Sky HD box - And ideas re: HDMI port failure?


Standard Member
Morning all,

have had Sky HD with a Panny 37PX70 and have been blown away by the quality (particularly on live cricket).

However, yesterday the box went doubly mad. Firstly, the HDMI output stopped working (and I have checked everything that you might expect, cabling, swapping ports in the TV etc). I tried a reboot, power off for 10 mins, planner rebuild etc and the problem remains.

It does however output via SCART and the optical. It has also now starting doing something else very strange. When changing channels, instead of the channel changing instantly and the search and scan banner notifying of the new channel, the screen goes blue for about 2 secs and the new channel appears without the search and scan banner.

Does anyone have any brilliant ideas? Or should i resign myself to having the box swapped out and spend the weekend saving my entire hard disk to DVD?

Cheers, Chris
