      I think penrhyn has asked the right question, I'd guess a CRT.
      There is no p in Thomson.

      Yes, is a CRT, had it for a while, but I never had the problem before yesterday,
      the TV also works fine with other items such as Nokia phone plugged into it, and other devises, but the sky box seem to have this issue, I would also like to say that the box has been setup with the TV for the past 5 months and was only taken down for cleaning and "rebuilt" the next day, same setup and all

      It sounds very much like a magnetic field is affecting the TV and causing the screen to distort.
      Do you have another screen to try just to prove its not the STB at fault.

      Thank you for your reply, As mentioned above, I tried using a different scart and a different TV, the problem is still there

      Was the different tv used in the same place? However does the picture bending only affect menus? If so then the OSD part of the STB may be goosed.

      The box never moved, and the different TV was about 1m away from the main one, and yes the problem only apply to the OSD

      Its a box problem. If its warranteed then call Sky, if not then its up to you whether you want to pay 65quid and get a replacement box or whether you can put up with it.
