Engineer came today and replaced box and haven't got the black screen back yet, I noticed that the box doesn't have the new firmware on it yet, is there any way to stop the auto update as I have a bad feeling that it's going to update over night and bring back the black screen problem with it?


Thanks for the info.  Would be good to know if the issue starts after the firmware on your box is updated   I was not aware of the issue before the last update.  I have the V2 (external power supply) box.


I have same box, it didn't update yet, the current firmware on it is Q071.000.29.00L (4x4gj4k)

@zebman101 it would be sensible to force an update in the Settings/details go to the right of the firmware version - running old firmware can cause issues.

Re: I keep having to reset my Sky Q box to be recognised by my TV

Tried a Lindy CEC less inline adaptor today. Unfortunately can still 100% reproduce the issue so I wasted my money. If the sky Q box is on and you change the HDMI input then when going back to the sky Q box there is just a blank screen.  The box has to be rebooted to restore the display.  When the sky Q box is not displaying it still functions.   As has been already said when the box is turned off the audio outputs for a few seconds before the led turns amber.

 

So in my case the sky box must be turned off before switching the HDMI input.

 

l am hoping Sky acknowledge this as an issue and offer a permanent fix.

Re: I keep having to reset my Sky Q box to be recognised by my TV

I have twice had the same problem since the Q080 update - exactly the same symptoms, black screen, no audio; audio outputs briefly if set to standby.

Display can be recovered by plugging in a different monitor, which then puts the Sky Q into 1080i mode.

It is not consistent in what triggers it - e.g. I can switch to/from the hdmi port without an issue.

Prior to Q080, I had ZERO problems with the display set to UHD for 3-4 months since the box was installed.

I am not aware of any formal response from Sky. Best of luck on Monday. It would be good if you could post the the outcome. Another post did mention a replacement box fixing the issue although it was supplied with the previous firmware revision.

Glad my tip worked for you😁. It’s all about Sky’s implementation of HDMI on the Q box.

Having the exact same problems as described in the last few pages, and it's all very well saying 'well my box is fine so it can't be the firmware' sorry but that's nonsense, all depends how things are configured. For anyone that's not having any problems how have you got your box connected to your TV and what TV is it?
