Hi,

Not sure what you mean by "optical connection" but you need to connect your SkyHD box to your TV using both HDMI and SCART cables. Your Sky HD box will then send the signal via the HDMI cable for the HD channels and the SCART cable for the SD channels.

Hope this helps

    Sorry, presumed the LG unit was your TV. Give me a 5-10 minutes to think about it and I'll post back . . .

    OK . . . there is nothing wrong with the way your devices are connected as far as I can tell, so I had a quick read of your manual and I came across 2 things which seem relevant. Firstly, have you tried pressing the "OPTICAL" button on your remote after you change from HD to SD channel? Secondly, there seems to be an issue with sound output from the HT805 as defined in the manual . . .

    "If a connected HDMI device does not accept the audio output of the unit, the HDMI device’s audio sound may be distorted or may not be output.

    • When you connect a HDMI or DVI compatible device make sure of the following:
    - Try switching off the HDMI/DVI input device and this unit. Next, switch on the HDMI/DVI
    input device first and leave it for around 30 seconds, then switch on this unit allowing it
    time to connect to input device.


    It seems switching off and resetting is the correct thing to do. I will read some more and if anything else seems relevant, I'll post back shortly. BElectric

    Sorry, just noticed your message. Glad it's sorted even though it's a bit irritating having to wait a minute. LG do state that it may be necessary to switch off and allow the unit to reset.. Have a good night.

I have a sky+ hd box connected to an lg 42LH300 tv through hdmi and an LG HT805SH home cinema through optical cable. Whenever i turn sky over i lose sound and have to turn cinema on/off to sound returns ...


One of the way to connect the whole system is using only HDMI cable version 1.3a. There is audio return channel built into the cable.So you do not have to connect the optic cable.
Sky box to TV using HDMI
LG HT805 to TV using HDMI. Even the Sky box audio will come back to the LG-HT through the audio return path.

Sky hd remote code needed please


Sky High Definition SkyHD uses a new design of Slim line remote control. The Default TV code pre-programmed into the RCU is now for Phillips and is (0)065. The SkyHD RCU is programmed in the usual manner using either the instructions in the Digital Installation Manual or via the Sky Customer Service option in the Interactive on-screen menu.
The SkyHD RCU can also be programmed to operate Sky+ boxes as well as SkyHD:
Press the TV button.
Press and hold SELECT and i together until the LED flashes twice.
Press the number button 1 and then press SELECT.
(Obviously you can't have a SkyHD and a Sky+ Digibox both in the same room).
Note: To re-programme the RCU for Sky HD box operation only, repeat the above process pressing the 2 button in step three.
Keep pressing HELP and waiting a few seconds until you find the correct command that activates the AV source you require then press SELECT.
The HELP button will now directly activate the chosen AV source instead of toggling through the alternative options to reach it.
There are 18 AV source commands to be tried before the RCU blinks 3 times to indicate it is out of options.
The Sky Guide buttons (SKY, tv guide, box office, services & interactive) can now be directed to use the same AV source as the newly programmed HELP button.
Press SELECT and GREEN until LED flashes twice.
Press HELP then SELECT and the LED will flash Twice.
The Sky Guide buttons will now instruct the TV to switch to the desired AV source and the RCU will be in Sky Mode.

You can also use a Sky+ remote to control a SkyHD digibox.

Connect an optical lead from the sky hd box to the Samsung Blue Ray.

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

How do i connect to sky hd and sony kdl 40w 4710 and dav-is10 i have hdmi from skyhd to tv and hdmi from home cinema to tv what else is required as i cant get surround sound from tv


you need a Optical audio cable, run this from the back of your Sky HD box to the Surround sound. Not all Broadcast are transmitted in DD so press your i button on the sky remote and you will see this on the yellow bar above the program information if it is..

Might be worth running a set of White and Red audio cable from the HD box to the Surround sound as well that way you can just mute your telly and have the lot coming through the surround sound system.

Hope this clears things up for you

LE40R74BDX HDMI input stopped working


I work for sky as an engineer (not a subby)

HDCP is the encryption that is sent down when a program is transmitted. I have had this several times over the years and have found out that you need go to the manufactors web site or call them to update your telly this will sort out this problem.
I would do this sooner then later... reason I am telly you this is sky have take the Component inputs off all the sky boxes now.... The box you have is a THOMSON (have a look.... make you smile)lol this was due to people connecting there sky HD box to there pc via Component and using programs like Copy+ and extract + to copy the content.

If your box breaks down. then you are snookered if you telly is not going to accept the skyHD through a HDMI connection.

Hope this helps

Ive just moved to a house with sky all ready and have not got a clue how to set the thing up. I have a 50in PS-50Q96HD Samsung HDTV Plasma. I have the sky cable and the normal tv cable, what goes were...


first of all you would need to have a Sky HD set top box.

The cables coming into the wall.. you said one was the terrestrial aerial and the other was a sky cable. In order for you to benefit from Sky HD you would need twin cable or two single cable running from your sky dish.(allows you to record a program and watch another etc.

summary:
skyHD box
two feeds coming from your dish,
there is only one place these can go as they are screw on ie F connectors. so they would screw onto input 1 and 2 on the back of the Hd box.
Run a HDMI cable from the back of the sky box from the HDMI port to one of the HDMI ports on the back of your telly. last but not least you would need to get a power cable (kettle plug) to power the thing.

In regards to your terrestrial aerial you can plug this directly into your telly or via your aerial in port on the back of the skyHD box. then you would have to run an aerial cable from the RF out 1 or 2 to the back of your telly this would allow you to record two things on your Sky HD box then switch to your built in freeview that your telly has.

Hope this has answered your questions

Watching another channel while recording


Hi there! Sorry but you can't unless you have My Sky/HD recorder. The sky decoder is simply a one channel watch decoder. You can only record a sky channel and watch the channels normally provided via your VHF and UHF aerials connected to the decoder or vice versa.
My Sky fixes that although you cannot record to a dvd disc on this thing and the privilege comes at a price of course!

Connecting the LE46A556P LCD TV to the HTZ310R Home Cinema System


You need to be connecting the TV and the Sky Plus to the HT box via optical (toslink) for full surround sound. As you only have one optical port on the HT, I would suggest buying a Optical selector such as this one. I would also suggest looking on avforums more more help. I use it for most of my questions if ever i need any help.

Hope this helps!

Hdmi conflictng with optical


Use the component. If your tv is running correctly it should not lose quality through the component system. HDMI is simply a High Def Multiple Interface, meaning that it combines the Visual with the Audio signal in the same cable. Refer to your documentation on your sattelite box to see if there is a solution. But remember that the HDMI may be carrying what the actual broadcast sound is as not many if any channels are transmitted in 5.1 dts.
