Hi, I have to say the only time I have seen HDMI issues (and not just with MySky but various brands of BD players) is when there have been minor noise spikes in the local power, ie someone plugs a heavy load in or switch mode supply direct online in the house and you get a momentary loss of connection/blackscreen then HDCP reconnect. so might be worth checking things like fridges/freezers that might have bad/noisy thermostats etc.

Hi,

I know the other devices I connect through HDMI have no issues, I am assuming that the box has picked up a bad SW update maybe? Or because I have it sitting on top of my home theater system causing heat? Or what about interference from other things I have around? Also One night it kept on loosing connection to the tv over and over so I reset the box with the red button and that fixed it for about 3 weeks.

Heat kills equipment very quickly.
