Sharp Aquos and PC means Sky+ remote no longer working
I've bought a Aquos LC-37D65E and plugged in my sky+ box into SCART and my PC using a DVI to HDMI cable. Everything works fine until I use the PC. This then makes the Sky+ remote not work with the Sky+ box. If I power down the PC then the remote starts working again.
Am I missing something. I am running XP Media Centre if that makes any difference.

This is an HD ready TV and can definitely be used with Sky HD, but ONLY if the Sky box is connected to the TV with an HDMI cable. It will not work if connected with a scart cable.
So you need 2 things. Firstly, you need to buy an HDMI cable (see picture) if you haven't already got one. Secondly you need to locate the HDMI sockets on your TV and Sky box. The sockets will have the HDMI logo (see picture) next to them.
Please rate my solution if you find this helpful. Thanks.
I have the same amplifier, a Sky + HD box, an LCD TV an surround speakers. We wont go into the Wii, PS3 and PC also hooked up. Essentially the best way to go (whatever you connect up) is to split the video and audio signals.
Sky: The Sky box has an audio outputs (left and right channel) found at the back of the box. You get some twin audio cables, plug into the back of the Sky box and the other end into the Kenwood Amp (for example we use Video 1). This means that the sound from Sky can be found on Video 1 on the Amp.
You take the video signal (picture) from Sky using a SCART cable and put into the back of your panasonic TV. This does mean that you can watch a picture without the sound and listen without a picture. The Amp remote controls the sound, the Sky / TV remote controls the picture.
You may need to tinker with some settings on the Amp, for example on the front of the Amp you will find a source button, toggle through the 3 or 4 options to give you the right sound. But essentially that should be it. The same process is used for any other things you want to add, like a DVD player, a games console and so on.
IF there is a scart port plug your av receiver into the scart. Take note on which number your on ie channel there should be several numbers you can choose on your tx/rx then go down stairs to your sky box and ensuring that you are on the same number as the one upstairs.
Then just plug it into the back of your sky Box.. the number on your sender are incase your getting interfearance from other sources in the home. have a play with this and see what works best
press the power button if this turns your TV off then press SELECT to save. If not press TV then POWER. repeat this step until it does turn your tv off remember to press the SELECT button to save the code.
Check scart to tv is in the correct socket marked TV.
Try pressing services
then system setup
then picture settings.
Then try switching scart control to on or off.
If this sorts it great. If it doesnt check scart lead has all pins wired & not only A few.
your sky box should have 2 scarts ;input and tv.I have one so as can watch sky upstairs and on projector screen.
reciever sender is in av on tv upstairs sender downstairs is in scart next to tv scart on skybox scart lead in tv scart connected to av on tv.some senders need to be turned on.when you plug in adapter and led is on doesnt necessarily mean sender is on .is this a new sender with instructions youve bought
