Question about Televison & Video

3 Answers

I have a Panasonic tv model TH 42PZ80B; a Panasinic Blu-Ray dvd model DMP-BD50; a sky box (not as yet HD) and a Sony video SLV-SE 830G. I have a Satellite dish and a normal TV aerial. In the loft I have a splitter box that takes the tv signal to all rooms in the house. Sky programmes can be changed in the remote rooms via a mouse. In the room with the main TV I have two tv points - I assume one from the main aerial and one to the splitter box. I believe that I have connected the two scart sockets on the tv correctly and also the HDMI cable from the TV to the Blu-Ray. However I am having trouble with the tv aerial connections.Whilst I can obtain a picture on the main tv via both the areial and the sky box I not receiving any signal to the remote tvs. Can any one please advise me as to the aerial connections that I need to make. I have the input from the aerial and the output to the splitter box. I have one tv point on the tv -two on the video (one unmarked and one marked "tv") three on the Sky box ( excluding the cables from the dish) ( Aerial in; RF out1 and RF our 2) there are no aerial connections on the Blu-Ray. Any help would be appreciated.

    Everything was working fine when connected to a non HD Sony tv and a non Blu-Ray DVD. I now have the HD tv and the Blu-Ray. Is there not a standard way of connecting a tv/Blu-Ray/Sky+ and Video? The only real complication that my system has over others is the splitter in the loft. However, as all the remote tvs were working before I swapped the tv and dvd I assume that I simply have some wires crossed - so to speak! I had to disconnect all the cables as I also needed to change the stand the positioning of which made it impossible to note where all the existing wires were coinnected.

    Am I to assume that in changing from a non HD tv and non blu-ray dvd to an HD tv and Blu-Ray coaxial cable connections are no longer a possibility? I had assumed that provided I connected the coaxial cables in the same configeration as previously (whatever that configeration is) the other tvs in the house would work as they did previously. Is this not the case?

Hi, sounds like you have a setup where there is a loop from the aerial coming into the house(ist wall socket), then off to the splitter. The problem you will face here is the system you have is designed for analogue signals(RF) and with moving towards digital, and hdmi you can no longer distribute the signal to the rest of the system. You need to daisy chain the RF connections first sky box, then video, then TV, then back into the wall up to the loft and split to the other outputs. Try this and see how you go.

    quick correction. Dont go into the TV with the RF, use the scart leads/hdmi into the TV. This means in the other rooms, you should still be able to get TV, Sky, and whatever you play on the video. The bluray will not make it into the system.

    You could also connect the 1st RF out off the sat box to connect to the TV, and the second out to the splitter.

    The standard way these days of handling the connections is with an AV amplifier. The TV will also have connectivity and switching for multiple sources, but it can be alot easier to use an amp for the switching and the TV becomes more of a monitor to the whole deal. The only problem remaining is getting the digital signal back into RF format to distribute to the rest of the outlets.

You need to try and isolate the piece of equipment which is causing the problem.

You've already tried the aerial lead direct to the TV and this is OK.

Disconnect all scart leads and try the RF on its own.

Try the Aerial lead to video, then video to TV.

Try aerial direct to Sky box, then to TV.

Try just connecting the RF out from the Sky box to the TV (no aerial input), can you tune into a good channel 68 picture from the Sky box.

Then Try the VCR to the Sky box (no aerial input), see if you can tune into the VCR and Sky channel.
Hope that helps.......

How do i watch my tv with a broken remote


You can buy a universal remote and program it to work with your TV. I have always had good luck with RCA universal remotes. You can also program the remote to run your cable/sat box and your DVD/blue ray player. You could also go to the web site of the company that made the TV and order a new remote. This would be more expensive but the remote would run all the funcitions while the universal may not.
