Question about Projection Televisions

1 Answer

Hi there, I live in a apartment on the side of my bosses house & he has 2 sky boxes, his is sky plus & mine is a normal box. Their both run off the same contract not separate. But when my boss isn't using his sky mine works perfectly, then when he does use the sky mine takes ages to change the channel, like the signals affected by there been both boxes in use? But why does this happen if there are 2 boxes? Miss Duncan

If it is the same as directv - you used a splitter on the cable between the 2 boxes - you need to us a multi switch - or dual lnb

fyi - the boxes change channels by varying the voltage to the dish - if 2 boxes are giving different voltages it does not work

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...


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.......

Hi

When you take Freeview from Sky its called FreeSat. You have to order the card from them by phoning them (click on link below for more info) and when you get the card follow the steps they give you to have it activated which takes around 30 mins to do.

I was wondering what is the typical ideal set up in terms of picture settings to obtain the best picture from my 46" samsung 6 series. It is currently connected to my sky box (not HD)through a normal...


If you are not connected to HD, pixelation can easily occur, especially if you are using an analogue connection. Here is a list, from best to worst, of how you should connect the video on your system.

1) BEST - HDI cable between the TV HDMI in and the sky box HDMI out. This is a full bandwidth digital audio and video connection.

2) BETTER - S-Video between your TV and sky box (with L & R audio)

3) GOOD - Component Video with L & R audio

4) STANDARD - single video cable (yellow) along with L & R audio

5) standard coax

These are listed, as stated, from best to worst quality. If you are not using a digital connection (HDMI), then pixelation can be expected.

Hi I just bought a Wharfedale DTR250 twin tuner HDD. How can I connect it up to be able to record sky programmes? On my old VCR all I did was set the VCR to EL1 and the selected Sky programmes recorded OK....


My solution was to return item to Argos, got my money back and will now go ahead and order a Sky Plus Box. Apparently these type of Recorder will not record Sky programs!!
