    Sounds similar to when the tube on my TV went. That was terminal. It was beyond economical repair.

    Sky+ - you could always buy a s/h box, a new LNB and some wire then do the install yourself. A s/h box will cost anything from £40 - £80 depending on capacity, age and condition. A quad LNB probably £10'ish Then you just have your cable to buy and some time. After you've done the install you just need to upgrade your viewing package.

    Try a new scart lead first. Had a friend with a similar problem, sky menus inverted/burry/fuzzy etc. yet the picture/sound was fine. Whacked in a new scart lead and problem solved!
