Can't get a picture on our free to air TV set it keeps coming up no signal, we have a picture and sound on foxtel


you may find that the aerial inside your home was disconnected and used to wire up Foxtel in the roof, some technicians do that,

meaning all your Tv Outs on the wall would now be connected to Foxtel now instead of the aerial

if you can gain access to the junction of where all the Cable Coax wiring is in the roof make sure they haven't used the tv aerial cables for Foxtel ....just go check where your Aerial comes in and see it is still connected to the junction and not pulled out and a foxtel is going into it instead of the aerial

I would like to connect my DVD player and Foxtel to me tcl smart tv but have no idea how it do it. Can somebody please help me.


depends on the output from Foxtel
is it antenna rf coaxial on foxtel ?
is it hdmi output on foxtel box ?
is it an AV RCA cable output on foxtel box ?
what does dvd player use for its output ?
Suggest you google these connection interface types and work out what is the output types
if rca then use av input on tv
is hdmi then use hdmi input on tv
then use select input source on tv to switch to whatever you used.

Yellow= video lead - connect to either terminals C (have you tried all 3?)
Red/White = audio leads - connect to D

Make sure source<on remote> is set to correct video terminal <1,2 or3>
If that doesnt work perhaps try the yellow cord going to either of terminals F untill you get a picture... but it should work!?

Hi I have two freeview boxes running from one aerial which split at a boooster box, one tv works fine, it the farthest away from the booster box, but the other has some channels freezing up and stuttering,...


Hi,

The problem you describe is called "Digital Cliff Edge" and it's caused by signal loss. I wont go into the specifics of that at the moment as it's not going to help solve your problem. I you want more information about DCE, try an internet search.

As you are using the same aerial and booster/splitter for both TVs, you are correct in ruling these out as the cause of the problem. The fault is probably in the co-ax cables or connections but you might have a faulty freeview box. Please run through the following checks to establish the source of the fault.

1. Swap your Freeview Boxes - you shouldn't need to re-scan/tune as they are running off the same aerial..
If the Freeview box from the TV that is working correctly freezes and stutters on the other TV, the fault is probably in the cables or cable connections. Next, try the "faulty" Freeview box on the TV that is working correctly. If you get stuttering sound and freezing/pixellation you probably have a faulty Freeview box. DO NOT SWAP ANY CABLES FOR THIS TEST.

If the problem is the same after swapping the freeview boxes:

2. Swap any non-fixed cables, e.g the co-axial "fly-leads" and scart cables - one at a time. See if the fault "moves" with the swapped cables. "Fly leads" are the short co-ax cables that link the Freeview box to the TV or the TV to a wall mounted aerial socket. If the fault "moves" with the swapped cable, you have identified the source of the fault and should either repair or replace this cable.

Try these tests first and post back with the results. If you haven't identified the source of the fault, I will try to assist you further.

Regards,
BElectric

Hi Michelle,
Does the Foxtel have a slot in the back marked HDMI Out? If so, this is the best possible connection to the Bravia. However you would need to pick up the HDMI cable (like bestbuy) It is a video & sound all in one. Do the 6 cords end in RCA jacks, and are they color coded?

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.

Buzzing and lines with Foxtel


I had this exact same problem, which was continuous pink bands or lines that rolled upwards, as well as a continuous hum or buzz. This problem was isolated to Foxtel; it didn't happen with the DVD. Differently, this problem happened immediately I changed from my really old TV to a new LCD TV. I experimented with the leads (Scart or otherwise) too without change. So I got Foxtel to come and have a look and the guy brought with him what he called an "isolator" which was a small box-shaped thing (about 3inches by 2 inches) that he added to the cable's its exterior connection point. Immediate and complete solution - no more lines or buzz!
