    Hi

    I have a Panasonic HD LCD TV and have just upgraded to Sky HD (Amstrad Box) connected via HDMI

    Sometime when I switch the box on it does not change to the HDMI channel, (the old sky+ work fine via the Scart)

    and last night I was watching a DVD, and I heard the Sky Hdd fire up, and it changed to the HDMI channel and I was left with a black screen, (The sky box was still on standby), also does this when a recording starts.

    I then had to manually change to TV back to the DVD AV2

    any advice


    Thanks

    you could try switching the HDMI inputs on the TV.

    Panasonics will detect a signal on HDMI 1 and automatically switch to it, but not HDMI 2 (unless the source supports HDMI CEC codes, which Sky HD does not)

    Though, I haven't heard of one switching to Sky just because it started recording before. Strange.
