    Hey all,

    I've read about the "Vertical Banding" problems, however our problem seems slightly different...

    It seems to be more like "Horizontal Moving Banding" where horizontal lines move vertically - (like a rippling effect). Again darker backgrounds show it more (The Sky One maroon logo being a perfect example) and I have managed to get an engineer out on thursday, but is this a problem that could be fixed with a pace (assuming I can get hold of one)?

    It just seems slightly different to other problems.
    I've tried swapping scart cables (with a working cable being used for the DVD), and even tried svideo... not fixed the problem (terrestial is better quality!)

    As a side note: The picture in here (multiroom standard sky) seems to be fine (pace)

    Any ideas?

    Thanks all,
    Brett

    Hi

    I had exactly the same problem. Only way to fix it was to swap it for a PACE which luckily i was able to do.
