      Unhappy picture fault in recordings

      Hi everybody im new here,pretty experienced technical knowledge,etc,4 yrs sky experience,can install foreign stuff,technomate dreambox blah blah.i have attended a service call twice with a picture fault,on arriving customer informs me 3rd visit for same fault,box replaced twice both pvr 3 plus boxes,not sure manufacturer,but one was an amstrad.i replaced box with a pace.the fault was this.when customer played back some of his recordings,not all,the picture/screen would go black,then fuzzy (as if no rf (remember poltegeist carol anne!!).then would pulsate/flash in and out back to picture.did this and recording would be unwatchable.strange because of the programmes he recorded the first ten mins or so would be watchable,then it would happen.i also disconnected his vcr from the scart connection on sky box,so only connected by a scart lead (also rfed the plus box to check if rgb fault but still did the same thing.The screen the customer had was a 40 inch panasonic,didnt play up with his video or dvd,they worked fine.please help any ideas would be great.

      Sounds like same fault - http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/sky/1...g-picture.html

      Sounds like the sync is going.
      I wonder what would happen if you passed the STB scart into a VCR and then the second VCR scart on to the TV.
      There is no p in Thomson.
