    BV 7-40 and Sky

    Hi all

    My 7-40 is controlling my SkyHD box (samsung).  Everything works fine with the exception of an annoying time delay when I use my Beo4 remote to control the sky menus.

    For example, if I pause live TV, rewind and then press go to play it can takes 3/4 seconds to accept the request.  This makes the Be04 unusable fro anything other than basic commands.  ( the cable is located as close to the IR transmitter asI can get it)

    Naturally and as you would expect the standard Sky controller has an instance response.  

    Any ideas?

    I have version 8.02 SW on my TV.  

    Thanks in Advance.

    I would check the position of the remote sensor as I had this problem with my SKy+ - on the samsung I think it's underneath the card slot but on makes to the left of teh slots - maybe look up on the internet as others will have had this problem. Apparently some of the Samsung boxes also had a problem with the remote eye stopping working and a software update is required - this link gives details on how to do this

    If you mean the remote takes a while *specifically* for pressing Go and the Sky box hitting 'Play', then this is normal behaviour.

    As Go is needed to preceed just about everything else (RW/FF, Up/Down, 1-8 etc.), then it can't assume you mean 'Play' when you hit it - there's a ~3 second timeout.  If you want a quicker way to play once you've finished FF/WW, just hit 'Stop' to pause and then 'Stop' to unpause.

    Hi Paul


    There has always been a delay when you press GO to resume Play with all makes of Sky boxes stemming back to Pace Sky+.

    If you are fast forwarding and wish to Play, press STOP followed by STOP again and it will resume play instantly. If you want to Ffwd X30 press Go once then >> 4 times in quick succession.


    Hope this helps?Smile
