Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

I wonder if you could please help me with a problem. I have just had Sky installed at my home and am trying to tune my TV into the signal on my Humax LGB22DZT TV. It just will not pick up the Sky signal. I have connected the RF cable to another TV and there is no problems with the other TV, just the Humax. Can you please help? Thanks, Michael.

If you have been given one of the newer units, use hdmi only - it carries audio and video just like scart but is miles better. single cable connection direct from sky to tv and best way you'll to get signal to it easily.
Don't buy Monster cables from Comet etc, SO over-priced, should be about £8.00 for a 1M cable, half decent quality.

I would advise connecting your sky box to the TV with a scart cable or better still a HDMI cable & not the RF cable. The reasons for this sre
1.. You should get a much better quality of picture from Sky
2.. You will not need to tune in the TV just go to the AV or HDMI input source to obtain the sky channels.

I don't have an aerial, I have satellite. I hav gone through the tuning several times and called the help desk: no joy. I have connected: Scart Sky box-TV....HDMI sky box-TV


The sky box is the box you use to watch TV The flat panel is just the monitor to receive the picture from the sky box you cannot tune the TV to receive the sky EPG signal Use the HDMI input in the TV menu that the sky box is attached to

What does code 576p indicate?


576p means 576 lines, progressive scan. 576 is number of visible lines on the UK system (and other nominally 625 line countries). The normal transmission system for these countries is 576i (interlaced scan), so I suspect that you are only seeing the 576p indication because there are no channels, and your TV is interpreting this as progressive scan.

The reason for no channels may be a poor signal from the aerial, or that the device (Humax or TV) has not been tuned. If you have power-saving enabled on the Humax, it will not pass on the aerial signal to the TV when the Humax is in standby. If this is the case, either turn power-saving off, or use a splitter to feed the aerial separately to the TV and Humax.

I ws using my humax to watch a programme, when the picture froze.


It can sometimes happen if the signal level drops & the TV digital decoder cannot pick up the strength of the signal when the transmission is back to normal. Switching on & off again resets the processing again. This is a similar effect that can happen with cable or sky transmissions also, it acts the smae way as sometimes having to re-boot your PC if that should crash. It is not necessarily a fault with the TV.

No signal on teristeral but able to watch tv through sky


This could be down to several things so sorry if this is long winded but really needed more info from yourself...

Sky gets its signal from the dish mounted on your exterior wall.

your terrestrial signal comes from your terrestrial aerial be it external or internal.

If you do have an aerial cable coming into your property and it is connect to your television. Go into your TV MENU and set it away on Auto Tune if this does not come up with any channels. Try auto tune on your built in Digital tv ie DTV if it has this option...

If neither of these work then you need a new aerial or it needs to be re-aligned.
Personnally I would not bother with a Terrestrial Aerial You already have Sky installed so this will be fine for when the Whole of the UK goes digital. Dont be fobbed off by people telly you that you need a Digital aerial as your sky dish is already Digial anyway.

Hope this Helps

Tuning to pick up sky feed


Sounds like from discription the sky feed is set up for analog channel 6. With my TV-HVR-1600 card, there is an option in the wintv application when you click the menu button in the application that says channel suite. If you select this option, you should find and option for analog source. Select analog source in this screen and you should be able to manually add channel 6 in the box at the top of the analog souce screen. Also if you have the sky feed connected and you you click the scan button on this screen, it should detect automatically is the sky feed is on.

Unable to Tune TV to Sky + RF output


Hi.

The problem is that the modulator output frequency of your sky box is exactly the same as for example chanel 5 on your terestrial aerial.
You need to change this number to a different one thats clear of local terestrial transmissions


1) Select the Services button on your Sky or Sky+ remote control.

2) Type in 401 [select] on your key pad and you will get to the installer menu. You cant gain access to this via the drop down menu as it is designed for the Sky Engineer to use.

3)
Select Option 4 to configure the RF outlets on your Sky Digibox.

4) The option RF Chanel Number change this number from example 35 to 60 .
You may need to do this using other numbers 26 34 55 etc
Every time you alter the number store it then try & tune TV to sky.
Any other sets in the house connected by RF leads will require retuning for sky.
Save new settings and you should find that your RF outlet to TV works fine.
