      Flickering Picture in HD

      Hi,

      Just recently our SKY HD+ (Samsung R005.054.15.00P ver. 973007) picture judders when in HD.

      I've powered it on and off twice now, and it's fine for a few days, and always fine in SD.

      But when it's in HD, the picture judders, like a 35mm film judder, and it seems to miss alternate frames, so it is in effect like watching a 35mm film! Even when in the programme guide the mini picture is juddering in its frame, yet the main frame is clear and stable.

      The latest firmware for the Samsung is R005.054.17.00P, maybe you should try a forced update. To do this follow these instructions-

      1. Power off your Sky+ HD STB at the mains
      2. Press and hold the Backup button on the top of the box (NB: Not the remote control!)
      3. Power on the Sky+ HD STB at the mains, whilst continuing to hold the button
      4. Keep holding the button until the lights on the front of the Sky box start flashing.



      I think the older boxes benefit from a bit of regular maintenance, ever couple of weeks I do this-
      1. Empty the Deleted programs folder.
      2. Do a planner rebuild
      3. Put the box into Standby, then switch off the power completely.
      4. Wait for about 10 minutes and switch on again, leaving it for a few minutes before pressing the Sky button.
