You will need a DVD player with an optical output, as the sky engineer said. A Co-axial S/PDIF output could also work if your surround sound has that input, however not all units transmit surround encoded sound through the Co-Axial output. Only option really is to upgrade if that doesn't work

Virgin tvvo box


Not sure about about the transmitter but the magic eye thing is possible however you wouldn't be able to change channel unless your pointing your remote at your box because a sky box has power going through the magic eye but a virgin box doesn't

How can i tune all my sky channels to my dvd/vcr combo box


Hi sounds like the remote may be in the wrong mode , you can scan channels into the sky box or the TV/combo.
Make sure you are scanning them into the box not the combo.

Hissing and Humming when trying to use the speakers for the tv


The sony manual tells you how to connect to a TV however most of us now watch TV connected to a SKY box. The Scart lead needs to be connected to the Sky box for the sound to work correctly. Ignore the Manual and connect the Scart lead from the DVD Unit directly into you're sky box. It works fine.

I've bought a panasonic sound surround dvd player and want to link it to a sky+ box and tv so that sky will play in sound surround. Can you advise on the wiring configuration please?


look at the back of your tv does it have a audio out RCA jack?
it should do plug in the surround sound into that using RCA cables

if your tv does not have audio out RCA jack then you can

get a adapter which makes scart connectors turn into RCA jacks get that off ebay

plug the yellow line to the tv and connect the red and white to suround sound
but with this there are a few problems sound will only come out when surround sound is turned on and skys sound will never play out the tv
if you switch to a PS3 or something it will not play suround sound

yuo best option is the RCA plugs in the back of the tv

because you have not written the model number of the tv or the suround sound i cant help any further

Will this tv work without a converter box when everything goes digital?


Hi.

If your set only has Analogue tuner you will need either Sky. Virgin, Freesat, or freeview box to be able to watch TV channels.
