You cannot drive both from a single cable. You require a dual LNB fitted to your dish (replacing the single LNB). This has two cables out , one to sky and the other to the TV. If you have your own dish this should not be a problem.

    You can use just the Sky by putting the satellite cable into the Sky box and connecting the Sky box to the TV with a Scart cable.

Sky problem


Freeview has nothing to do with satellite. FreeSAT is the one that uses a satellite dish for reception. FreeVIEW is received through the aerial.

Also, don't fall for the "digital aerial" scam. I install aerials as part of my business. I've been to homes with aerials 20 years old, covered in soot from the chimney and they still pick up Freeview perfectly well. Equally, I've been to homes where the owner has bought some gold plated multi-finned "digital high gain" monstrosity that has awful reception characteristics.

If your TV aerial is okay, then just plug it in to your Freeview receiving TV and do the tuning.

If you do want Freesat then you will need a satellite dish along with a Freesat receiver.

Panasonic TX-32LZD81 (freesat) 18 months old. Worked perfectly until yesterday, has sound but no picture (black/blank screen) for Freesat TV channels. Same problem with other devices such as PS3 and Wii....


First, look at the screen in darkened room to see if you can see any slight glow from the screen, if it does, then the problem can be the T-CON (not getting the 12vdc) or the main logic board not feeding the signals to the T-CON board.
if not, next place to check will be the power supply module, make sure it has 24vdc which is required by the backlight inverter to work, the reason for not having 24vdc can be from bad DC filter caps (leaking/bulging top, high ESR) or short circuits in the inverter board which will cause the 24vdc supply to go into shutdown mode, so you may have to disconnect the power cable that feed the inverter board to see if the 24vdc will work without the inverter board hookup, you will need to apply about 3~4 amp of load to the 24vdc to make sure it can handle that. There are fuses on the backlight inverter boards also. So there is some troubleshooting you will have to do to find out the causes of the problem you are having.

I have a Panasonic TX-L37G10B TV which has Freesat and that works OK on my Sky Satellite dish but I can not seem to get the Sky box to work, I have tried a Scart lead


A lot of scarts simply don't work, The BEST way to hook up, is either SVHS mode plug and AV, or better yest, use the Component Video, Blue, Red, Green, ALL Video. Audio is the Red & White, Jacks, wire color to color.

How do I setup my full hd freesat tv I have sky + do I take the dish cable out of the sky box or do I need another cable from the dish


If you really want to do this, well then you could use and antenna switcher, a small control box that the Antenna from the dish plugs into it and the Sky Box & Freeview each, plug separately into that box too, and then, you can select, which one the antenna is connected to. (Some even have remotes) OR you could simply "Split" the signal "IN" with an Antenna "Splitter" and run one feed to Sky & the other to Freeview. Now thats all amusing that you can get freeview from that Dish.

Just bought a Panasonic TX-P42G10B 42in 600Hz Full HD with freesat HD built in. We currently have Sky +, but i was unwilling to pay the extra a month for the sky HD service. Therefore this tv seemed fine....


Use a good quality scart leads for starters.
connect oon end to tv and the other labeled tv on sky box. The other is labeled vcr. connect another lead from vcr or dvd to that connection.
If you have a hd dvd player or Bluray, then buy a HDMI lead and connect straight to one of the HDMI inputs on the tv. I know this is late but i hope it still helps you and anybody else who may read this.

Unable to hook up my ''Dish'' cable to the TV


If the cable comes from the dish,then unless you have a freesat tv that will not connect into your tv.The cable from a dish normaly connects into a sky box or cable box.You need a cable from an aerial to connect into the tv.

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.

I am about to receive an LG32LF4700 Freesat/HD TV If I disconnect the SKY Box and connect the TV direct to the Dish cable will I receive Freesat HD channels. Also can I connect an extra bedroom TV into the...


Yes you can split the signal out from the back of the Freesat/HD (not the TV)to the second TV.
Look what outputs are on the Freesat box - the RF (standard cable) output should go to the 2nd TV (TV set to CH3) and the a/v cables,HDMI or DVI cable should go to the new TV - Note:To receive HD the output from the Freesat should be either HDMI,DVI or Composite output (RGB video jacks) with red White for audio. If you have HDMI this is best - it also provides audio.

Hello,

Most likely the failure of the Screen.

If you purchased the product new, and have the receipt Panasonic will repair it FOC from what I understand, at least 3 years, your TV is no where near that old yet.

If you bought it, but don't have the receipt.....
