Question by Mr Pounder
Sky HD, not very old. Sometimes we just lose the satellite signal. Not always when it raining. Today is a clear day and it happened. Turn off at the plug, wait, turn back on and all is fine. All connections are okay. Is this a common problem or do I need to contact Sky?

Earthquakes & Snow by Turk182

Re HD BOX Problem by Deebrief
Have other uses experienced over the last 4 weeks a sudden loss of picture, going all green then returning in about 10 secs. This happens once a night at a different time. Is the box playing up, if so as it is less than a year old I hope Sky will replace it ??? Cheers

Burnt Viewing Card by Craig Coope

Sky HD scart/HDMi switching by Ed[_8_]
Bloke just installed, or rather, plugged in, my shiny new HD box. However, the 'Sky' button doesn't switch the TV to the HDMI connection as the old Sky+ box used to switch to the scart connection when you pressed it. Is this normal, or is there a setting that needs changing? It's very frustrating!
