Hey guys, purchaged TATA Sky on 11th Oct 06' from yesterday I m facing some problem.
Whenever I switch off my digicomp and TV for say 10-15 min, after that when i on the digicomp video of the channel comes in frames i.e (ruk ruk ke aata hai) its not continuous as it shud be but sound is ok.
And after i change the channel and again check it thn video is proper too.
Other in between its working properly, only at the time of start.What is this?
Anyone came across this till now? Plz do tel me, as I m worried with this problem.

Even my digicomp got hanged 2 times frm tomorrow.

My STB has been changed to a HUMAX now. And now i have no problem.
See my signal details with a THOMSON digicomp:

And signal strength with a new HUMAX digicomp:

Even I have a thomson STB and have the problem. Maybe we should all change to HUMAX. How much does it cost to change to HUMAX?

If u surely r facing problem with thomson stb, then u should book complain for it and surely demand them to change ur problem. We r paying 1,000rs extra for installation and one yr warranty, hope u know that...
So demand it now......

If u can show them the problem ur facing then they have no other reasons to not change ur stb.
But initially they wnt change the stb. They wud start replacing all the things such as cable, adapter, connector, sensor at top of the dish and if still u have a problem then they will have to change ur card and stb.

Firstly they changed everything in my case, but problem was there and even they had seen it. So i did nt had to convince them for anything. They had initially changed my stb with a new thomson stb but i was still facing the same problem. So they got a Humax stb at the end and prblem was solved......
If u want any more help u can even call me..Will surely guide u what to do. Just pm me i will gv u my cel no.

Today TATA Sky people had come to my place to change my STB. They took their HUMAX STB back as it was for temporary peroid just to check the problem. They installed a brand new STB, but of THOMSON and even activated my card. For 2 hours i was facing no problem, but after that the same problem freezing of pictures when we on the STB from stand by mode.Called them again in evening they told that they can't provide me HUMAX STB as they dnt have it....Reallyy fed up of all this now.....Will b sending a fax tomorrow to Banglore office. see what happens then...

No I m in Gujarat. Finally my stb has been changed to a new HUMAX STB. My problem has been solved. As told by the engineer thomson doesnot support video frequency in some New TV models. Humax worked for me. Happy now...
Humax is better than Thomson in picture quality too. I get signal quality of 100% n see my signal strength.
