Hello..I've just bought a Sony Bravia TV. I've got a Sky-Plus box but have so far been unable to tune in the Sky channels on the new Tv . The Tv seems to "recognise" them but is unable to show them. There's also a video cassette recorder in the mix. Previously I had a Black Diamond Tv and managed to get all the units working together harmoniously, but with with the new Tv, I am unable to work out which cable goes where. What should the various connections be?..Thanks....
Just chopping and changing the connections without success.
HelloWelcomeThanks for using JustAnswerI will need to know what cables you are using hdmi/scart/component?Anthony
Hello Anthony..I'm sorry but I'm not a technically-minded guy..I would say I'm using "old-fashioned" cables, so I suppose that means "component"..I'm pretty sure they are not hdmi, because I haven't had HD television, until now.. I tried scart but it didn't work for me.
HiAre you using sky + HD or sky +?I will need to know all this info if I am too help thanksIf your using just sky+ then you will be ok using the scart leads Anthony
I am using Sky Plus. But using the scart leads does not solve the problem (I've tried it).
HIWell theirs no reason why the scart leads wont work if I describe to you waht to do let me know were your going wrong1 Plug scart lead in sky + other end into TV2 Switch on the sky box and the TV3 With the TV remote control pick out the input using the input button of the TV remote so you may have to keep pressing this input button until you reach the desired input4 You should see some notification on screen that its sky+Let me know what happens when you do thatIf you dont get anything go into the setiings of the sky box and make sure the scart is set to priorityWe will get to the video laterAnthony
Hi..I did what you suggested. The inputs listed were,Digital, Analogue, AV1, AV2, HDMI1, HDMI2, Component, and PC..They all produced the same message "No Signal"..Under Digital there was the additional message "Selected programme is not tuned""
You say "if you don't get anything, go into the settings of the sky box and make sure the scart is set to priority".....I can't do this as nothing from the sky box is appearing on the TV screen.
HiTheirs something wrong concerning the sky box, you should at least be getting a blue screen from the box I really cant imagine this to be the TV, have you got a dvd player?just hook that upto the scart and see if that works if it does then you definetly have an issue with the sky boxLet me knowAnthony
I put a DVD in and it is playing normally...
HiWell theirs nothing being generated by the box fo some reason , I think the box has component output too however I think you tried that too?Best letting sky sort the box outThe set is in the clear because its working through scartAnthony
Thanks Anthony..I just had a local Tv dealer here and apparently the problem was that you have to go back to the factory settings and opt for the Sky Ireland system at the very beginning, rather than Sky UK (I'm in Ireland)..You couldn't possibly know that..Thanks very much for your help..
HelloWell at least I was right it was the sky box!Many ThanksAnthony
