Just bought a Panasonic TX-P42G10B 42in 600Hz Full HD with freesat HD built in. We currently have Sky +, but i was unwilling to pay the extra a month for the sky HD service. Therefore this tv seemed fine....

Use a good quality scart leads for starters.
connect oon end to tv and the other labeled tv on sky box. The other is labeled vcr. connect another lead from vcr or dvd to that connection.
If you have a hd dvd player or Bluray, then buy a HDMI lead and connect straight to one of the HDMI inputs on the tv. I know this is late but i hope it still helps you and anybody else who may read this.

Samsung LE32R51BD HDMI connection not working. Have connected the sky+HD box to another HD tele using the lead and it works ok but not with the Samsung

Have had the same fault with mine. Out of warranty so took back off and HDMI socket fell out of the PCB!!!!! Never had a plug in it. Too small to solder back in. Needs a new signals board. Waiting for Samsung to come back with a price.

I am about to receive an LG32LF4700 Freesat/HD TV If I disconnect the SKY Box and connect the TV direct to the Dish cable will I receive Freesat HD channels. Also can I connect an extra bedroom TV into the...

Yes you can split the signal out from the back of the Freesat/HD (not the TV)to the second TV.
Look what outputs are on the Freesat box - the RF (standard cable) output should go to the 2nd TV (TV set to CH3) and the a/v cables,HDMI or DVI cable should go to the new TV - Note:To receive HD the output from the Freesat should be either HDMI,DVI or Composite output (RGB video jacks) with red White for audio. If you have HDMI this is best - it also provides audio.

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.

hello, if your dvd player is'nt a hd dvd player it'nt not able to be converted into a hd you'll have to buy a hd dvd player,and for your sky plus you'll have to call your program supplier for the hd box,and yes the 4500 is the same as the 4710 its the same t.v. all even newer t.v.'s still offer the "s" video option for people who still want to use a old vcr with there newer t.v. for example thay can still use "s" video.

LE40R74BDX HDMI input stopped working

I work for sky as an engineer (not a subby)

HDCP is the encryption that is sent down when a program is transmitted. I have had this several times over the years and have found out that you need go to the manufactors web site or call them to update your telly this will sort out this problem.
I would do this sooner then later... reason I am telly you this is sky have take the Component inputs off all the sky boxes now.... The box you have is a THOMSON (have a look.... make you smile)lol this was due to people connecting there sky HD box to there pc via Component and using programs like Copy+ and extract + to copy the content.

If your box breaks down. then you are snookered if you telly is not going to accept the skyHD through a HDMI connection.

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
