Re: no sound on the hd setting on my lcd phillips hd tv
Look in the owners manual about installing devices or components--- sounds like you have something hooked up wrong that is not allowing the video and sound to work--- if that doesnt work--- try using a combination device and hooking the two items to it--then run that device's wires to the television

Sounds like the "channel" you are trying to watch on is not the one it's plugged into, or a faulty lead. check the connection from the sky box to the tv, and select the av or hdmi channel that it is plugged into on the tv. check the lead by swapping it for a known good one, for example from a dvd or ps3, but unplug from the dvd/ps3 and plug into the sky box(make sure that all the units are powered off when swapping leads) and try on the channel you normally watch/use the dvd/ps3. If you suspect the sky is at fault, press menu on the sky remote and then flick through all the av/hdmi channels until you find the menu, then try to reinstall/retune the sky box. If that don't work phone sky......................
1 Press volume +/- or Mute
2 If it does not work then check if the 'speaker' is set to 'TV speaker' from the "AV set up" menu in "Settings"
3 Press Menu and select Settings. Go up/down and select Set Up icon.Press enter
4 In AV Set up go to speaker and turn on the TV Speaker. This should solve your problem
you will need the following = HDMI LEAD
Optical Audio Lead
Red and White phono Lead
Sky HD Box > connect to Tv via HDMI Lead.
Sky HD box > Connect the optical Audio, and the Phono Leads To your Surrounds sound.
The reason I am wanting you to connect the phono's as well as the optical audio out. Not all programs are transmitted with Dolby D so you will need these for normal sound to come through your surround sound.
One last thing I would like you to check is the sound settings on your Hd box.
OLD PROGRAM GUIDE:
On your sky remote. Press SERVICES, 4, 2, then ensure that Dolby D is displayed if not highlight and using the blue button change this to Dolby D. then arrow down to save.
NEW PROGRAM GUIDE:
On your sky remote. Press SERVICES, 0, Arrow along to SOUND then arrow down and change this to DOLBY D Then press the GREEN button.
Hope this Helps you out. IF so please leave a thumbs up
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!
