Although the screen is capable of the high resolution, it is not HDMI compatable and has no way of feeding in a digital hdmi signal other than some messy lashups. I have one of these screens and spent a fair bit of time looking into it...

Is a Philips SB329986 HD enough for Sky HD?


Cant find specs on your Model. If it is HD 720i or 1080i both will work. But then again the Sky box may convert the HD to composit, which makes ordinary old TV sets look fantastic. On a HD set they look even better. don.t worry it will work.

In order to get any of the Freesat channels, you need to connect a Satellite dish to your TV. If you have a Sky dish, you simply need to run an extra Cable from the LNB from the dish and connect to your socket on the back of your TV.
In order to get Freeview channels and Analogue channels, you need to connect a aerial to the back of the TV.
There is a menu option for the TV to start straight to the AV input (your Sky HD box). It is Menu > Setup > Other Settings > Power on Preference. Select 'AV' for your TV to start on Sky HD.
Also even if you have your TV to start on TV, when you turn on your Sky HD box, it should automatically switch to the Sky box.

Ive just moved to a house with sky all ready and have not got a clue how to set the thing up. I have a 50in PS-50Q96HD Samsung HDTV Plasma. I have the sky cable and the normal tv cable, what goes were...


first of all you would need to have a Sky HD set top box.

The cables coming into the wall.. you said one was the terrestrial aerial and the other was a sky cable. In order for you to benefit from Sky HD you would need twin cable or two single cable running from your sky dish.(allows you to record a program and watch another etc.

summary:
skyHD box
two feeds coming from your dish,
there is only one place these can go as they are screw on ie F connectors. so they would screw onto input 1 and 2 on the back of the Hd box.
Run a HDMI cable from the back of the sky box from the HDMI port to one of the HDMI ports on the back of your telly. last but not least you would need to get a power cable (kettle plug) to power the thing.

In regards to your terrestrial aerial you can plug this directly into your telly or via your aerial in port on the back of the skyHD box. then you would have to run an aerial cable from the RF out 1 or 2 to the back of your telly this would allow you to record two things on your Sky HD box then switch to your built in freeview that your telly has.

Hope this has answered your questions

Cheers

Digital TV


It is HD ready, which means to get HD you will need to connect a HDMI cable to a HDMI source such as a SKY HD / VIRGIN HD SET TOP BOX or a HD DVD player to take advantage of HD.
