Source changes by itself when watching tv.


Check your buttons on the TV . Sounds like input or source button ( which ever one they call it ) is pushed in & stuck . Only way to make sure would be to disconnect it & see if it still changes inputs .

How do i find the hdmi source for virginmedia connection


When you change to the HDMI input for Virgin the TV will normally display the signal resolution and refresh rate for that source.

Some TVs will display the TV input name and source signal resolution and refresh rate when you press "i" (for info) on the TV remote.

Is that what you mean?

How do I connect my laptop to my led tv?


Is there a HMDI output on your Laptop or a VGA output. Some TV's have a DSUB input source that allows VGA depends on your laptop it could be HDMI if so TV should have an extraz HDMI input on the back and you change the source input on the TV to the HDMI 2 or HDMI 3 source depending on where you plugged in the P.C. . If HDMI you need to buy a HDMI cable.

This sounds like a basic setup, so correct me if I made any wrong assumptions.

You have 2 "output" devices: a Roku and a cable box. Both have HDMI outputs.

You have 1 "input" device (your TV) that has 2 HDMI inputs available.

So, you need one HDMI cable to connect your cable box to your TV. Remember what HDMI port it's connected to - the back of your TV probably says "HDMI 1" and "HDMI 2" or similar. That's the "input name" of your TV.

Connect your Roku to your TV with another HDMI cable.

Now turn on your TV and use the remote to change between the inputs. Most remotes have a button that says INPUT or SOURCE (or sometimes a dumb little icon with no writing). If you press that it should change inputs. Usually, each time you push the button will cycle to the next input, so sometimes you have to hit it a bunch of times until the on screen menu shows the input you want. Most TVs will automatically switch to the selected input after a few seconds, so you don't have to push any buttons on the remote to tell the TV to change inputs.

If "at the same time", you meant actually watching both Roku movies and your cable at the same time, you are talking about a TV feature usually called "picture in picture". That should be possible, but will depend very much on your TV. I'd suggest checking your TV manual, or calling the company's 1-800 number and asking them to talk you through it.

Sceptre TV unexpectedly changes input source away from HDMI

Isn't this just a simple hookup? What am I not doing?


You either need to change the input source. Currently the source is TV, depending on how you connected the DVD player to the TV, it should be composite (A/V), component video or HDMI. (S-video is also a possibility. Very few DVD players are connected on the RF (coax) input which might be channel 3 or 4 without having a converter between the DVD player and the TV.)

Look on your TV remote for a button marked Source or Input. You may also find this button on the TV. (On some TVs, this may also be accessed through the menus.)

How did you connect the TV and the DVD player? If your audio and video were connected via three RCA plugs (yellow, red, white) on each end, then use the composite video input. If you used cables with 3 RCA plugs for video (yellow, green, blue) and 2 for audio (red/white), then switch to the component input. If you used HDMI which carries audio and video in one cable (with rectangular ends), then use the HDMI input.

Some older TVs only have the Source/Input button on their original remote. Not all universal replacement remotes have this button, you may need a different remote. Those that do may require you to try additional codes for your TV manufacturer to enable the button. (The on./off buttons often will work with more of the codes for a brand.) The ones that can be programmed via a USB connection to a computer are most likely to support the function. Please add a comment with the type of TV for additional help with this.

I hope this helps.

PIP function does not work, the settings is greyed out also! I have a wii, PS3 and freesat :)


Hi nikkicollier,
PiP for your TV works between two different sources. This means between a component source and an HDMI source or between an HDMI source and another HDMI source. PiP also works with a PC connection, e.g. when using the TV as a computer display. PiP does not work between two component sources. The setting will be grayed out when you don't have a configuration that is supported, as the Samsung TV's are usually able to automatically detect which sources are plugged in and available.

I'm not exactly sure what sort of configuration you want your PiP to work in, but try one of the following configurations.
  • TV Cable (through VCR or other via Component input) with Satellite in PiP (via HDMI input)
  • PS3 (via HDMI Input) with Satellite in PiP (via Component Input)
  • Wii via HDMI Input) with PS3 in PiP (via HDMI Input)
You can usually find an HDMI cable for much cheaper at an electronics supplies shop, Radio Shack, or on eBay or Gumtree.
To change your PiP settings:
  1. Press the MENU button on the remote control. Select Picture and press Enter.
  2. Select PIP and press Enter.
  3. Press the enter button again, and press up or down to change the setting to On and press enter again.
    Note:
    If PIP is activated the screen will display in widescreen (16:9 aspect ratio.)
  4. Press the up or down buttons to select the Source then press the Enter button.
    Select the source of the sub-picture by pressing the up and down arrows and then pressing the Enter button.
    Note: The sub-picture can serve different source selections based on the what the main source is set to.
    Note:
    You may notice that the picture in the PIP window becomes slightly unnatural when you use the main screen to view a game or karaoke.
You can download the full PDF manual for your TV here (large download at 26MB.) Much of the PIP information can be found on pages 13 and 14.
Good luck, I hope that helps.

Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. If the screen is Fuzzy it only means that your not on the right Input of the TV. Use the Remote of the tv look for Source, Input or HDMI button and change the input to HDMI.

Thanks for using Fixya.
