      A bit of know how please.

      I reckon I am switching Sky + box on properly.

      Switch on TV with it's own remote

      Hit the SKY button and lo and behold. I make sure TV Button is toggled correctly I think!!

      But there are times when a very slightly different resolution pic happens. I then hit the SKY button again and perhaps it is OK.

      NOT ALWAYS! It can take several attempts until you cannot remember what the blazes you did and you get it back.

      I guess I am doing something wrong.

      Any suggestions please.

      Turn your TV on, then press the TV button on the sky RCU, then hit the sky button. This will ensure that the sky box is sending the 5v pin 8 comand to the TV.
