    I must clarify my tv is not a projection one but a flat LCD tv. Thanks

  • paisano Apr 30, 2008

    At this moment there is one scart cable connected from my tv to the V+Box(cable tv), another one from the V+ box to the DVD plaayer, another scart cable connected from dvd player to tv and the monster HDMI cable connected from de dvd player to the tv.

  • paisano Apr 30, 2008

    NO that isn't the problem. What's happened is the failure of my tv recognising the HDMI signal through either my V+Box (cable tv) which already has HDMI connection or the DVD recorder?player.

    since we aren't talking about a projector, do I need to be re-directed?

    Hi IrishDruid! Thanks very much for your advice. I have tried all the cable connections to no avail and will be very much obliged if oyou could suggest to me a qualified technician here in London,UK. Best regards, Jay

    Hi Pauldonp! thankyou so much for your suggestions which I followed to the letter but I'm afraid still no joy there. Could you possible suggest a contact here in London Uk. for a technitian to come and have a look my TV? Thanks again: Jay

    Special thanks to pauldonp for all his suggestions and the rest of the team who tried to help wit a solution to my problem. I did managed to find a freelance technician, known by a local bussines agent, and who agreed to come and have a look at my connections and after trying switching cables around managed to get the 'handhsake' between my tv and the virgen v+ box. The cable he used was the component one(the one with the white-red-white-red-green and blue)and then went to the settings of virgen v+box for the component and as soon as he press the buttom for these settings on the remote control of the virgen v+ box, he had only witin three seconds to find the connection called YUV on the remote control of my tv and pressed it..and eureka!!! the handshake was established and so was the HDMI settings of my tv to give us a superb HD quality picture!!. There is only one more thing and that is that my dvd player now seems to be at fault since we couldn't get it working, but that's another thing. Thank you again for all your good efforts.

    kind regards:Jay

Most likely a problem with the HDMI cable or the HDMI connector on the TV set.
Try using a different cable, if possible to rule out the HDMI cable fault. Next try the cable on another HDMI enabled TV (if possible). If it works there, it is most likely a problem with the connector plug on the TV itself, for which you may need to engage the services of a qualified technician.

Cheers!

Hi, The best thing to try is remove the leads one at a time then push them all back in again this usually resets in case of any static build up in the leads. Failing this then turn your virgin box off for 15 min i mean unplugged then switch back on it should then boot back up and solve your problem. Try the leads first though to rule them out.
I had this problem last week and turning virgin off at mains seems to solve the problem but off for 15 min or more ok. then get back to me

    Make sure to double check all cables it only takes it to be slightly out for you to lose signal after doing this then switch off virgin box at mains for about 15min. It could even be downtime in your area from virgin it should tell you of any problems on their website.

  • paul proctor May 03, 2008

    Ill have a look for you ok but as i live in birmingham uk then ill have to have a look online for you.
    The only problem is calling someone out will cost a fortune but the problem you have is they do need to come out and actually see whats happening.
    Try having a look through your local phone book im hoping its only soemthing simple and shouldnt cost to much to get repaired. Im thinking maybe the socket for the hdmi might have bad solder this causing you the problem this is easy to fix but depending on how long it takes this is where your going to pay the most, as you know they charge by the hour in uk so can get expensive if it takes to long.
    What ill do is have a look for you then post back any info i can ok but i think the cheapest option would be someone who's self employed as these tend to be alot cheaper than the bigger stores for repairs but its up to you ill get back to you shortly ok

  • paul proctor May 03, 2008

    so you say you have scart in cable going into tv makes sure this is in output on the cable box then into input on telly.
    If this is correct then try pressing the av button on the control 2 or 3 times and see if that gets the picture back for you. if you dont have av button then yours might be source. Now depending om the amount of inputs into the telly this will mean pressing the av button untill you can get the telly on the correct input to reciev the signal.

    Alsl the last time i had this problem it was the box itself so unplugging from mains for an hour solved the problem it just means waiting for your cable box to boot back up again ok.
    Let me know how you get on ok

  • paul proctor May 03, 2008

    Hi just noticed you go it running through the dvd aswell this will then need to be set to the right av channel i think their is only one on dvd player so on dvd remote press av then hopefully it should be working but let me know ok

  • paul proctor May 03, 2008

    Hi also you could try entering the setup on telly control and then go through the menu's and check the hdmi is turned on as they are set to off when sold due to alot of people not having other hd equipment, so this is also worth checking ok get back to me either way ok

I have a JVC HD-70FH97 hooked to my digital box, via HDMI cable, and connected to the TV HDMI input 1. I cant get my surround system to work - any ideas what im doing wrong?


