    Anybody else suffer from this?

    When I step through Shopping Channels (when I very bored!!) the picture goes Black and White on certain channels. If I move quickly over them the subsequent channels flick it back to colour. Sometimes if I stay on one ofthese channels for a moment or two I need to turn of SKY+ and turn back on to a normal channel to get the colour signal back.

    I'm assuming these Shopping channels use low transmission signals (to save money) and the signal becomes to weak to sustain colour. Am I right?

    thanks

    Channel 662 has had that sort of problem for quite a while, do a search you'll find it discussed at length although no real conclusion as to why :)
