      Colour flickering

      Firstly I apologise if this question has been answered before.

      While watching a recorded programme, or one on delay etc. my screen is flickering black and white. As soon as I press back up to the menus, it goes fine back to blue.

      I doubt it can be a cabling problem as it only happens with recorded problems, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Please post the make and model number of your Sky box. Please also detail how your sky box is connected to your TV and whether you see the same effect if connected via Scart and RF.

      Thanks for replying.

      It's a standard Thomson 80Gb. The one Sky were giving away 18 months - 2 years ago.

      I currently connect via scart leads, but the problem doesn't happen when watching a normal programme, just recorded ones.

      Mystery solved. I unplugged the PS3 on AV1, plugged the Sky into AV1 then it was fine.

      Thanks for your help.
