HOW to view sky tv on ..

Connect skybox using scartlead, or if you have HD use HDMI lead connection..
Select connection by using the AV (alternate video input) on your remote control--this will switch from freeview to sky.
Happy viewing.

I need to re tune my samsung tv but have no remote any ideas?

you can always use the button on your Tv itself.

ie menu = Menu
Channel up/down = take you up and down
volume = goes left and right.

follow these steps

channel down button to CHANNEL
press the volume button along
channel down button to AUTO STORE
press the volume button to Start the scan.

right now you have your telly tuned in. What you could do it get an old sky remote off a friend/ neighbour. or buy from argos etc ( a lot cheaper then getting a replacement samsung one)

press the following buttons on the sky remote to program it to work with your samsung tv.


try the volume if this works press SELECT to save this code if it doesnt press Tv then try the volume again. repeat this step until the volume works your telly. once it doest dont forget to press the SELECT button to save.

Now you will be able to change your volume use the number keys. if you also press the HELP button on the sky remote this will also change your AV / SOURCE I hope this post helps you out. When it does please leave a thumbs up for me Please

Lost ITV channels and C4

I think you need to get Sky because it will give you 100% coverage of all terrestrial channels. You may need to retune the television otherwise just get sky

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

Probem getting sky to work with a new TV

An HD TV connects in the same way as a standard TV.

Connect a scart lead from the TV scart of the Sky box to the TV.

When you switch on the Sky box it should automatically switch the TV to the correct external input.
