    I use my SKY remote to change aspect ration on my tv and to change the inputs, but after about 2 months it started blanking out the picture (goes black) when I press 'tv' button. When I press SKY again it works fine.

    Does anyone know how to get it back to normal?

    When you press TV, the video output stops, and your TV may automatically switch to input from its internal tuner or some other input with a video signal. If not, then the screen will go black when you press TV. Can't imagine why yours was ever different. What it does now is what is supposed to happen.

    my screen is a pwd6 plasma, which has no tuner.

    I thought it switched the inputs but this is not the case. Could it be something to do with scart control in SKY box?

    In 99% of cases reported to Sky where something "worked before, but doesn't work now" it's a loose Scart plug (or similar cause).

    TVman, thanks for your advice but my scart is QED and it needs a bulldozer to pull it out when I need to. There is more chance of SKY scart socket coming loose.

    switched off scart control in picutre settings and the problem has cleared.

    While I was looking for a solution I found a way to control my amp with SKY+ remote as well. Now I use it to do the following:
    - all sky+ functions
    - TV on/off, ascpect ratio, source select
    - amp on/off, volume up/down, mute, select source.
    This is pretty much all functions I use for my normal viewing. Still have to use the DVD remote, but that's only 5% of my viewing time.
