      SKY HD Box problem

      This is quite weird, when I switch my tv off (either on standby or by the main switch) with the skyHD box still on and then switch the tv back on I see nothing on the sky channel except a purple (or pink) screen (I am looking at the HDMI channel on the TV). I have to reboot the sky box to view it again. I have changed the HDMI cable to see if that is the problem but this did not help. Also I have tried a second sky hd box and do not have the problem with it.

      The box is a new box, replacing my old one, and I have just installed it.

      Any thoughts on how to fix?

      Does it work if you change inputs on the TV (go to freeview and then back to HDMI)?

      If I switch inputs and then go back to HDMI it does still work. It only stops showing on the HDMI imput when I switch the tv off and or put the tv on standby!
