    help,
    Just got sky (freesat) last week and was working fine. I was fiddling about with the remote and now all I can get is the menu system and tv listings. If I select a channel I only get the info panel at the bottom of the screen and no picture (dark blue background).
    I assume all the connections are good as I can see the menus etc.

    What should I press now to get a picture.

    This is pretty urgent as my wife just called me an idiot.

    Rebooting SKY hardware is always a good place to start, consider a digibox as a very basic computer with less then optimised code:)

    If this doesn't help then does the EPG(TV lisitngs) populate itself when you go a few days ahead and can you access the "i" data on a random number of programs.
    Also check in the Services/System Setup/Signal Test screen just to see if you actually have a lock on the satellite and are receiving a signal, the menu is generated by the digibox regardless of any signal being present.
