Samsung LE R88 BD LCD TV / digibox problem

I have a weird problem with my Samsung LE R88 BD LCD TV and my sky digibox. At power up my sky remote will not operate my digibox for approx 5-10 minutes (no definate time). However during this period if I switch the tv in standby the sky remote will operate(flashing red light on digibox). As soon as I bring the tv out of standby no sky operation again. For no apparent reason after the above time all will work normally. Very strange, seems to me like some kind of interference between the two. Any ideas please. Very frustrating!!!!.

Hiya I have the same issue, I thought it was my remote - I got BT Vision and 3 boxes later proved it was the TV.  I got another Ferguson Top Up TV Box this too has the same issue, cannot change channels it seems not to send signal to box but 60 percent of the time its ok.  I rang samsung who denied any issue at first then said that the TV sends out an infra red signal and this must be causing the conflict.  I have now blocked out the sensor on the TV and all is ok, but looking for a better solution!

Hi.

Its a long shot but try this,
It can cause problems when you switch set to & from stand bye.

Check that you are viewing a digital TV channel
Enter the menu and navigate to:
Setup > System > Software Upgrade > Standby Mode upgrade
Change the setting to Off.

I cant gteee that this will sort your problem out so post here if it doesnt & I will check samsung data base.

Sky box green light on permanent


Sounds as if the software is corrupt. Try a forced software update...

1) Switch the digibox off at the mains power, so no lights are displayed on the unit
2) Press and hold the BACK UP button on the digibox (not the remote control)
3) Whilst holding, switch the digibox back on at the mains power so the red standby light is displayed
4) Wait approximate. 10-20 seconds for the remaining 3 lights to display, at which point you can release the BACK UP button
5) Allow the digibox to download the latest software, which can take 10 minutes before returning to standby
6) Leave 60 seconds then power up as usual

A software update/refresh will leave your recordings intact. You won't lose anything.

If this doesn't solve your problem, then the next step is more drastic. It's a Full System Reset and Planner Rebuild. Be advised though: Your recordings are at risk!

1) Switch your digibox on
2) In sequence, press on your remote 'SERVICES > 4 > 0 > 1 > SELECT' (this will access the hidden menu)
3) Select the relevant option (usually the bottom two) and follow the on-screen prompts (note that it's likely your digibox will reboot between processes)
Applies to Sky+HD Digiboxes only, running latest EPG
1) Press Services on your remote control. 'Options' in the Top Menu will be highlighted in orange.
2) Press the Right arrow once to highlight 'Settings' in the Top Menu.
3) Now press the Down arrow once to highlight the 'settings' tab in the Middle Menu.
4) Press 0, 0,1, Select on your remote in quick succession. The 'Setup' tab will then be highlighted within a hidden menu.
5) Select the relevant option and follow the on-screen prompts (note that its likely your digibox will reboot between processes)
Sky Digibox Planner Rebuild / Full System Reset (if stuck in standby)
Applies to Sky+ and Sky+HD Digiboxes only

Same as above, but applies if your digibox is stuck in standby and you cannot get to the hidden menu:

1) Switch the digibox off at the mains power, so no lights are displayed on the unit
2) Press and hold the 'right and left arrow' buttons on the digibox (not the remote control)
3) Whilst holding, switch the digibox back on at the mains power so the red standby light is displayed
4) Wait approximate. 30 seconds for the blue Sky+ ring of lights to display, at which point you can release the 'right and left arrow' buttons
5) Press 'SELECT' on the digibox (not the remote control)
6) Now the system will format the hard drive, the blue Sky+ ring of lights should spin backwards
7) Allow the system to format, which can take 10 minutes before returning to standby
8) Try to power up!

Stopped receiving sky on second tv - does my samsung need a reset


I install a lot of magic eyes etc.

You have checked that the magic eye lights up when it is connected directly into the sky box. So your eye is working correctly.

the next step I would take is with your sky remote in your main room. press SERVICES, 4, 0,1, SELECT go to RF settings and check the rf channel and make sure the power is on. Take a mental note of the channel number.

Now go into the room where the link is feeding. Turn on the TV and go to channel number 6 press your MENU button and then go down to setup. go across to manual install and then down to the channel number type in what you retrieved from you box ie rf channel and then type it in and STORE.

If you go into your main room and just put the normal tv guide on ie blue screen. then check that your getting the sky into the other room. IF you are then great it just needed tuning in. IF not I would remake the coax connectors. as there may be a bit of copper braid touching the centre core. once this is done your sky should be on all you need to do now is put the eye back on. Once you have done this the red light should appear on your magic eye. if not go to your main box and follow the first instructions I gave you and turn the power off on the RF and then save and then go back in and turn it back on and save.

Hope this sorts out your problem

Cheers

The code is 0081 and this is how you do it.


'4 digit' or 'Brand Set' method
1. Turn on your TV.

2. Press TV on your Sky remote control.

3. Hold down select and the red button together for about two seconds, until the red light on the Sky remote control blinks twice.

4. Press TV on your Sky remote control again.

5. Key in the Brand Set code for your brand of TV. The light on the Sky remote control blinks twice.
If the light blinks once only, re check the code for your TV and start again at step 1.

6. Press the on/off button (power-top right button on your Sky remote control).

If your TV switched off, press select . The light on the Sky remote control blinks twice.

If your TV did not switch off, press TV , then press the on/off button. Repeat this (press TV , then on/off) until your TV turns off, then press select.

If the light on your Sky remote control blinks three times, your Sky digibox has checked all the possible settings for the code you used. Check that you have the right 4 digit code and start again at step 1.

7. Press TV guide .
If you see the TV Guide screen, the remote control setup process is complete.

If you did not see the TV Guide, you must now set the TV Guide function as follows:

8. Press TV on your Sky remote control.

9. Hold down select and the green button together for about two seconds, until the red light on the Sky remote control blinks twice. The remote control setup process is complete.
