I really need some help here - SKY HD problems


Forum Editor

Likes # 0

I have a Sony Bravia TV, a SKY+ HD receiver, and a DVD player.

The SKY engineer connected everything when he installed the SKY box some time ago. Everything worked perfectly, but last week a burglar alarm installation engineer disconnected the lot, and do you think I can get it all working again?

I can watch TV via the SKY box, but I can record nothing, and if I use the TV controller to switch channels instead of the SKY controller I can then only get the SKY menu - no programs and no sound.

Can anyone tell me how the various aerial/satellite/RF/scart leads should be connected between the three devices?

The TV has two scart sockets.

TV and satellite technology is very definitely not my thing - as my wife keeps reminding me.

I am glad it is sorted. Now is the time to look at your workload.

Yes. I think it will be right up your street as you connect your HD AV equipment via Scart. No need for SkyHD.

Youview looks like freeview TV. I'll be going the freesat road. Better quality picture.

Youview will be HD, and the picture quality should be every bit as good.

I'm a bit suspicious of "Free, no subscription".

That's how Freeview started.

Where are they getting the frequencies from?

My understanding is that analogue frequencies becoming free have already been allocated, and the rest of the spectrum is already pretty full.
