    I'm wondering if anyone else has this issue or can think of anything that might be up. Every so often, it can happen 2-3 times in an hour I get a completely blue screen for about a second and then the picture comes back fine. I have the sound through my amp and the sound doesn't miss a beat via optical or via a Blu-Ray but i watched an hour of a blu the other night and didn't notice it but sometimes I can watch it for an hour or two and not see it at all. This is via my Sky+HD box. I've double checked all the connections and they're fine and i don't get the on screen display in the top left when it tells you what sort of signal it's getting either so would I be right in suspecting my HD box or does anyone have any other insight?

    are you running windows 95 on it?
    that gave blue screens ;-)
    it sounds as it may be your skybox.
    maybe it kind of looses the signal, and have to set up the signal again.
    i have a dreambox 800hd, and when i change from a 1080i channel, to a 720p channel, it have a little "blip" where it goes blue for 1/4 of a second.
    maybe it is something like that?
    that it looses the resolution kind of.
    i dont know the skyboxes, we dont have that here in norway, but it may be solved with a change in the outputsettings in the box?
    good luck and hope i could be of help :)

    And yet I just watched the last half of the superbowl and it didn't happen at all. Go figure.

    We've got a new one of these and seen nothing like this. We've connected Sky+ and a blu-ray player. It must be either your set-up or a faulty model I'm afraid.