Check your HDMI audio settings. It may be trying to send a signal that is incorrect. How is the wiring setup? cable box to stereo, then to Tv?

Why my jvc television hd61z456 not showing in high definition


What is the signal source that you are watching on your HD61Z456?
The problem you describe usually happens when you aren't using an HD source or have downgraded the signal by the composite input on your TV. (Composite cables only support 480i SD signals.)

You will only see 720p HD content from HD sources, if you use HD compatible inputs. Some OTA channels are also broadcast as only analog signals (usually the -2 and higher sub-channels). If you have cable or satellite, make sure that you have the HD programming and have tuned to the HD version of the channel.

The HDMI and component inputs both support HD signals.

I hope this helps. If you are watching an HD source and the problem persists, I recommend trying new video cables. Next, check if you are getting interference from your devices by using a cable with a Ferrite core. See http://www.monoprice.com/Category?c_id=102&cp_id=10240 for HDMI cables with Ferrite cores. The cores help block interference. If you have very long cable runs, check the behavior with shorter cables between the source and the TV.

I have an older 2004 or so philips hdtv projection tv with the built in tv stand. i want to connect my HD cable box but there are no hdmi ports. and i buy a wire with the VGA on one end and hdmi on the...


Get a component video cable (blue, green, red) and a separate RCA audio cable (white and red) if your cable box has a component video output and the TV has a component video input.

If your cable box doesn't have the component output, you will need a converter to go from the HDMI to component video. Something like this: http://www.hdtvsupply.com/hdmi-to-component.html . There are other converters available if your TV has some other inputs available.

A cable that has an HDMI M on one end and a VGA M on the other will not work. HDMI signals from the set top box are a digital signal. The VGA port on the TV is set to read an RGB analog signal. (Similarly a component to VGA cable would not work since the RGB and PbPrY are not compatible.)

I hope this helps.

I have a 2002 Mitsubishi Medallion TV. The only input for HD is DTV (no DVI or HDMI inputs). Is there a converter box from HDMI to DTV that will allow for 1080i resolution?


From looking at the back panel of the TV, the DTV input can be configured as a component video. The M-Link/DVI-HD port is also a DVI with HDCP port and maximum signal handled is 1080i. The M-Link should work with an HDMI to DVI cable or adapter. For this to work, the source must not be a computer or another device using the default computer video output (computers give RGB output). The DTV port would need an HDMI to Component video converter. See this page for some examples: http://www.hdtvsupply.com/hdtocoad.html . The first one in the list (for Netflix and Boxee among others) will give 1080i out if the source is set correctly.

Most DVI-HDMI cables are single link. I've seen some examples where DVI-I (single link) and DVI-D (dual link) cables are not interchangeable. If you have video problems, check your cable. An HDMI to DVI adapters will let you run an HDMI cable up to the TV and then converter at the TV as a separate connection.

I hope this helps.

Just bought a samsung ps50a557s3f 50" plasma tv and the picture isnt very good.Have only got normal sky at the moment and i was wondering what the best settings are


Hi Smudger

Not sure if you still have this issue, but i have just bought this TV & also use sky (not + or HD)...

I got myself a Monster Cable Home Theatre surge protection unit from comet, basically it helps filter out all the background interference (picture & sound) & helps boost the signal sent to the TV..

I use a gold plated scart lead from the sky box to the TV & the picture is spot on.......i've not noticed any ghosting/pixeling etc & am well impressed...

The unit came with a top end HDMI cable & cost £135 (bit excessive you may think, but to buy the unit & cable seperate would cost £250!!) + the cable is a 'cable for life', so you can get a free updated cable as technology progresses :-)

My sky signal was always at half power (you can view this from the sky menu options) & now its almost full signal

My cable box doesnt recognise my hd tv when i hook up the 2 with an hdmi cable


Check operations manual for HDMI hook up. Some cab/box have to be switched from menu. If you can't use HDMI, use component cables instead, there's not much difference in picture quality. Possible bad HDMI cable
