Check the Sat cable. If the cable is ok , then the antenna had been moved and lost its orientation.

The antenna must be moved until it reaches the right orientation, call Sky and ask them to send a technician to do the job, or do it yourself at your risk.

I have a panasonic viera 42 in plasma. It has a built in freeview receiver. It is in the bedroom and receives a signal through a booster from the main sky box. I can get free view channels on it but can't...


switch tv to analogue tv and auto tune on tuning menu making sure sky is on. It should find it around channel 69. If quality poor then change output frequency to a lower channel. You do this with sky menu and instruction book. Info is changing RF output in book, or google it.

My tomtom is not receiving any satellite signal


You should use your computer to update the QuickFix positions of the Satellites (they do wander in the sky). To get signals you should be outside buildings with an unobstructed view to the sky.

I want to use the gps and navigator on my nokia 5800 can you please help


The Nokia 5800 has a built-in GPS satellite navigation receiver, which can tell you where you are anywhere on the planet. The 5800 also has cell-tower-positioning technology, which finds your location using the position of the nearest phone network mast if a satellite signal is unavailable. GPS is more accurate but can take a while (from 10 seconds to a few minutes, depending on how obstructed the sky is) to find your position ('Assisted GPS' is also present, to download the expected GPS satellite positions from the Internet and help speed up your fix.)
The 5800 also has a built-in mapping application called Nokia Maps, which shows you your location on a street map, tells you exactly how to get to another location by driving or walking, and can give details of nearby amenities such as shops, fuel stations, museums, etc. Nokia Maps uses both GPS and cell tower positioning to tell you where you are: the latter gives an instant rough position, while GPS data is used after the phone has locked onto enough satellite signals calculate its position. You'll know the phone is locked onto a satelite as the lock indicator at the bottom of the screen will turn green.

Other phone applications can also use the GPS receiver if required. For example the camera application can optionally "geotag" photos with your current location using the GPS receiver to work out where you are (click here to see our camera tutorial and find out more about geotagging). If you switch to the standby or menu screens while an application is using the GPS receiver, you'll see a little satellite icon in the top right corner of the screen to indicate that GPS is active.

How does the 5800's GPS work? Like all satellite navigation systems, the 5800 receives signals from many different GPS satellites in the sky, and calculates your position based on those signals, using a combination of triangulation, signal delay calculation and a lot of very heavy maths that you really don't want to know about.

Important Note: Satellite signals cannot penetrate buildings, so GPS satellite signals will be difficult or impossible to receive if you are indoors and away from windows. If you want to speed up the process of GPS showing your location, take the phone outside or place the phone next to a large window with a good view of the sky.

The 5800's GPS aerial is inside the top left side of the phone. If you want to get a good GPS lock make sure this part of the phone is uncovered

Can record Sky programmes but not view live.


You must connect up the TV to the SKY box, via Audio Visual cables too, in order to watch, recorded programs. You need to hook, up, Component, HDMI, or Composite, You select it by an EXTERNAL channel.
Connect the cable running from the wall into the "In" port on the Sky Box HD receiver. This cable brings in the signal to your receiver. Make sure the cable is securely fastened to the receiver, otherwise you might experience image and audio issues.
Attach an HDMI cable into the HDMI port on the Sky Box HDTV receiver. The HDMI is a single cable that provides both HD audio and video signals.
Plug the other end of the HDMI cable into an available HDMI port on the HDTV.
Power on the HDTV and the Sky Box HDTV receiver. Press the "HDMI" button on the TV's remote control. This will display the cable contents of the HD receiver onto the television.

Wired my surroundsound with scart to my sky box but only left & right speaker with sound


scart can only support 1x video signal and 1x L and 1x R in one direction
if you have a scart cable with more than 3 cinch connectors then you have one for two way, but you want to send 5 audio and 1 video channel one way from sky box to your receiver.

looking at the spec, your receiver does support a digital coaxial connection ( cinch orange) and a digital fibre connection
it also supports composite 5.1 analogue connection which is where are most likely already connected.
it does not seem to be a HDMI device.
if your sky box also has digital coax or fibre I recommend using one of these
alteratively if you wish to use analogue input on your receiver then ensure your topbox has corresponding 5.1 cinch connectors.
usually labelled (center, front,surround and possible also subwoofer)

if your receiver can generate 5.1 from 2.0 stereo (dolby pro-logic II) then ensure this setting is selected on your receiver.

not knowing what your sky box details are I can not say what is the best option. also check that your sky box is sending 5.1 signal out as some programmes may only be being sent in stereo so prologic will have to be activated to generate 5.1 from stereo.

I recently bought a Garmin 200W Widescreen satnav. I have tried and found a satelite but each time when I take back indoors I loose it, is there anyway to lock the signal in after acquiring.


Hello snippey,

Global Positioning System satellites transmit radio signals which are received by your GPS receiver unit. Your GPS receiver uses these signals to calculate its current location, speed and altitude.

The GPS is not able to perform these calculations unless it is actually able to receive the radio signals from the satellites. Radio signals can be blocked by obstructions such as tall buildings, heavy foliage, tall hills and mountains, etc. Anything that prevents your GPS receiver from having a clear view of the sky will affect it's operation. This includes attempting to use the unit indoors or inside of a vehicle without an external antenna.

There is no way to "lock" the signals in. The GPS simply must be able to receive the signals and in order to do that it needs to be able to "see" the sky.

Hope this helps,
Ken
