    Phoned sky, engineer book for Friday 26/02/10...so to be sure I am not fobbed off with any sky engineer jargon....has anyone else experienced these is issues.

    in before they say faulty HMDI socket on the TV, what TV is it? you got a blu ray player or HDMI games console to plug in and see if it's the TV?

    wouldnt be an amstrad hd box would it, seems to be alot of issues with picture quality if it is that box,
