Hi all

I have just purchased a 46" Samsung and have the connected MY Sky and of course have a connectioin to the aerila for the built in freeview.

Currently if I turn on the tv on it defaults to Freeview so to get Sky I have to manually change the source to sky, not a problem for me but my good lady wife is getting a bit annoyed with it.!!

I have realsied that now I have My Sky I dont really have a need for Freeview so was wondering I disconnected the aerial connectioin so Freeview was no longer available and when I went to turn the TV on would it default to the Sky source or is there soemthing in the menu which allows you to choose which source the tv defaults to

Hope this all makes sense!!!

Cheers

Why would you unplug the antenna feed,the PQ is streets ahead of Sky.
Label your Sky input,and when you hit the source buttton,it should be there in front of you,assuming you dont have too many other inputs connected.

Sky is going to have the HD Freeview channels as of June aren't they ? Hence no need for a Freeview setup if you have MySky HDi.

Correct but more likely July than June.
