If the sky box is not registered with your viewing card, it will not show. if you want to check that the monitor is working plug in a dvd to make sure its not the monitor that is at fault.

HDMI to DVI-D conversion problem. Not in compliance?

It souunds like te TV is having problems with the streaming data being applied Most plasmas with DVI connections were actually designed for PC type input signals  Unfortunately the TV's input may not be able to stand up to the stream of signal the DVD or cable box wants to display. You can try and lower the output of both devices to 720P Good luck to you

Problem is probably with your cable box as you have confirmed that the set is working by using the dvd player, that is unless you have a bad cable for the cable box.

Lg plasma mt 42pz10

I wish I had an answer for you but I'm in the same boat. I've got a 42pc5d and it's doing the same thing. I'll turn it on using either the remote or the power button on the unit itself. The LED will blink either two or three times, then shut itself off. I tried plugging the unit into a different outlet. I tried unhooking all inputs (PS3, DVD player, antenna, etc). The tv was still shutting itself off. I called tech support and the lady who answered asked me if there was a power button on the unit. Well, of course I understand LG has hundreds of models but I felt like I was dealing with someone who didn't care enough to even open the manual to see for herself. Anyway, after a "reset", the TV is now nothing more than a very expensive paperweight. To say I'm displeased is an understatement.

there are 2 types of flicker, one is the lamps that drive the display and the second is the sync signal of the video.
I assume the video sync is the flicker you see,
I would try connecting a different way to make sure it is not the tv,
connect using the aux /rca connectors to cable box.
and or connect using the cable direct bypassing the cable box.
I have seen several complaints about the hdmi cable signal being incorrect in some way,
this is the same issue that the svideo connector had in its early adoption signal was too hot or too low.
another thing to watch out for is the low light sensor on the front of tv if it gets an incorrect reading it can flicker the back light though it should be slow in doing so.
some times the flicker you see is not flicker but ac running through the sides of the picture from an ungrounded cable source.
how does it perform if you play a dvd player , with and without the cable box connected.
