      HD Box Is Not Overriding Current Channel

      Sky+ HD box died at the weekend and had a replacement put in yesterday.

      When I turn the box on the picture no longer comes up, I have to manually change to channel HDMI1 - anyone know what setting I need to change on the box? I've had a look and cannot find anything!

      All the same cables are being used as with the old box and are properly connected.

      edit: Television is a Panasonic Viera if that is needed

      There is nothing to change on the box. Your Viera should autoswitch when the HDMI 1 goes active. Reboot the box at the mains.

      If the TV is also connected via SCART, you may need to change the SCART settings on the Sky box (or disconnect the SCART).
