You just have to treat it as you would like adding to it so you would need a dish for the lead of the sky box to be plugged in to and a scart lead to go straight to your telly to the sky box I hope this has been of some help has you would need a sky box to gt the sky channels I wish you good luck Karl

The sky box is on and the tv.....tv is on correct channel but no picture or sound.....i have tryed rebooting the sky box and turning tv on and off


Check all of the cable between the tv and the box are correctly inserted by removing and refitting them. If you're using scart leads look at the pins in the plugs: if any are missing or bent replace the lead entirely. If that fails look at your dish to ensure that it still seems OK: they can get knocked off-aim by window cleaners for example and I've even known the LNB to be stolen (the box of electronics on the front of the dish).

If that doesn't work then you need to phone Sky for further troubleshooting.

Sky is saying there is no signal. Turn box off and on again. I have done this but still get no signal. I have freeview only channels on my sky box


Hi,

Firstly, you don't get Freeview through your Sky box. If you are watching Freeview channels then it's from an aerial connection. If you are getting a 'No signal' message on your TV, the first things to check are:

1. Check that you have selected the correct input source on your TV. If you are using a 'co-ax' connection (standard aerial cable) you will have to select this manually from the remote. If you are using a SCART connection, all you need to do is turn the Sky box off and back on - but you've done this already.
2. Check the connection from your Sky box to your TV - disconnect it, check that the cable and connectors aren't damaged then re-connect it.
3. Check the cable between the dish and the Sky box. Unplug this from the Sky box and reconnect it.
4. Check that your viewing card is correctly inserted. This is unlikely to be the problem as it doesn't usually result in a 'no signal' message, but remove it and re-insert it anyway.

Finally, it's very windy tonight and this can affect the Sky signal if your Sky dish isn't properly secured. It's possible that your dish has been moved by the wind and is no longer aligned with the satellite. If none of the above work, you should inspect the dish as soon as conditions are safe enough to do so. If you can move it by hand, it can probably be moved by the wind.

Try these tests and post back and I will try to assist further if the problem has not been resolved.

Regards,
BElectric

When i plug my new tv into the sky box via a scart, the tv picture is distorted and a major buzzing noise is coming from the tv. sky have checked and said the box is fine. when u connect to another tv it...


Have you tried another scart lead? Also tried all of the tv scart sockets? Don't try and cure this by using an expensive upmarket scart lead, you'll just be wasting your money. The cheapest leads work just as well when the function correctly.

You could also try reversing your current lead by swapping the tv end to the Sky box and vice-versa, as there are many leads which cause feedback issues, and also a lot of "cut" leads (designed to prevent feedback looping) which must be fitted the correct way around. A "cut" lead is one where the wire to pin 19 at the tv end and to pin 20 at the video/Sky box end has been cut.

Note that scart leads MUST be fitted with the tv and Sky box switched off to avoid damage. Most people (including professional installers) regularly ignore this precaution though.

If all else fails then take the tv back and exchange it under the Sale of Goods Act; it's certainly not uncommon for new tv's to have faulty scart sockets.

If I've solved your problem then please take a moment to rate my answer. If not, then please report back with the make and model of TV and I'll try a more specific answer.

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.

HOW TO CONNECT SAMSUNG 40 LCD TV TO SAMSUNG SURROUND TZ215 THRUGH SKY + HD BOX.


you will need the following = HDMI LEAD
Optical Audio Lead
Red and White phono Lead

Sky HD Box > connect to Tv via HDMI Lead.

Sky HD box > Connect the optical Audio, and the Phono Leads To your Surrounds sound.

The reason I am wanting you to connect the phono's as well as the optical audio out. Not all programs are transmitted with Dolby D so you will need these for normal sound to come through your surround sound.

One last thing I would like you to check is the sound settings on your Hd box.

OLD PROGRAM GUIDE:
On your sky remote. Press SERVICES, 4, 2, then ensure that Dolby D is displayed if not highlight and using the blue button change this to Dolby D. then arrow down to save.

NEW PROGRAM GUIDE:
On your sky remote. Press SERVICES, 0, Arrow along to SOUND then arrow down and change this to DOLBY D Then press the GREEN button.

Hope this Helps you out. IF so please leave a thumbs up
