Do you just have one feed going into the back of the Sky box?.....if so you need to go into the setup and enable the single input in there....Happened to me!!

OH NO it isn't!
That lasted 12 hours. This morning, no epg & no record. Another system reset & works again. Phoooo!!!
Input 1 says no signal
Input 2 75%
yesterday it was the other way around ...
What's the transport stream?

It was ALL working 'till sky changed the EPG.
If I ring sky - they will offer to send an engineer round ( 2 day round trip by plane)

p.s. didn't intend this to be a sticky - its now NOT solved!
any ideas people??

Try a software download, there have been some strange reports coming in regarding SkyHD receivers and intermittent goings on. Assume you've checked the obvious feed connections on both receiver and LNb :D

After software download & system reset - input No. 1 = 50% signal, No.2 =0; no epg.
Did another system reset, now input no.2 = 75%, No.1 = 0 and yes I have epg.
If I pull the cable out of input No.1 (has no input) loose the picture & sound.
What a heap of $h1t.

A sfar as we know the HD box epg is only carried on a 2B north tp, and theres lots of epg problems in areas that have difficulty getting this beam.
