Sky + patterned display

Hi All, Has anyone seen this before. Especially when watching low contrast scenes there is light/dark/light/dark (etc) vertical banding across the picture. It is static, not moving with the images. I've had Sky + about a year now & this is beginning to burn into my Plasma. Repeated contact to Sky has been ignored. Comments would be much appreciated, thanks.

OOOO Errr, yes Nick it is one of Mr. Sugar's products, would this be significant perhaps?

Vertical banding is a known problem with Amstrad boxes, caused by memory timing errors. If it's out of warranty, you might get somewhere if you threaten cancellation, otherwise it's a £65 call out.

Thank you Nick. I am going to threaten cancellation etc. It does seem to be policy these days for companies (not only Sky) to ignore known problems until the consumer shouts loudly.

Thanks again.
