Channel no showing on tv

Since my boys have had their x box on the tv there is a large green "9 AV1 and a symbol showing underneath (like a square with an arrow pointing into it) in green taking up a lot of space on the left hand side - how do I get rid of it?

    I didnt know what a PIP was so I thought I would press every single button on the remote, I was guessing thats possibly all the boys did anyway. There was a button with i and a + on it and it did the trick! Whats a PIP then?!



    Cheers

    Great site I'm a right techophobe!

Hi,

Without knowing the brand and model of the TV, I can only venture that somehow the PIP feature has been engaged. Disable the PIP (using the remote).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again xxjanexx,

    Thank you for your postback and additional information.

    PIP stands for Picture in Picture that is you have the standard display then a smaller display superimposed on the larger one. This could be another channel while mainly watching another channel or could be your video/DVD/game input while watching regular TV programs. Additionally, the smaller display/box could just be basic information.

    Sorry but without knowing your TV's specific brand and model, I would not even venture a guess on the i and a +.

    Am glad that your concern is gone.

AV1 input question


The TV probably defaults to the RF channels. If it is an analogue only tuner model then it will go to the last used/programmed RF channel.

How do I tune a tv to sky channel


Turn on sky box, select a menu so you have a steady output.
Easy way is a scart lead (no tuning required) choose "av1" or whatever your plugged in to.
If just using ariel lead, pick a channel on tv for example no 6 and tune that to frequency 68.
If your tv does'nt use these numbers then scan until it comes through

Having problems gettin sky channels through archos i get to setting infrared settings and can not get code.dont know wether to connect dvr t the tv or the sky box


Remove the DVR station from the box, and attach the DVR adapter plate (found in the
DEVICE box); it is correctly attached when it clicks on.
-Take the Black Audio/video Marked "output" cable, and insert the connections into the corresponding coloured sockets, yellow>yellow, green> green etc. Make sure they are
inserted into the TOP row on the back of the DVR Station "Marked Out". The remaining
black connector should be plugged into the SW socket, which can be found underneath
the orange socket on the back of the DVR station. (If after setting up your ARCHOS the
picture is very green remove the black cable from the SW socket)
-Plug the SCART connector into the SCART socket on your TV set. These are usually
marked AV1, AV2, or Ext 1, Ext 2, L1, L2, Line in 1, Line in 2, Aux 1, Aux 2, make sure you
select the corresponding channel above (ie AV1 AV2 etc) on your TV set when you turn on
the TV.
-Attach the UK plug adapter to the Mains charger, and plug the charger into the DC-In
socket on the back right of the DVR station. Turn the mains on at the socket.
-Insert the powered off ARCHOS unit onto the DVR station, the unit will now power on,
and ask if you want to 'Switch to TV out', select 'Okay'. The 'TV output configuration' set
up will load up. Select 'Okay'.
-TV connection: When your DEVICE is connected to the optional DVR Station you need to
select the type of video output (Composite, S-video, component, RGB, HDMI etc), based
on how you have connected the DVR Station to your TV and what possibilities your TV will
allow. For the cables supplied and the instructions aboce you will need to select either
RGB or Composite. Use the arrows to go through the options and select either RGB or
Composite.
-TV Standard: this should be set to PAL (Europe). Select 'Next'.
-Now you need to test the settings, select 'Okay', the ARCHOS home screen should now
be visible on your TV set. If you have nothing showing on your TV, scroll through the
AV/Ext channels, the channel will correspond to the AV/Ext socket you connected the
cable to on your TV set. Use the ARCHOS remote to select 'Okay'; you have now set up
the output connection settings for your DVR station.
-You may need to adjust your output from the ARCHOS to match your TV, from the "TV
Format" options. Use the arrows on the ARCHOS remote to select the format of your TV
screen, so the ARCHOS unit outputs the correct picture size (ie 4:3 / 16:9 etc). Use the
arrows on the remote to select 'Next'.

Connect the supplied anttena on the reciever. Once you have done that, then:

1. dtv symbol device
2. press and hold MUTE & SELECT for two blinks
3. enter 9 6 1
4. press CH UP
5. enter the last 6 digits of the Receiver ID #, found on a sticker in the access card compartment
6. press SELECT

Now the receiver will accept both IR and RF, but the directv device on the RC32RF remote will only emit RF signals. The av1, av2, and tv are all still IR only.
