TV locks up the SKYdigibox

The SKY box appears to work fine with the little light on the front flashing when the remote is triggered; however, when switching on the TV (37WLT66 - Toshiba Regza) it locks up the Thompson SKY box until the TV input selector has been changed from the SKY input to a different one and then returned to the SKY input. Only then will the SKY box respond to the remote again. The SKY box is connected to a SCART input. Is there some setting for the SCART input to stop this from happening?

    The TV gets unplugged every night, fault still there in the morning. I thought I had fixed it with the EXT input setting; I changed it from AUTO detect to PAL but fault still there next time I switched on the TV.

I have a Samsung LED 40 inch model C6620 and we have Sky HD box. All of a sudden we cannot switch off the TV from the Sky remote and also cannot control the volume or mute button. Everything else is...


Try this...Press tv on the sky r/c.

Then hold the select and red button at the same time,the red light should flash twice.

Then enter the code 1340,the red light should flash twice.

The press the standby button on the sky r/c,the tv should turn off,if it does then press select button on the r/c to store settings.

Hope this will work for you.

I have acquired a Panasonic NV-FJ620B-S Video Cassette Recorder which has 2 x scart sockets on the back. 1 marked AV2 DECODER/DECODEUR(EX) the other AV1 (TV). The AV1 scart connector works fine on the TV...


Have just visited the Panasonic UK website and the User Manual for the Panasonic NV-FJ620B-S is available free. It lists on page 11 all the details. I'll e-mail it you Tom to see if it helps.

Unabel to use sky control for sound


You have to programme the correct code for your TV into the Sky remote.

You can get these via "Sky Active" (if your box is connected to a phone line) or from the Sky website, or google search: "Sky remote codes".

However your sky remote wont necessarily control more recent televisions unless you have a REV8 remote control. You can check this by taking the battery cover off your remote and looking at the sticker inside. If it says RC1600/00 you're probably not going to be able to control your TV. REV4 and REV6 are more likely to work - but not guaranteed. If it says REV8, then you are probably not using the correct code or you're not programming the remote correctly.

If you have REV8, the correct code for your TV (according to Sky) is: 0678 or 1678 or 0254

Sky remote code finder page is here: http://sky.uebv.com/

Sky guide to finding your remote code and programming remotes is here:

Conect sky remote to sky+ box


Hello Jolene725,

If you are using a standard remote / HD remote for a sky + then you will have to press the following buttons:
TV
SELECT + i (flashes twice)
1
SELECT

You now should be able to use the standard remote with the Sky+ box.
Just bare in mind that using the standard remote you dont have the buttons to pause, record, etc.

Hope this has helped you out. If so then please leave a thumbs up

Cannot get my sky guide to respond on my Loewe Articos 32,i think the kids have scrambled the tv remote! Any ideas?


There are several things that can stop your Sky remote from working.

step one:
get a mobile that has a camera on it. point the remote at the camera and press the TV guide button on the remote you should see a little light by looking through your camera. This is because cameras dont like infrared

if you see the light whilest looking from the camera phone then the remote is working.

Step 2:
There can interfearance from devices like WII's or if your television has a back light you can turn this down and see if this is going to make any difference to the sky box.

If it does you know what is casuing the problem.

Step 3:
There may be another solution to your problem. Go onto Ebay and type in there Magic eye. you can get them from Argos but you will be paying 3 times if not more then you can get them off ebay.

once you've got the magic eye. plug this into the back of your sky box into RF OUT 2 this must be in 2 due to it providing 9v to the eye.
on your sky remote press services, 4, 0 1 select. go to Rf setting and turn this option to ON and then go down to save. you should see a little red light on the magic eye come on this is all done.

Now try your remote as normal.

I fit sky and a lot of the HD sky+ boxes have rubbish IR (infrared) so this sorts out a lot of problems.

Hope this helps

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 an LG 42lg30 and the user manual does not show you how to program other divices remote codes so the LG remote controls my cable box and dvd player. Does anyone know how this remote works?


go and buy a universal learning remote and you will be able to program all your devices on the remote, works very nice. as far as the lg remote, dont think there is a way where u can program your cable and dvd onto the remote and I have lots of experiences with LG
