      Sky+ going black and white

      As subject really. Had Sky+ put in last Friday and every now and again, and only for a second, the picture goes black and white.

      This happens on recorded and live programs.

      The box is an Amstrad (one of the newish 160GB models)

      Does anyone else get this?

      Cool, I hope that's all it is! Well I'm now going to be binning my old video recorder and that's using a decent scart lead so I'll use that one on Sky+ and see if it eradicates the problem.

      Might not even be faulty - might just not be pushed fully in.

      EDIT: If not that read this:

      I've swapped the scart lead now, and all seems well thanks

      Although, Superstorm from Sunday night kept going black and white, but I think they were flashbacks and therefore supposed to! Can anyone else confirm this?

      I've just watched two hours of Brainiac as well, without any black and white bits
