The hdmi cable would not be compatible with your old style TV, if the Virgin box has a scart socket then that is your best option!

SOURCE: connect tv to cable box with hdmi lead

You will need an HDMI to DVI cable which are available in the shops, even ASDA has one but I don't know how good it is. Or you can buy an adapter that will plug into one of the ends of the HDMI cable and then plug into the DVI socket at the back of the TV. The DVI input is video only so you will need audio leads for sound. These will connect from the output of your source, say, blue ray or sky HD (Left and right audio sockets ) to the audio L/R at the back left of the TV (on the block next to the three component video connections and s-video connections)

Ive got a panasonic model 32pf7520d/10 ive also vigin but i cant watch programs in high definition what cable do i need to connect the tv to the virgin box


If you don't have one already, you will need to get a hidef box from your cable provider( make sure it comes with an HDMI port) Once you have that, then you connect an HDMI cable from the HDMI port on the cable box to any HDMI input on the tv

I have a JVC RM-C60 TV. I'm trying to tune it in to my Virgin Media HD box using a standard SCART lead but having no joy. It's completely failing to find the cable channel (or any other for that matter)....


Tuning of the TV not required when using scart lead, just select external input that the scartis connected to, ie AV1,AV2 (EXT1,EXT2) etc. The problem is possibly to do with the Virgin box, it may be set to HDMI out in which case it will not output anything via the scart lead, you would need to connect via an HDMI lead (small socket on the rear of the unit looks a little like a USB socket). Problem is if your TV is a CRT television its unlikely to have this socket. Your Virgin box can be reset to output via the scart but you would need to contact Virgin for this process.

I had the same problem and after buying loads of different cables came to the conclusion that the HDMI input on the TV was at fault. Bit of a sledgehammer to crack a nut but I upgraded my home cinema amp to one that had HDMI in/out and now I put the sound through that and use the TV as a panel with volume turned to zero.

Cant tune to hd from virgin box


You should not have to tune into HD, you should be connected via a HDMI connector from the Virgin box to theTV, which means you only need to select the HDMI input source & then select your channels fron the Virgin box.

I want to connect a Virgin HD box to my Panasonic TH-42PV500B TV currently connected to a Panasoniv DVD recorder On Scart AV1. How do I switch between Virgin and existing equipment which I would like to...


what you need to do is obtain an HDMI cable for your Virgin HD box. Leave the rest on scart (you can probably even add a another box now that you've freed up one port). Basically just press the button on your TV remote, saying 'Source' and you can flick through all your scart soxkets and HDMI ports. Simples.
