I have a Pioneer VSX-520 that has 4 hdmi inputs and single hdmi output. We went out for tea and when we came back and turned the tv and receiver on there was no sound from the my-sky box. This is plugged into the tv/sat input and when you swap the hdmi cable over to the dvd input you get sound again (by switching over to the dvd input on the receiver).
Would this mean the tv/sat channel is naffed , could the other channels be on the way out as well if this is the case ??.
Worth getting fixed if this is the case or a chance to get a newer receiver ??

I used to have an issue with the MySky I had where to disable the HDMI and reenable it every once and a while to get it to work again.  I dare say unplugging it would do the same thing.

this occasionally happens to me with sky. 

Generally i reboot the sky box and it is back to normal.

HDMI is both a good and bad protocol, it's main downfalls are handshake issues and dodgy cables. You may want to consider replacing your cables. Also if you hot swap HDMI cables you should restart the devices to correctly handshake.

Sorry guys should have given more detail. Cable is fine as direct link from mysky to tv works fine. Swapping cable from tv/sat input on receiver to dvd input gives sound fine (mysky and receiver both turned off first).
I have had the same problem you mention with the sound setting and mysky however this time its not the problem as changing it does not help.

This is why I am thinking the input for the tv/sat on the receiver is naffed as I get sound perfectly fine just with the dvd input directly under it.

Have you got another HDMI source you can test in the Sat input on the receiver?
