Question about Hitachi 26LD6600 26 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

1 Answer

I am running a Sky + HD box through my television Hitachi 26LD6600 using a HD lead. I have balanced the sky remote to the tv, but whenever we turn to Sky/digital tv we have to manually change the tv channel using the tv remote to setting number 5. Can you advise please what i am doing wrong or is this tv model not programmed to change to sky automactically.

Hi, without a manual to hand, i don't know, but my Panasonic had the same problem, but I found somewhere in the settings, I could change it, it has something to do with AV and Digital TV and hdmi setup, give it a check.

I hope this helps to some degree, but give us a shout if you require more help.

Regards - Anthony

    Hi again, looking at the manual, I think it will only switch AV ( Scart ) inputs, not HDMI, I think I had this problem on my LG a couple of years ago. It's Annoying, but got used to it in the end.

Hi,

Always turn on your TV with the Sky box (or any other external device you want to use) turned OFF. When the TV is on, turn on the Sky box by pressing the "Sky" button at the top centre of the remote control. This will ensure that the TV recognises that there is an external input and it will automatically switch to the correct channel. It also ensures that your Sky remote control isn't in TV mode.

If you switch your TV to standby using the Sky remote after watching, the next time you use the Sky remote, it's still in TV mode. This is why your TV channels are jumping around.

Hope this helps.

Got sky installed today only thing getting on screen is "no video signal"


Sounds like the "channel" you are trying to watch on is not the one it's plugged into, or a faulty lead.
check the connection from the sky box to the tv, and select the av or hdmi channel that it is plugged into on the tv.
check the lead by swapping it for a known good one, for example from a dvd or ps3, but unplug from the dvd/ps3 and plug into the sky box(make sure that all the units are powered off when swapping leads) and try on the channel you normally watch/use the dvd/ps3.
If you suspect the sky is at fault, press menu on the sky remote and then flick through all the av/hdmi channels until you find the menu, then try to reinstall/retune the sky box.
If that don't work phone sky......................

How do i set up my plasma tv just to watch sky on the tv i was given a tv pioneer pdp-42mve1 and have got the power lead and a lead with a scart and 6 push in leads coluers are green blue blackyellow red...


Hello Paul,
all you need to do is plug the power in, put the scart lead into the back of your Pioneer tv, the other end of your scart into the bottom scart of your sky box named TV.

you will also need to connect the sky cable to the box to receive your signal. its a F type connector ie it screws on.

The other cable you have with the 6 push in coloured leads they are Component cable and the red and white ones are Audio cables. You will not need these cable unless your sky box is a HD box then i would suggest you get a HDMI cable instead of using component (less cables showing) dont be fooled into buying gold plated HDMI cables as they do not make any difference to the picture Quality as the back of the sky box is alley and so is the telly. So please dont waste your money on that type of cable.

Hope this Helps

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

Sky magic eye not working on hd


I work for Sky as an Engineer.

on your Sky HD remote:

service,

0 1 select

make sure the power is turned ON

now go to the room you can not change the sky channels over with.
you should notice on the magic eye itself should now have a Red led light on it now. you should now be able to change the channel over just remember to press the blue sky button on the remote at the top otherwise this will not operate the sky box.

If not unplug this magic eye and try this directly into RF out 2 to make sure that its not the magic eye that is at fault. If it is working correctly then the light will appear.

Hope this helps

HDMI conneection wont override tv picture


I am a sky engineer (not a subby)
the reason this does not come on straight away is because a Scart lead send power upto your telly when it is turned on. Telling the telly that this is what you want.
Unfortunately HDMI does not send power upto the telly. There are ways around this. ON Samsung, Panasonic and Lg tellys you can go into a secret menu and apply something called HOTEL MODE this allows you to change the av input so it would automatically come on your hdmi 1,2,3, etc

In your case follow my instructions below

go to the hdmi you are using for your Hd

on the sky remote
Press SELECT and GREEN until LED flashes twice.
Press HELP then SELECT and the LED will flash Twice. what this mean is when you press your Sky button, tv guide, services or interactive button to turn the sky on this will automatically change your av/source on your telly to the sky HD for you

You owe me a pint
Have a good one

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.
