Just got a hdmi switch so can use one input on tv, with up to 5 devices plugged into box at same time. Tv has only 3 plugs, but i have more then three things to plug into tv.

With mysky, all i get is a purple screen on tv, yet using same cables ps3 is running fine through it.
Guy at dicksmiths when rang them to say it wouldn't work said it should work fine with sky, only got idea to test with something else after phone call.

When brought didn't ask if worked with sky, just expected it to as has on it that it'ts hdcp compliant. Dse only do repairs, swap outs now, don't refund money, as nothing wrong with it guessing they won't be interested, but it wasn't unreasonable of me to think i could plug mysky into it when buying so wonder where i stand.

Can have sky plugged directly into tv, and run other devices through it, just find it crazy that sky won't work with it.

Plugged mysky back in and working now. Only difference i can think of in set up, is the splitter is in different position, futher away from power point. Wonder if it was magnetic field close to power point corrupting signal?

Sometimes the 'handshaking' between two HDMI devices gets 'broken' and you get no signal... May have just come right after the devices renegotiated the connection.
