Can any one offer advise. I have a Sony HT75W tv, which I am trying to connect a free view box to. The TV does not have a scart socket so I have bought a scart to HD15 lead (as instruction book says) but can't seam to get tv to reconise the free view box.
I have done all the obvious things.
Pls help

Sammy: Your problem could be caused by various reasons and which might not be easy to rectify, you probably find it easier if you had purchased a scart to composite output converter lead (even pound shops sell them) and connected the phono plugs on the said lead into the input sockets on the rear of your Sony, as these are for that purpose.

Sockets by the way, being behind the thin plastic panel on the rear of the set, the lead referred to having a scart socket on one end and three phono plugs on the other, the yellow one being the video.

I seem to be getting poor signal on BBC Channels & DAVE - severe breakup or no signal. HD is fine. Am I picking up the wrong transmitter? How can I tell.

Location is Knutsford - WA16

I am experiencing problems. I am currently receiving no BBC or BBC related stations. I have looked on the map and no fault has been shown. Can you please advise. Thank you.

John Swift: The two leads from the dish are totally independant of each other and so you just leave one of them unconnected to anything.

Although its not good practice to join satellite cables in an ordinary junction box as you should really use an "F" plug on each cable to be joined and a coupler piece to link the two "F" plugs together, you will though be OK with what you are doing so long as none of the fine wires that make up the screen accidentally touches the inner connection.

By the way the previous occupier either used Sky+ or they had a Freesat recorder, as twin inputs are necessary for both the mentioned.

Ken Shipley: I don't understand. Does the Samsung TV not have built-in Freeview?
