Sky Glass playing sound from playlist program when in tv guide, no picture, just sound.

So TV off, switch Sky Glass on, and sound from playlist program plays, the main menu is on screen, no preview pane in bottom right. Select TV guide, select a program, preview window appears in bottom right stating "Loading", then displays "Technical Fault". We're on our third TV by now, Sky send out a replacement glass tv, two days later, exactly the same problem. Helpdesk guy says "I've never heard of this before", that's why they replaced it. Before anyone says just unplug it for a few minutes, Been there, Seen it, Done it. I can't think of any other appliance or equipment that requires you to switch off ,leave for a few minutes, then switch on every couple of days. Personally I think that the "system" isn't fit for purpose, and Sky are just taking the **bleep**. I used to think issues with Sky Q were bad, but they were nothing compared to Sky Glass. 

Anyone else had this issue?

Might be a good idea to make a formal complaint rather than talk to Sky CSs😉

Can I suggest that before going down the route of a formal complaint the post clearly says it has been escalated so maybe wait to see if that brings any resolution.

@Fothergill1 do you mean @Bill+Ross  is on a third  TV and heading for a fourth?

@Exiled-in-HH  Yes, there is no question that they are certainly having a hard time and all credit for persevering, I would probably have given up.   I know the Glass TV is only a mediocre TV  with some rather suspect quality control but I can't believe all 3 of the Glass TVs have the same fault.  I would suspect there maybe some other issue at play but other than network couldn't hazard a guess what it is.  I note they also had issues with Sky Q which although wasn't perfect it was a pretty stable platform in the end..

 

My point was now that it has been escalated lets see what happens.  Then maybe make a formal complaint if the issues still persist.
