    If this has been done to death I apologise but couldn't find anything on a search.

    While I was recording BBC1 earlier I hit the interactive button, obviously the Sky+ switches to the other tuner and the screen flickers a moment when this happens. When I hit the Sky button to exit the screen just went blue. The Search and Scan came up OK and when I changed channels the S&S changed but the screen stayed blue.

    I had to pull the plug to get it all back.

    After a little experimentation I found two things:

    1. Even while the screen was blue the programme was being recorded OK so it's not a signal issue.

    2. If I stayed on the BBC interactive menu (where you can still see the TV programme) the box switches back OK, it only crashes when I go to a full screen of interactive (News Multiscreen for example).

    Has anyone else come across this and is it a sign of worse things to come?
