      BBC Channels - colour flicker

      Hi,

      Just wondered if anyone has seen this ...

      When watching SKY+ on second TV ( via rf ) of late - any BBC channels ( BBC1 , 2, 3 , 4 and news ) the signal loses colour and flickers between colour and b&w.

      Very odd and only happens to the channels above. Started about a week ago.

      Main telly doesn't show this behaviour *confused*

      Martin.

      Try another ( lower? ) RF channel.
      Panasonic TX-P50G10B, Onkyo HTS 3305, Sky+HD Thomson 4E3007 (with upgraded PSU & WD5000AVDS HDD),

      Gave the lower rf channel a go - no luck.

      Really odd though that the only satellite channels to be affected mainly are:
      BBC1 and BBC Three and BBC News 24

      If I record or live pause etc then play back its fine. Also tried both RF out sockets

      If anyone every has this - after changing sky+ to a sky+HD box - it still did it ( any excuse to upgrade I say !!! ).

      So upon changing the telly - it's now gone !
