Bought tv yesterday and have connected tv to sky + box however the picture is poor. tried changing aerial and scart but still the same. picture appears grainy and faces are not clear as they used to be with a older tv??? can this problem be solved or is there a problem with the tv??
You may have got a bad unit but more likly it's your cable you are using I have found with the newer HD units the siganal has to be real clean coming in or you do get a distorted picture. Try changing out you cable lead for a good quality cable,

If I understand your problem the Y splitter is a passive splitter which mean that the centre pins are connected via capacitors this will degrade the picture on one or both outlets, the Sky box should be connected via a scart or HDMI connection
hello firstly scart lead from sky box to tv1 in) this is at the top there are two AV inputs ,,,on the bottom AV slot this is where your DVD conects too).iff you are using sky you will not need aerial in back of tv as this is for analogue use such as indoor antenna or outdoor antenna or iff using horizon the scart lead will suffice for all goodluck
Are you using the freeview tuner, I only ask as it looks like your having a similar problem that I had a few months back. I moved into a new house and plugged in the tv. Using the freeview tuner I wasnt able to get any channels. It turned out although the aerial picked up regular analogue tv it wasnt the correct aerial for freeview.
connect the aerial to the dvd/vcr/freeview combo, connect a scart from that to the tv, from the scart out socket. you can then connect the sky from the scart marked tv to either the tv direct or to the combo if it has a second scart. Note. a scart socket with an arrow going into a box is an input, coming out of the boe is an output and a double arrow is a two way scart. if you use scart 2 on the tv to connect the combo, the combo will recieve a signal from the tv for recording.
Hi - I have some suggestions. The following factors effect picture quality:
1. Source (because LCD TVs have much higher picture quality than traditional CRT "Tube" TVs, the worse your source material, the worse it looks on a LCD TV).
DVD and Sky/Digital TV should look excellent on this TV when connected with a good quality Scart lead (nothing too expensive, but a Oxygen Free Copper Gold lead may help) directly into one of the TV's Scart inputs (avoid using "switching" boxes for multiple equipment).
Also, bear in mind that this is a HUGE screen (40 inches I think) and will REALLY show up bad source material.
The best advice I can give is, if you have HD-ready equipment use HDMI connections for everything (ideally with an HD-uplscaling DVD player which will "improve" the quality of standard DVDs on the TV - I recommend models by Philips) and check that you are in "Movie" or "Cinema" mode on the TV.
Make sure that all of your equipment, like your Sky digibox, is set to 16:9 mode (not 4:3) aswell to preserve the true widescreen aspect ratio.
Hope that helps!
Find out if Australia uses a different standard of HD programming than Guernsey or not since it's not picking up any channels at all with an attenna. Does the skybox use only scart connections and that's how your small lcd is connected to it?
on the back of your sky box there are two scart ports. one says tv and the other video.
from the sky box connect a scart from the tv port to the back of your tv.
from the DVD connect a scart from that to the video scart port on the back of your sky box.
now when you turn your DVD player on it will override the sky and come through on your telly without having to change the scarts around.
what i would like you to do now. is get an RF lead. ( aerial lead) plug this into the RF out socket on the back of your sky box either one will do ie RF out 1 or 2 makes no difference.
Then plug the other end into the back of your Tv if you have an aerial cable coming into your home then simply plug this straight into the aerial port on the back of your sky box.
The last thing your going to have to do now is tune your telly in. if you click on channel 6 on your telly then go to menu, setup, and manual tune.. A good tip for you put your sky on the TV GUIDE screen this will make life easier for yourself as you will know its the sky channel.
once you find it STORE.
now when you turn your dvd player on if you select channel 6 you will now have the sky channel so you can record whatever you like
