SOURCE: HD capability

yes, but you have to use digital cables to hook it up to the source in order for you to get HD.

For video, the best is HDMI or DVI input. The second best is S-video.

For audio, you need to use either digital or optical connections.

Analogue video and audio connections will not provide HD.

Through Sky+ HD when selecting the HDMI connection I get the following statement through Sky "This diplay does not support HDCP....." Any help please Rob

hi,

try to connect the set top box in any other HDMI input of ur tv. reason is bellow read it carefully.

p { margin-bottom: 0.21cm; } HDCP stands for High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection and was developed by ----------. It's nothing more than a security feature requiring compatibility between the sender and receiver, like HD cable set-top box and the TV. By compatibility, mean HDCP technology built into both devices.
Think of HDCP as a security license key like you would input when installing a computer program. Only this security key is invisible to you and me but not your TV.
It works by encrypting a digital signal with a key that requires authentication from the transmitting and receiving product. If authentication fails then the signal fails, which means no picture on the TV screen.

Buy a HDTV that has HDCP capabilities. Most will have this in at least one HDMI input but be sure to verify this before buying the TV.

Notice that "in at least one port." Not every HDMI port on the TV will be HDCP compliant so be sure to read your TV user manual if you plan on connecting a HDMI cable to your TV.

I have a toshiba regza hd ready flat screen tv. Need to program the sky remote for it but do not know the model number. Can't find it on the tv anywhere or find the manual! Any ideas on how I could find...

Hi,

The model number should be on a white sticker on the back of the TV. If you can find it, please post back and I will obtain the correct code for your Sky remote.

There are some Generic codes for Toshiba TVs which are:

0536 1536 and 1221 for Rev 8 remotes
0063 0536 and 1121 for Rev 6 remotes
0063 0121 and 0536 for Rev 4 remotes

You can find the Rev number of your Sky remote on a sticker inside the battery compartment. If it just says RC1600/00 then you have the original Sky remote, but you can still try the above codes.

If you need instructions on programming the remote, please post back with both your model number and Sky remote Rev number and I will post the codes and instructions.

Regards,
BElectric

Could you please tell me if my LC-32GA5E tv can work with sky HD.The manual tells about switching to hd mode,but there seems to be no where to connect hd to the set.The tv is about 5 years old. thanks...

This is an HD ready TV and can definitely be used with Sky HD, but ONLY if the Sky box is connected to the TV with an HDMI cable. It will not work if connected with a scart cable.

So you need 2 things. Firstly, you need to buy an HDMI cable (see picture) if you haven't already got one. Secondly you need to locate the HDMI sockets on your TV and Sky box. The sockets will have the HDMI logo (see picture) next to them.

Please rate my solution if you find this helpful. Thanks.330cd4e.jpg

Is it hd

Strictly speaking to be HD Ready a TV must fullfill 2 things:

1. Have a Screen Resolution of at least 1024 x 768.
2. Have at least 1 HDMI Socket.

Your TV has neither of these, so it is NOT HD Ready, however, it will still be more than capable of showing SKY HD, and it will still look very nice indeed.

I would need a list of the connections on the rear of the TV to tell you which cable to buy, but:

If it has DVI, then a simple HDMI to DVI cable will do for the video.

If it has component, i.e Yb, Yr etc then you will need a more expensive HDMI - Component Video cable.

But otherwise, yes, SKY HD will work fine.

I hope this helps.
