PDAMan: OK so I got my MySky and love it, the Cricket is looking great even if we probably won't win, but every 10 minutes or so the screen goes black for a couple of seconds and then cones back. Has anyone else had that problem? It's like the signal drops out.
PDAMan: No it happens on all channels, the audio dissapears for a second but comes back well before the video. Last night during the league test it spat the dummy altogether and I had to so a soft reboot. Still kept happening after too.

PDAMan: It appears my problem is between the MySky and the TV. When the picture disappears during playback on MySky, if I rewind and play again, the picture was there, so it can't be the MySky itself that is the problem, it must be something to do with the signal going to the TV. It doesn't seem to make any difference whether the program is HD or not.
Sounds like an HDMI/HDCP issue. If the signal is momentarily disturbed the HDCP re-handshakes to establish a connection. Have a trawl through this forum and you'll find some other postings on similar problems. One suggestion was to go to Dick Smith and buy another HDMI cable to see if that fixes it. If not you can return the cable for a full refund no questions asked.
My set does the same thing albeit very infrequently.
