Question about Flat Panel Televisions

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?

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.

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:

You can either use the "Service" button and follow the onscreen guide for "program your remote"

Or

On your Sky Remote, away from your TV and Sky box (not pointing at either):

Press TV

Press SELECT then the RED button together for a couple of seconds.

You will see the light flash twice at the end of the remote

Press 0 6 4 6 SELECT

Your Remote should now work the TV Volume, Channels etc.

The HELP button switches the TV Source.

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

Stopped receiving sky on second tv - does my samsung need a reset


I install a lot of magic eyes etc.

You have checked that the magic eye lights up when it is connected directly into the sky box. So your eye is working correctly.

the next step I would take is with your sky remote in your main room. press SERVICES, 4, 0,1, SELECT go to RF settings and check the rf channel and make sure the power is on. Take a mental note of the channel number.

Now go into the room where the link is feeding. Turn on the TV and go to channel number 6 press your MENU button and then go down to setup. go across to manual install and then down to the channel number type in what you retrieved from you box ie rf channel and then type it in and STORE.

If you go into your main room and just put the normal tv guide on ie blue screen. then check that your getting the sky into the other room. IF you are then great it just needed tuning in. IF not I would remake the coax connectors. as there may be a bit of copper braid touching the centre core. once this is done your sky should be on all you need to do now is put the eye back on. Once you have done this the red light should appear on your magic eye. if not go to your main box and follow the first instructions I gave you and turn the power off on the RF and then save and then go back in and turn it back on and save.

Hope this sorts out your problem

Cheers
