Pink Sky?

Anyone had a pink screen with Sky TV? if so what causes it and how is it fixed?
Is it the satellite signal down or home hardware?
Got it now...
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Pink Sky?

Ah! thanks Jim. Unplugged Sky box for the "magic" 20 seconds. and problem fixed. In fact, reference to another comment in the forum in your link. I had indeed been connecting different scart connected hardware earlier today. But on the extension in the bedroom not the main living room box. It was a DVD HDD player and nothing really to do with Sky, so I don't really buy that as a reason.
Shutter, I prefer your answer, can we get an invite?.
