Question about Televison & Video
When changing channels, or at advert breaks the tv flashes the picture on and off. it does this sometimes at scene changes in a program as well. it falshes maybe four times when changing channel and then settles down and is fine, however, during some advert breaks, it will flash all the way through it. the tv is only a year old, and has had no other problems. it worked fine on free view, cable, pc and games consoles. just blooming sky
This is likely to be caused by the changing of the screen mode between ads and or programs, by your TV.
If so, changing the Sky output to 16:9 will fix it.
Select option 4 - System Setup
Select option 1 - Picture Settings
Change "Location 1" TV setting to 16:9 (This will make the Sky box handle any changes and give you a permanent widescreen output to your TV. This is the recommended setting for widescreen TVs, but sadly, few Sky installers bother to do it.
You can also change "Location 2" if you have a second widescreen TV connected in another room.
Whilst in this menu change the Video Output to RGB from PAL (If not set already) RGB gives a much more stable picture (particularly on the menu system)
Go to Save new settings and press [Select]
Exit the menu system, and you problem should be solved.

Follow the steps below
1. Select any channel on the TV.
2. Point your Sky+ remote control away from the TV and press the tv button.
3. Press and hold down the Select and red buttons simultaneously on the Sky+ remote control until the red light at the top of the Sky+ remote control flashes twice.
4. Input the 3 digit number from the Sky+ remote control codes then press the Select button. The red light at the top of the Sky+ remote control should flash twice.
5. Point the Sky+ remote control at the TV and try the volume button.
If this works try the other TV functions.
If these work then the correct code has been selected.
It's important to note that not all TV functions will be supported by the Sky+ remote control e.g. Picture in Picture.
If all functions do not work correctly, then repeat steps 1 - 3 and work through all the relevant 3 digit numbers from the Sky+ remote control codes, until you find the code which supports all or as many of the TV functions as possible.
Please note: In order to operate both your TV and Sky+ with your Sky+ remote control, you will be required to switch modes e.g. to switch on your TV from stand-by, you would need to press "TV" followed by the "Stand-by" button. Then to change channel on your Sky+ you would need to press the "Sky" button followed by the "TV guide" button.
