I have just taken delivery of a Panasonic TX-L32ET5B TV and it was set up by the engineer from the shop. all was well until trying to watch Freeview. It will stay on Freeview from anywhere between 30 seconds and over an hour but, eventually will change itself to EC/HDMI1 - irrespective of whether my Sky+ HD box is switched on or on standby. I also have a video player and a DVD player connected which both worked when I turned them on but I haven't played anything on them so am unsure if they will also 'change' to the Sky input whilst watching. Could it be a connectin problem? I'm a complete novice with this kind of thing....

Marie: The engineer used a mini single SCART lead to the TV - only one SCART socket on it - and connected the SCART from the SKY+ box to the other end of that lead, (SCART to SCART if that makes sense?). Then he made a connection from the SKY+ box to the DVD and Video - I couldn't tell you how he did that though... Sorry....

Marie: Tried to answer to this last night but home computer wouldn't play - not having any luck with anything electrical right now!
I checked all the connections and I hadn't quite got it right. There is a HDMI lead from the 4th socket up labelled as HDMI1 and that is connected to the Sky+ HD box. Then SCART leads connect Sky to DVD and DVD to VCR. Then a SCART runs to to an AV1 adaptor which is plugged in to the TV. I haven't unplugged anything as yet though as when I read the setup instructions in the manual, it clearly states to connect the HDMI lead from HDMI1 socket to the satellite receiver. If, as you say, nothing should be connected to the HDMI1 socket which socket should it be connected to?
