I moved my sky decoder from my old house with an old crt tv. Now i am in a new flat and sky is plugged into a HD tv and looks rather average. I know my sky hdi is the way to go if i want HD but is there any settings i can change on the SD decoder to look a little better on a HDTV?
Oh dear, you are using composite video. Switch to s-video as Cyril suggested (a small round multi-pin connector). You can also try component video (3x RCA for video + 2x RCA for audio) but I have found on my setup the TV samples the analogue component video at HD sample rate while the STB output at SD sample rate with a skew between signals. For me the best from SD source has been to use s-video.
I got a scart to component cable at lunch time and plugged it in but when i selected component on the TV it came up mode not supported. I tried changing scart settings on the decoder to RGB but it hasnt worked. What do i need to do?
I run into the problem setting to component then you will need to leave the setting on component reset the decoder by unpluging the power supply for about a 60 seconds plug back in the screen should read (one moment please) while rebooting then it should work
