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.

Just bought a Logik tv with integrated Freeview. I have sky+ and the TV plays from the Sky receiver but blocks all non freeview channels, for which I subscribe, how do I get the TV to play ALL the sky...

It sounds like you've just got the TV on the Freeview.

I presume your Sky+ is connected via a Scart Lead to an AUX Scart Input on the rear of the TV.

You need to change the TV from Freeview to the AUX Input, should be a button marked AUX.

If you can't figure out how to do it then please advise the Model of the TV and I'll try and talk you through it.

I have an LG TV with an LG HOME CINEMA SYSTEM problem is: watch dvd/blue ray - video fine sound fine (through speakers) watch tv / sky -- video fine sound None throughspeakers on...

There are two things that I can suggest.
1-Test your optical cables to make sure they a good on a known working source because they are very fragile and break very easily.
2-Try to eliminate the use of optical output from tv to receiver. There may be a problem from the HDMI to optical conversion at the tv. Instead, try running the audio directly from the source to the receiver, and let the tv deal with video input only.
Hope this helps,
Good Luck.

When i plug my new tv into the sky box via a scart, the tv picture is distorted and a major buzzing noise is coming from the tv. sky have checked and said the box is fine. when u connect to another tv it...

Have you tried another scart lead? Also tried all of the tv scart sockets? Don't try and cure this by using an expensive upmarket scart lead, you'll just be wasting your money. The cheapest leads work just as well when the function correctly.

You could also try reversing your current lead by swapping the tv end to the Sky box and vice-versa, as there are many leads which cause feedback issues, and also a lot of "cut" leads (designed to prevent feedback looping) which must be fitted the correct way around. A "cut" lead is one where the wire to pin 19 at the tv end and to pin 20 at the video/Sky box end has been cut.

Note that scart leads MUST be fitted with the tv and Sky box switched off to avoid damage. Most people (including professional installers) regularly ignore this precaution though.

If all else fails then take the tv back and exchange it under the Sale of Goods Act; it's certainly not uncommon for new tv's to have faulty scart sockets.

If I've solved your problem then please take a moment to rate my answer. If not, then please report back with the make and model of TV and I'll try a more specific answer.

Just connected sky via hdmi through denon 3310 and no sound is coming through the tv. Also do i need to have amp on to view sky via hdmi?

ensure that HDMI is selected in your sky settings.

you would not need an amp at all just to view sky, only if you were routing sound to say a surround system.

Are you only getting no sound from the tv? or are you getting sound via the amp but not from the tv?

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

Sky+ DVD Recorder Tuning

You need to connect up the Sky+ to your recorder via scart. This will eliminate poor picture quality. The Sky box will be on ext1 on your recorder or something like that
