so it's had a lot of time to suck up dust and dirt (Edit: I mean cat hair. Ahem).

    It's out of warranty anyway, and I have no intention of trading it in (though I live in the Czech Republic, I could definitely find somewhere that'd take it regardless). I was gonna play it til it conked out, then buy a replacement.

    It was in pretty dire straits: it actually insta-shut-down due to overheating on the God of War title screen at the weekend. So, I was resigned to the fact that it was on its way out, this was just a "might as well try that before I spend money on a replacement" thing.

    Anyone else getting “cannot connect to server to verify the licence” and a message telling you to set it as your primary console?

    My younger brothers PS4 is set as my primary console so he can play the games I buy via his account in his console, while I can play them on my account on my console.

    I’ve had it set up this way for ages and never been a problem until tonight where I can’t run any games.

    My ps4 somehow affects our HD recorder- if I'm gaming and my wife records something at the same time the recording often gets screwed up (bad news and rows if she sets the timer and I don't notice). If the ps4 is on standby/pause we lose a bunch of freeview channels too, which come back as soon as the ps4 is off. I'm not clever enough to work out why- any suggestions?
    Did you ever get to the bottom of this? I realized recently I have exactly the same problem: when I shut the PS4 off and switch to Freeview, channels come up as 'No signal' until the PS4 fully powers off. It's very weird.
