Re: When watching dvd having showing or fade background

Yes it can be down to signal degradation especially via scart lead, make sure you use a decent scart if you buy an expensive one you can tell the difference. Run a cable from your sky digibox direct to your tv to see if the picture improves.

Samsung plasma stalling

Your TV is fine, the problem is with the signal from your satellite dish.

The signal from the satellite is digital, so when your receiver can't get a clear signal from the satellite, it shows the last good picture it had until the signal comes back.

Check to see if your dish is still properly aimed, with a clear view of the sky (no trees in the way)

Sound but no picture on TV

Try hooking your components up to the "AV1" and "AV2" jacks on the TV. I experienced this when hooking up my DVD and VCR (movies of my kids so kept it around). I hooked one to AV1 jacks and one to COMPONENT jacks and had the same result you're describing. Hope this helps.

You do not say which breed of sky you have.. old analogue, digital, sky + or sky HD if you have old analogue then you may have to connect through aerial connection, digital will have a scart socket to connect to your tv, sky + will have the same and finally the cream of the crop sky HD will have hdmi in addition to scarts.

The very least you need to do for a digital picture (not to be confused with hi-def which it isn't) is connect through scart lead then unless it auto-switches to scart input upon switching on sky use your tv remote to select the ext input 1, 2 or 3 etc (some remotes have a button called source for this some call it input etc) select each ext input until you find the one your sky is connected to

LG 42 inch Plasma Picture in Picture with SKY satellite service

PIP only works off two seperate signals, eg you cannot watch 2 sky channels at a time, you can watch sky tv and then your analogue channel using PIP or freeview, you can then swap which is to be viewed as a large picture and which is to be viewed as the smaller picture or half and half.
