    I have the same problem and lickwish is wrong. It isnt to do with memory it is to do with the tuner being the initial channel the tv goes to on start up. If you have a scart lead plugged into it (i,e, sky non HD) with it set to "scart control on" then the tv will go straight to that. For somereason it does not search for hdmi conected devices. Unfortunately I still dont have a solution but maybe someone does????

If you have to keep on changing the settings and the tv will not store them then there is a fault with the internal memory of the tv. If you can return the tv or call out a competant technician. Hope this helps.

Hi.
Connect skybox using scartlead, or if you have HD use HDMI lead connection..
Select connection by using the AV (alternate video input) on your remote control--this will switch from freeview to sky.

Ive had sky hd fitted today and cant get sound on tv hd settings but can on normal sd


Hi it is entirely possible that the sky decoder has not been setup to output sound to HDMI. I assume you are using HDMI lead and this lead goes from decoder to TV.

I am running a Sky + HD box through my television Hitachi 26LD6600 using a HD lead. I have balanced the sky remote to the tv, but whenever we turn to Sky/digital tv we have to manually change the tv...


Hi, without a manual to hand, i don't know, but my Panasonic had the same problem, but I found somewhere in the settings, I could change it, it has something to do with AV and Digital TV and hdmi setup, give it a check.

I hope this helps to some degree, but give us a shout if you require more help.

Got sky installed today only thing getting on screen is "no video signal"


Sounds like the "channel" you are trying to watch on is not the one it's plugged into, or a faulty lead.
check the connection from the sky box to the tv, and select the av or hdmi channel that it is plugged into on the tv.
check the lead by swapping it for a known good one, for example from a dvd or ps3, but unplug from the dvd/ps3 and plug into the sky box(make sure that all the units are powered off when swapping leads) and try on the channel you normally watch/use the dvd/ps3.
If you suspect the sky is at fault, press menu on the sky remote and then flick through all the av/hdmi channels until you find the menu, then try to reinstall/retune the sky box.
If that don't work phone sky......................

Just bought a Panasonic TX-P42G10B 42in 600Hz Full HD with freesat HD built in. We currently have Sky +, but i was unwilling to pay the extra a month for the sky HD service. Therefore this tv seemed fine....


Use a good quality scart leads for starters.
connect oon end to tv and the other labeled tv on sky box. The other is labeled vcr. connect another lead from vcr or dvd to that connection.
If you have a hd dvd player or Bluray, then buy a HDMI lead and connect straight to one of the HDMI inputs on the tv. I know this is late but i hope it still helps you and anybody else who may read this.

How do i set up my plasma tv just to watch sky on the tv i was given a tv pioneer pdp-42mve1 and have got the power lead and a lead with a scart and 6 push in leads coluers are green blue blackyellow red...


Hello Paul,
all you need to do is plug the power in, put the scart lead into the back of your Pioneer tv, the other end of your scart into the bottom scart of your sky box named TV.

you will also need to connect the sky cable to the box to receive your signal. its a F type connector ie it screws on.

The other cable you have with the 6 push in coloured leads they are Component cable and the red and white ones are Audio cables. You will not need these cable unless your sky box is a HD box then i would suggest you get a HDMI cable instead of using component (less cables showing) dont be fooled into buying gold plated HDMI cables as they do not make any difference to the picture Quality as the back of the sky box is alley and so is the telly. So please dont waste your money on that type of cable.

Hope this Helps

HOW TO CONNECT SAMSUNG 40 LCD TV TO SAMSUNG SURROUND TZ215 THRUGH SKY + HD BOX.


you will need the following = HDMI LEAD
Optical Audio Lead
Red and White phono Lead

Sky HD Box > connect to Tv via HDMI Lead.

Sky HD box > Connect the optical Audio, and the Phono Leads To your Surrounds sound.

The reason I am wanting you to connect the phono's as well as the optical audio out. Not all programs are transmitted with Dolby D so you will need these for normal sound to come through your surround sound.

One last thing I would like you to check is the sound settings on your Hd box.

OLD PROGRAM GUIDE:
On your sky remote. Press SERVICES, 4, 2, then ensure that Dolby D is displayed if not highlight and using the blue button change this to Dolby D. then arrow down to save.

NEW PROGRAM GUIDE:
On your sky remote. Press SERVICES, 0, Arrow along to SOUND then arrow down and change this to DOLBY D Then press the GREEN button.

Hope this Helps you out. IF so please leave a thumbs up

Sky


You do not say which breed of sky you have.. old analogue, digital, sky + or sky HD if you have old analogue then you may have to connect through aerial connection, digital will have a scart socket to connect to your tv, sky + will have the same and finally the cream of the crop sky HD will have hdmi in addition to scarts.

The very least you need to do for a digital picture (not to be confused with hi-def which it isn't) is connect through scart lead then unless it auto-switches to scart input upon switching on sky use your tv remote to select the ext input 1, 2 or 3 etc (some remotes have a button called source for this some call it input etc) select each ext input until you find the one your sky is connected to
