Press services then system set up then signal test the signal strenth and qaulity should be about half way at least it shows up grey lock indicator should be ok if it shows not locked your dish has been moved and needs to be alighned do this when the weather is fine clounds and rain reduce the signal and may even stop it all together sky will charge you £65 to alighn the dish but you can buy a meter and do your self get 1 from bandq ebay maplins worth checking for breakes in the cable going from your box to the dish and if you can try your box on a friends dish just to rule out a faulty box of course there is a chance the lnb on the dish has gone faulty but you can get these cheap to or even borrow a friends to try unscrew the cable and look how it is fixed on useualy they just pull of but it might have a clip on or tape on

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.......

My 61in rca scenium is saying unuseable signal and there is no sound or picture


For whichever input the monitor is currently set to (i.e. Input 1, HDMI 2, etc.) it is telling you that the signal it is receiving is unusable. The question first is the monitor set to the input you truly wish to use?

If it is, then check the cabling between the monitor and the source device (cable/satellite box, game box, etc.) If you believe it the source is working, try swapping the cable or using a different input.

If that fails, try hooking up the source to another monitor and seeing if it works there. If you have a long cable run, try higher quality cables, the video signal can degrade over long runs (> 25').

It sounds like the monitor is receive *a* signal, just not one with enough data to be useable. Probably a bad cable.

Letters appearing on screen


Turn off captions (if not on the TV, on your cable or satellite receiver), because that's what's going on. TV or whatever tunes it are most likely providing bad or corrupted caption data, and that's an attempt to decode it. Turning off captions should eliminate the issue (unless you need captions, in which case you should try to improve the quality of the signal into your TV, which is beyond the scope of this particular question).

It say 480 stretch on the screen how do I turn it to 1080 for my Hd tv


Make it sure that you have a 1080 signal from your source(eg. HD receiver, bluray player etc.). Try pressing format button on the remote until you get full picture . Or try changing the format or aspect ration in your satellite or cable box.

You do need a separate HD Receiver, HD Satellite, and or HD Cable Box to receive HD. It only has a Standard NTSC Tuner built in.
I hope this helps,

Just bought a samsung ps50a557s3f 50" plasma tv and the picture isnt very good.Have only got normal sky at the moment and i was wondering what the best settings are


Hi Smudger

Not sure if you still have this issue, but i have just bought this TV & also use sky (not + or HD)...

I got myself a Monster Cable Home Theatre surge protection unit from comet, basically it helps filter out all the background interference (picture & sound) & helps boost the signal sent to the TV..

I use a gold plated scart lead from the sky box to the TV & the picture is spot on.......i've not noticed any ghosting/pixeling etc & am well impressed...

The unit came with a top end HDMI cable & cost £135 (bit excessive you may think, but to buy the unit & cable seperate would cost £250!!) + the cable is a 'cable for life', so you can get a free updated cable as technology progresses :-)

My sky signal was always at half power (you can view this from the sky menu options) & now its almost full signal
