SOURCE: Poor picture quality on cable input

Try swapping some cables around, like the skart lead from the dvd(if scart) for the cable one, if the picture problem swaps with the lead then thats the problem. If it doesn't try settings on the cable and tv, if the cable is sending nvbs signals and the tv is set to pal then this can also occur.

Hello lily liver,
The problem with the television not being able to receive signal from the remote seems not to be too strange a problem as these devices can come up with mind bursting problems.
The problem with the television simply is from the sensor of the television. There is a metal that holds the televisions sensor so as for it to be able to receive signal from the remote. The metals could be rusty and break off the position where it is meant to be and would be having partial contact on the main board of the television.
The entire control panel is also linked to this sensor board, that is why it acts funny once in a while. The best thing to do is to have the control panel on the television replaced as well as the sensor light on the television. It is no longer receiving signal properly from the remote.
Resetting the television could last only for a period of time, therefore, the lasting solution to the problem is simply for you to have the control panel of the television replaced as well as the remote sensor that is in the television.
The solution to the problem is simply for you to replace the control board and the sensor of the television. That would solve the problem for you.
Hope this information was helpful in solving the problem. All the best Elect_Comp

Apex Digital LD4088 LCD TV has horrible quality on cable but fine quality with dvd or ps3


try if you are not, routing signal for comcast via the rear AV jacks--if poor reception that way not the set but the incoming signal.

Most people who are paying for cable or whatever do not complain hard enough--just accept lousy signal and pay for it.

If its poor complain and keep complaining----in most cases there are alternate signal providers eager to jump in.

Wil my tv work with out remote


There are quite a few ways to connect cable box, DVD, receiver and TV together. At a minimum---Connections between DVD and a/v receiver: For Audio, either digital coaxial, digital optical or simple RCA (CABLE ONE); If you did not use RCA you need to connect Video with either component or s-video (CABLE TWO). For connection between a/v receiver and TV: either component, s-video or RCA (CABLE THREE) You did not mention how your cable (or sattelite) box is connected. You could use same set-up as between DVD and a/v receiver for another one or two cables depending on set-up used.connecting the speaker wires of an RCA TV to an amplifier: The signal that is fed to the speakers is not designed to be fed to the line-level inputs of your amplifier. You'd need some kind of conversion and I can't tell you exactly what that would be.

Get some double-screened satellite cable and fit a female TV plug to it (or a male plug with an adapter). Connect it to RF Output 2 at the rear of your Digibox. Fit a TV plug to the other end and plug it into your TV.

Temporarily disconnect the aerial feed from the Digibox aerial socket. Switch the Digibox on to get a picture on your main TV. The Sky Digibox normally sends its signal out on UHF channel 68 so go to the second TV and tune it to 68 (or tune it till it finds the Sky picture).

Now plug the aerial cable back into the Digibox. If there is now interference on the Sky picture on the second TV (or on the terrestrial channels) your Sky signal on 68 is causing interference. Press [services] 401 [select]* and set the RF output to a different UHF channel number. You need to connect it via a Scart lead on your main TV in order to see the menu.

*In the new EPG (April 2009) it's [services] 001 [select]

Try each RF output channel number in turn (21 - 69) and retune the second TV until you get clean pictures on the terrestrial channels and the Sky channel. Also check the picture from the VCR (if connected).

This is just a brief overview. If you need a real in-depth explanation you should read the "Piping TV Around the House" Ebook by satcure.

I've got a goodmans tvc202ts with no remote can i still tune it in and how? or can i tune it in if i set up my sky remote?


Hi, if you connect your sky box to the TV by SCART the TV will automatically switch to aux so you can watch sky that way. The same goes for DVD players, digiboxes etc, but not anything that connects with component video like my Playstation :(

Watch tv properly with JVC DVD off


Some philips tv's have a built in aerial amplifier, perhaps if you bought a digital aerial booster it will improve the picture quality.

I'd like to connect my fujitsu 42" plasma to sky digibox. Is this done by the video-in connection, and where do I find a connection wire please?


Take a SCART lead and connect the output from the SKY box and connect to anyone of the SCART sockets on the TV. Alternatively take the digital out from the Sky box to a digital input on the TV. The necessary connection wires can be obtained from most TV Retailers, Electrical Chain Stores, Some PC dealers, online at eBay, etc. Direct Digital connection will give the best quality picture and if you use a SCART cable then make sure it is high quality thick shielded cable and gold flashed connectors as there are many inferior products out there.

Hi Martin,

A wiring Schematic is not that you should be looking. What you need is large feeders to understand hot to connect to various ports to give your desired output.

Samsung le40a lcd - picture quality


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!

Digital TV


Hi,
right hdtv stands for high definitian tv witch basically means if you buy a hd dvd player or blueray then you can watch the films in really high quality alot better than normal dvd. The same if you had cable tv or sky you pay a fee for an hd converter then this lets you watch certain channels in high def. So it basically means that your telly is capable of using all the new hd equipment thats coming out like the playstation 3 can play high def dvd's as long as you buy the hd lead as you need this due to the fact that it sends more data to the telly their for giving alot better sound quality and alot better piture quality when watching hd dvd's.
At the moment their are only a few tv channels that are using hd at the moment but this will soon change.
So to watch hd dvd youll need an hd dvd player and to watch hd tv you need to contact your cable or sky people and ask them what you need to do to watch hd programmes. they will then upgrade your box and should send you an hd lead to plug into your telly from the sky or cable box.
Hope this is helpfull and easy to understand.

Hd is well worth having as the quality is amazing you wont believe it till you try it i was shocked as the detail and quality is mind blowing its like watching real life, it really is that good.

Let me know if you need further assistance ok

When watching dvd having showing or fade background


yes it can be down to signal degradation especially via scart lead, make sure you use a decent scart if you buy an expensive one you can tell the difference. Run a cable from your sky digibox direct to your tv to see if the picture improves.
