H57 projector does not work in HD mode

This projector used to accept and display HD from my SKY HD box. It was a bit hit and miss sometimes the picture was just full of different coloured grains and when I then switched off the sky box and switched it back on, it sometinmers worked in HD, but lately it doesn't work at all.

Any ideas why not.

Regards

Phil

SOURCE: Tv wont switch to Sky when remote control is pressed

Hi.
On the sky box do the following.

Check scart to tv is in the correct socket marked TV.
Try pressing services
then system setup
then picture settings.
Then try switching scart control to on or off.
If this sorts it great. If it doesnt check scart lead has all pins wired & not only A few.

SOURCE: Unable to Tune TV to Sky + RF output

Hi.

The problem is that the modulator output frequency of your sky box is exactly the same as for example chanel 5 on your terestrial aerial.
You need to change this number to a different one thats clear of local terestrial transmissions


1) Select the Services button on your Sky or Sky+ remote control.

2) Type in 401 [select] on your key pad and you will get to the installer menu. You cant gain access to this via the drop down menu as it is designed for the Sky Engineer to use.

3)
Select Option 4 to configure the RF outlets on your Sky Digibox.

4) The option RF Chanel Number change this number from example 35 to 60 .
You may need to do this using other numbers 26 34 55 etc
Every time you alter the number store it then try & tune TV to sky.
Any other sets in the house connected by RF leads will require retuning for sky.
Save new settings and you should find that your RF outlet to TV works fine.

SOURCE: sky magic eye not working on hd

I work for Sky as an Engineer.

on your Sky HD remote:

service,
4,
0 1 select
4
make sure the power is turned ON

now go to the room you can not change the sky channels over with.
you should notice on the magic eye itself should now have a Red led light on it now. you should now be able to change the channel over just remember to press the blue sky button on the remote at the top otherwise this will not operate the sky box.

If not unplug this magic eye and try this directly into RF out 2 to make sure that its not the magic eye that is at fault. If it is working correctly then the light will appear.

Hope this helps

I have a sony mp3 walkman i can connect the usb to the side of my tv and it will play my music files etc but when i connect it next to the sky viewing card on my sky hd box it says no connected devices...


Sky put the USB ports on the boxes in case they wanted to use them in future. They are there but not active.
Bit like the eSATA socket on the back, it isn't used yet but they had ideas to use it!

I guess if they had to replace boxes all over the country to put a USB in would have been a bit of an issue for them, so best they fitted one from the start...

Why is it that my Clearco HD9000 projector defaults to 1080i when connected to my SKY HD Satellite box, which is great but when connected to my Pansonic Blueray it defaults to 1080p resulting in lines down...


> 1080I

This is "interlaced" output -- the 1st horizontal line on the screen is painted,
then the 3rd, 5th, 7th, 9th, etc lines are painted, to the bottom of the screen,
then the 2nd, 4th, 6th, 8th, etc. lines are painted.

Your satellite box probably outputs both 720p and 1080i.

> 1080p

This paints the screen in order: 1st line, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, etc.
which some video-philes indicate produces a "better" picture,
i.e., smoother display of moving objects on the screen.

Your BluRay player probably outputs 1080p, because BluRay has been designed for High Definition displays.

So, check the manufacturer's web-site for the CLEARCO, to see if it supports 1080p mode.

I have a Bose 3.2.1. GSX Series 3 system. Recently, when playing DVD's I am getting sound only and a message on the TV screen saying 'No Signal' and on the 3.2.1. display 'communicating with your TV'....


Possible faulty lead or a poor connection. Has the new Sky Box been fitted to the HDMI socket the Bose had? Try switching sockets if there is more than one HDMI socket.

Could you please tell me if my LC-32GA5E tv can work with sky HD.The manual tells about switching to hd mode,but there seems to be no where to connect hd to the set.The tv is about 5 years old. thanks...


This is an HD ready TV and can definitely be used with Sky HD, but ONLY if the Sky box is connected to the TV with an HDMI cable. It will not work if connected with a scart cable.

So you need 2 things. Firstly, you need to buy an HDMI cable (see picture) if you haven't already got one. Secondly you need to locate the HDMI sockets on your TV and Sky box. The sockets will have the HDMI logo (see picture) next to them.

Please rate my solution if you find this helpful. Thanks.330cd4e.jpg

I can't project my image from my laptop to the projector..


A usb cable will not work that way--on your projector, it's used for data...you need to obtain a monitor cable which will plug into the vga connector on the laptop and into the connector on the projector (rgb in 1) or (rgb in 2) If you use the #2 rgb input, make sure the button IS NOT pushed in! If it is, the projector will be switched to OUTPUT mode on the #2 connector. Also, on the laptop, normal operation is "laptop only"...when you push the <alt F4> buttons, it should then switch to "laptop + external display(projector)", another <alt F4> push will give "external display only" mode. Then, another push will return you back to "laptop only". NOTE: Sometimes, you have to turn on the projector first, then immediately turn on the laptop--not to get technical but different equipment can get finicky about syncing up...just something to be aware of...

LE40R74BDX HDMI input stopped working


I work for sky as an engineer (not a subby)

HDCP is the encryption that is sent down when a program is transmitted. I have had this several times over the years and have found out that you need go to the manufactors web site or call them to update your telly this will sort out this problem.
I would do this sooner then later... reason I am telly you this is sky have take the Component inputs off all the sky boxes now.... The box you have is a THOMSON (have a look.... make you smile)lol this was due to people connecting there sky HD box to there pc via Component and using programs like Copy+ and extract + to copy the content.

If your box breaks down. then you are snookered if you telly is not going to accept the skyHD through a HDMI connection.

Hope this helps
