    Hi All

    I have a problem with sky+ and panasonic TH-37PX80.

    The Skybox keeps freezing not allowing you to change channel. The only solution is to disconnect the skybox from the mains and wait for a total reboot.

    If you push the power button on the sky remote it turns the TV off.

    Any Ideas


    Cheers

    Dave

    Let me ask the most daft question ever...

    If you press the power button and the TV turns off. Then have you pressed the "Sky" button and then Channel up / Channel down etc. to control Sky?

    I'm sorry to ask this, but you don't explicitly say that you don't.

    When you say the Sky box is freezing and not allowing you to change channel, do you mean the picture is freezing or is the channel you are watching fine?

    If you are pressing Power and the TV is turning off it sounds like you are controlling your TV, not Sky.

    OK I shall try again. :oops:

    Ok the Sky+ box keeps freezing. By that I mean you are watching a programe and want to change channel and none of the buttons on the remote do anything . The red remote light on the sky plus box dose not illuminate as normal.
    The only fix I can do is unplug the box and wait 3-5 mins for a total reboot of the box.


    Any Ideas

    Cheers

    Dave

    Have you replaced the batteries in the remote?
    Does the channel change using the buttons on the box?

    I have tried 3 different sets of new AA's in the remote and the buttons on the sky+ box do nothing when it freezes.

    A new symptom which has manifested is after some time of being stuck on one channel the box appears to catch up with repeated pressing of the change channel button and starts to cycle through all the channels by it's self.

    Cheers

    Dave

    Simple, you have a faulty Sky+ box. You need to have it replaced.

    I have a 42" version of your Panasonic TV and have found the following when using the SKY remote control and watching a program (don 't think your box is broken):-

    press TV
    press SELECT
    Result - TV Screen freezes, but sound is OK, other SKY buttons don't work.

    press SELECT again
    Result - TV Screen unfreezes, buttons work as usual.

    press TV
    press SELECT
    Result - TV Screen freezes, but sound is OK
    Press SKY
    Result - no apparent change

    Press TV
    Press TV Guide
    Result - Screen still frozen , now sound is lost
    press TV
    press SELECT
    Result - SKY Guide displayed, screen frozen
    press SKY
    Result - SCreen unfreezes and last channel viewed is activated
