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.

THE FOCUS IS WRONG. i CANT READ ALL THE SCREEN ON SKY SPORTS NEWS.


Plasma screens don't have a focus as such so I suspect a problem with the upscaling of your pictures.
Try a different resolution value or screen aspect size.
Hope that helps.

I have a Sylvania 42 inch Plasma HD TV. It is 3


Hello

Before taking this to a local repair person, I suggest you check with your cable provider. See if they are having trouble with their HD transmission and then have them test your lines. Out here in Arizona with have constant problems with HD due to heat, rodents and poor installations. Your DVR only recorded the problems that were on your set. If these prove fruitless then take the TV to a reputable repair person.

Good Luck

It is HD ready, which means to get HD you will need to connect a HDMI cable to a HDMI source such as a SKY HD / VIRGIN HD SET TOP BOX or a HD DVD player to take advantage of HD.

Your TV may not support your HD channel signal. Check with HD DVD & non-HD DVD players to confirm.
