    I might just use the sky box to watch the tv as it might be out of my depth,someone said that if you go into the service settings it can be repaired.I pressed the info,menu,mute and power buttons on the remote and had a look but don't understand any of it so left well alone.thank you for helping me.regards

Hi,

Sounds like the tuner is faulty or if its a seperate module the cables might have worked themselves loose, the video/mainboard is ok as its still able to produce an image.

If your up for it whip the back off and checks the cables as there is not much inside these models and a cable could have worked itself loose.

If everything looks fine inside, reset the Plug and Play settings and if that doesn't sort it out, then I would personally not worry about it as a seperate freeview and sky box is more than work well if not better.

Thanks

    Hi,



    Here you go....



    On your TV, change your source to TV (analogue), now press menu>find "Plug and Play" (Usually in the dish symbol) and select it and it runs through the setup and selct "Home" when prompted and not "Shop".



    It might be that your tuner is in correctly set, this process will sort that out as well, basically its like you have just switched it on for the first time, this was the first screen you would have seen back then.



    Good Luck

    Hi,



    Yes you can get it replaced, a word of caution though, if the tuner is the main fault (Personally I think it is) and the tuner is on its own board then you are looking at pounds, if the tuner is intergrated in to the video board then your looking at a fair bit.



    Personally the tuner is not great in this S series, seperate units are far better as their only specific job is to produce a filtered/upscaled digital signal and send it to you TV.



    Thanks

How do I tune sky tv into my new Toshiba television


If the TV set is on the same stand as the Sky box then you don't tune at all. Connect with either a HDMI cable or a SCART. Use the AV input on the TV.

If you mean you have a bedroom set, and Sky is piped around the house on RF, then that's something different.

Make sure your TV has an analogue tuner as well as the digital one used for Freeview. (check the remote for a TV/DTV button). Go in the the TV tuning menu, and do an Auto tune for both analogue and digital.

Sky problem


Freeview has nothing to do with satellite. FreeSAT is the one that uses a satellite dish for reception. FreeVIEW is received through the aerial.

Also, don't fall for the "digital aerial" scam. I install aerials as part of my business. I've been to homes with aerials 20 years old, covered in soot from the chimney and they still pick up Freeview perfectly well. Equally, I've been to homes where the owner has bought some gold plated multi-finned "digital high gain" monstrosity that has awful reception characteristics.

If your TV aerial is okay, then just plug it in to your Freeview receiving TV and do the tuning.

If you do want Freesat then you will need a satellite dish along with a Freesat receiver.

Can you watch the same sky channel on 2 tvs


Yes if you use the rf2 out on the box, cable it to the aerial input of the tv in the other room using uhf coax cable (aerial cable), and tune the tv in analogue mode (not freeview but the old analogue) to the sky box. It's usually on CH68 but if you do an autotune it should find it. Of course you will only be watching in SD not HD on the second set.

I have a panasonic viera 42 in plasma. It has a built in freeview receiver. It is in the bedroom and receives a signal through a booster from the main sky box. I can get free view channels on it but can't...


switch tv to analogue tv and auto tune on tuning menu making sure sky is on. It should find it around channel 69. If quality poor then change output frequency to a lower channel. You do this with sky menu and instruction book. Info is changing RF output in book, or google it.

I have a Pioneer DVR5100H which was set up to record Analogue programs - can I change the set up to accept digital programs. I have tried auto setup but it doesn't pick up any programs?


Hi,

You can't record digital programmes with this recorder unless it is connected to a digital tuner, e.g. a Freeview box or Sky digibox. This recorder has a built in analogue tuner which allows it to record analogue transmissions. Recorders which can record digital transmissions have a built-in digital tuner and usually have a DVB logo (actually looks more like DV3) on the front.

If you want to record digital programmes using this recorder, you need to connect it to a Freeview or Sky digibox, preferably with a scart cable. It is not sufficient to connect it to a TV with a digital tuner or built in Freeview as the player does NOT record directly from the TV, it must be connected directly to the transmission source. A basic stand-alone digital tuner (Freeview box) can be bought for as little as £10-15.

Regards,
BElectric

LG 42 inch Plasma Picture in Picture with SKY satellite service


PIP only works off two seperate signals, eg you cannot watch 2 sky channels at a time, you can watch sky tv and then your analogue channel using PIP or freeview, you can then swap which is to be viewed as a large picture and which is to be viewed as the smaller picture or half and half.

Will this tv work without a converter box when everything goes digital?


Hi.

If your set only has Analogue tuner you will need either Sky. Virgin, Freesat, or freeview box to be able to watch TV channels.
