This is an HD ready TV and can definitely be used with Sky HD, but ONLY if the Sky box is connected to the TV with an HDMI cable. It will not work if connected with a scart cable.

So you need 2 things. Firstly, you need to buy an HDMI cable (see picture) if you haven't already got one. Secondly you need to locate the HDMI sockets on your TV and Sky box. The sockets will have the HDMI logo (see picture) next to them.

Please rate my solution if you find this helpful. Thanks.could you please tell me if my LC-32GA5E tv can - 330cd4e.jpg

    You will probably need to buy the HDMI lead. They are not usually supplied free with HD televisions. If you bought your Sky HD box new from Sky, one would have been supplied and your HD setup installed correctly. You can get an HDMI from many places - try Amazon or any local electrical / computer store.

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

Bravia & Sky+HD, aspect problem


There is nothing wrong with you Sony Bravia TV and it suppport all HD and SD formats.

Are you viewing the HD version of the channel when it is showing a standard defination show. e.g SKY1 HD instead of SKY1.

This means that regular standard defination shows are in a 4:3 ratio and does not fill the whole screen. In order to view these type of shows you will need to tune to regular channel instead of the HD version.

You can check if a show is brocast in HD by going into the tv guide and checking for the HD symbol in the programme symposis.

Is it hd


Strictly speaking to be HD Ready a TV must fullfill 2 things:

1. Have a Screen Resolution of at least 1024 x 768.
2. Have at least 1 HDMI Socket.

Your TV has neither of these, so it is NOT HD Ready, however, it will still be more than capable of showing SKY HD, and it will still look very nice indeed.

I would need a list of the connections on the rear of the TV to tell you which cable to buy, but:

If it has DVI, then a simple HDMI to DVI cable will do for the video.

If it has component, i.e Yb, Yr etc then you will need a more expensive HDMI - Component Video cable.

But otherwise, yes, SKY HD will work fine.

I hope this helps.

Connecting laptop to TV


Depending on the brand of laptop, there should be a hotkey (Key combination) that you press to activate a presentation mode.
On my Dell it's Fn (Function) + F8.

Also, you have to have your TV set to the Video or AUX mode that the s-video cable is hooked up to. (Like AUX1/Aux2, or Video1/Video 2) Your best bet is to cycle through them slowly once you activate the presentation mode on your computer, or identify it by the markings near it on the back of the TV.

Sometimes I have to hit the hotkey a few times until my computer and TV 'like' each other.

If this doesn't help, comment on the solution post and we can try more ideas. :)

Hope this helps!

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.
