      Sky+ HD & Sony KDL40V4000

      I have trawled through this site and am about to pull my last remaining hair out, nobody seems to have "exactly" the problem I have, so please bare with me if in fact it is old ground. Thanx!

      The problem:

      On certain HD channels (mainly SkyPremiereHD, BBCHD and intermittantly on both Sky Sports HD channels) I am experiencing an issue Sky seem unable to resolve, it basically goes like this.

      I am watching a movie on Sky Premiere, screen goes blank (black). At top of screen i get the Sony display for the external input I am currently using, I have named this Sky of course. My Sky HD box is frozen, ie I cant jump up or down channels (I will explain how I know this below).

      Now the only way I seem to be able to fix the issue is to press the External Inputs button on my Sony remote, switch to another External Input (eg PS3) then press External Inputs again and jump back to my Sky one.

      And voalla all is back to normal (if temporaraly), as I said above I know the Sky box has been frozen when this happens as the same channel will still be on when I complete this process.

      I've had an engineer out today, he basically reset the box and reinserted/downloaded new software, but the problem has persisted this evening. Its baffling as the Sky box seems to only respond when I have done something to my TV, is this a HDMI phenomenon?

      Any advice would be heed and welcome.

      Thanx in advance.

      Have you tried plugging your HDMI cable into a different socket on your TV?

      I have a Sony 32U3000 (I think) and my Sky+HD works fine.

      Yeah did that and changed cable's also, PS3 and my Laptop both work fine in all HDMI ports. Its confusing the hell outa me, especially as it only happens on certain channels and not all the time.
