Hook up problem

I disconnected another TV from direct TV (HDMI) and connected it to my Samsung 40 inch HDTV and I can only receive the HD channels, all others give me "not supported mode" message. I am also getting not supported mode, however my 3 year old was playing with buttons and i have no idea what he did!! Stupid babysitter!!

    'The problem was clearly stated.'
    'Clearly?'
    Why is your 3-year-old's playing with the buttons a problem?
    When are you getting a 'not supported mode' message?
    Who 'else' is? 'I got the error, and I did too'?
    What kind of TV do you have The type of cable you use isn't the most helpful bit of information for us.
    DirecTV isn't synonymous to HDMI, it's a type of cable that can be used with almost anything.
    Am I making myself clear?!

    As for your problem, unplug the satellite receiver and plug it back in after about 30 seconds.
    If that doesn't help, try using a component-video cable or a simple RCA cable to diagnose. I really can't help. Look at the DirecTV manual. Look at your TV manual. Look at the DirecV settings. Look at the TV settings.

I cant get digital channels on my element 40 inch element plasma t v why


Perhaps your TV is not compatible with the new digital signals you now get from your provider. But you should be able to get (buy) a digital receiver from your provider, that is can receive all channels and can be connected to the TV with a HDMI cable.

Can record Sky programmes but not view live.


You must connect up the TV to the SKY box, via Audio Visual cables too, in order to watch, recorded programs. You need to hook, up, Component, HDMI, or Composite, You select it by an EXTERNAL channel.
Connect the cable running from the wall into the "In" port on the Sky Box HD receiver. This cable brings in the signal to your receiver. Make sure the cable is securely fastened to the receiver, otherwise you might experience image and audio issues.
Attach an HDMI cable into the HDMI port on the Sky Box HDTV receiver. The HDMI is a single cable that provides both HD audio and video signals.
Plug the other end of the HDMI cable into an available HDMI port on the HDTV.
Power on the HDTV and the Sky Box HDTV receiver. Press the "HDMI" button on the TV's remote control. This will display the cable contents of the HD receiver onto the television.

I am about to receive an LG32LF4700 Freesat/HD TV If I disconnect the SKY Box and connect the TV direct to the Dish cable will I receive Freesat HD channels. Also can I connect an extra bedroom TV into the...


Yes you can split the signal out from the back of the Freesat/HD (not the TV)to the second TV.
Look what outputs are on the Freesat box - the RF (standard cable) output should go to the 2nd TV (TV set to CH3) and the a/v cables,HDMI or DVI cable should go to the new TV - Note:To receive HD the output from the Freesat should be either HDMI,DVI or Composite output (RGB video jacks) with red White for audio. If you have HDMI this is best - it also provides audio.

Blurry picture when hooked up to direct tv.Why?


try lowering the sharpness on your tv, because if the sharpness is to high it will make NonHD objects look blurry, also try changing the input cable or type of input.

Connecting HD cable box to DVR too HDTV


When I hooked up my HD cable box using an HDMI cable, I had to go into the cable screen menus and select HDMI output. You may have to do something similar when using an S-video cable. Your DVD recorder doesn't seem to have an HDMI input, so you'll have to use the S-video or (worst case) composite video (red, white, yellow cords). Your cable box may also be scrambling the signal so that you can't record. That may be why you can record by bypassing the cable box.
