Issue#164: Sony - HDMI and Virgin TiVO box how to connect them?

  • Hi,

     

    i've recently purchased a S80C to, and I am using the Virgin Media service with a TiVO box. I've connected the TVs to the box using a HDMI cable. My issue is when I want to Chang channels I always have to use the box remote, which is very annoying and limits the app finctina

    ities. Also when I first setup the tv/box, the tv didn't found any services.

     

    Is there any way I can use the TV remote for changing channels on the box, while using HDMI connection, if so how do I do it?

     

    I would like to thank you in advance for you help

     

    thank

  • Issue#44761: Sony - 4K/QFHD HDMI output issue

    This weekend we had a customer bring up and issue they were having with their FS7.  When shooting in 4K or QFHD in 23.98 they were unable to get the HDMI output to display on their SmallHD AC7 or their Teradek Bolt.  When they adjusted their frame rate to 29.97 or 59.94 the output worked no problem.  I was able to replicate this phenomenon with our FS7 and AC7, I tried every combination of output settings I could think of with no result. Does anyone have any insight as to why the output wouldn't work with those particular devices when the camera is in 23.98 opperation?  I was able to get it to work with a PVM 1741 monitor, so I would guess that the issue is in the way the camera does the output. I also tested this on the F55 and had the same problem.

  • Issue#154402: AV Sync Issue w/Elgato HD/HDMI Cloner Box

    I'm recording video over HDMI from my STB with two different devices. I'm attempting to find some kind of workable setup but I'm having a little trouble with lip-syncing. First I'm using Elgato's Game Capture HD and processing the video through HandBrake. I'm experiencing a minor (though noticeable to me) lip-sync issue. With my EyeTV over component my setup has been fine for years so I'm wondering if this is unique to HDMI capturing? I'm unable to find anyone who has a similar issue with the Game Capture, most av sync issues for elgato devices appear to deal with adding in a new audio stream through a mic. This has nothing to do with any game streaming mic setup, I'm not adding in an outside audio stream. I simply want the audio to match the video. The audio appears to me only slightly off and its consistent through the video. In fact, unlike a dubbing issue, all of my audio appears to match with whoever is speaking but their lips appear slightly off. Similarly, I record the same co

    When I choose Extend Display, it says that Display 2 connects to VGA. I don't have a VGA, I have an HDMI. I have never had this problem with this laptop connecting the hdmi. I used to do it all the time now I'm seeing this VGA option and I cannot change it. It no longer recognizes my hdmi connection (hdmi is brand new btw). Does it have something to do with software updates? Please help!!!

  • Issue#428181: Sony - STR-DN850 'Control for HDMI' annoyances with Sky HD Box

    Hi Guys, Little bit of an annoyance with the Control for HDMI option on my STR-DN850 which hopefully someone can help with.I have Control for HDMI on for ease of use, and so the ARC funcitonality works when using the Netflix app etc on my Bravia. This all works great. However, with the Sky HD box, everytime i open the Sky menu or select a channel, the 'overlay' screen (for lack of a better term) appears covering the bottom third of the screen, indicating the HDMI input - in my case saying 'Sky'. This doesnt appear if the Control for HDMI option is off. I'm assuming it pops up every time as the signal is changing/quickly turning off/on when selecting a channel? Is there a way to stop this, as it stays on for a few seconds every time i do something? Thankyou!

  • Issue#452981: Sony - HDMI ARC Issue on KD-49X8005C using JBL SB350 Sounder

    Hi everyone, I have a Sony KD-49X8005C 4K TV and have just bought a JBL SB350 soundbar with the intention of connecting it via HDMI and making use of the ARC feature to control the volume, on/off with the one remote control. I've got it working eventually .. the TV has ARC on HDMI port 4 .. it wasn't clear that I would have to switch to this input to get it connected.. it works well and sounds great. However when I switch the TV off and back on again the connection is not remembered and I have to switch back to HDMI4 to restore the connection before continuing. This is not ideal.. surely if HDMI4 is the ARC connection it should remeber the audio connection without having to "refresh" it manually. I thought I had read somewhere that the HDMI and Optical connections should be used together in some circumstances .. I havent tried this but is there any scenario that this would work? Any comments appreciated Thanks Craig

  • Issue#565011: Sony - HDMI Connectivity issue with PS3 and PS4

    Please Help.  I am having an issue with PS3 and PS4 HDMI connectivity.  I have a KDL52W4100 and a da2400es receiver.  The PS3 and PS4 have both worked for some time through these two devices.  2 months ago I thought the PS3 hdmi went bad as it wouldnt display video/audio to through the tv or receiver.  So I set aside the PS3.  2 days ago the PS4 did the exact same thing.  I swapped hdmi cables, trying a different cheap hdmi, monster, and audioquest with no luck.  I connected the PS4 to all othe TVs in the house and it works fine.  I did the same with the PS3 and it is also fine.  I spent 3 hours on the phone with Sony Field install support.  This guy was probably the most intelligent guy I have spoken to ever with an issue.  He stated that he believed it was an HDCP lockout/handshake issue.  We updated the tv firmware, factory reset the tv, ps3 and ps4, the receiver and tried new cables. He was utterly stumpped. I have be

  • Issue#591792: Sony - Sony Bravia - HDMI Sound issue

    Hi All, I have a Sony Bravia KDL-42W635A, this has been working perfectly until a couple of days ago. I was watching a recorded program on my Virgin TiVo box, then all of a sudden the picture went fuzzy (like when a VGA cable was loose on a computer) and the TV then turned off. After the TV started again, the picture on the HDMI connections is fine but there is no sound. I know there is sound on the TV as Youtube works fine. I also know the HDMI cables are working fine because I am currently using an old TV. I also noticed that the hard drive I had connected was also not being detected. I reset the TV back to factory settings and went through the set up again, still no joy :-(  Can someone please help? ThanksZubair

    Is there a compatibility issue with my Sony KDL40EX400 TV and HDMI computer Lenovo Stick 300-0IBY. The Lenovo works on all my other TVs including a 22" Sony. I updated my firmware on the  KDL40EX400 TV  and also did a rest. I know the HDMI ports work because my Chrome Cast works on this TV. Cable Matters went through a number of suggestions but none worked. Lenovo had no answers. Do you have some ideas or is it just not compatible.

    Hey there ,My issue what is bothering me is from past few months when ever im watching something via HDMI on my TV connecting laptop or X box Console . The HDMI goes on and off on its own , like 15 minutes it works fine then no signal , then it reconnects on its own . This was happening from last 4 months and due to lack of time i couldnt get it rectified or find a reason why this is happening. Now if i factory reset it works for 30minutes and then again off and on on its own . No issues with cable and component cables yet . I would like to know the cause is it HDCP issue or something is broken . How should i proceed with this now ?Please help i called sony service guy they said its just because of moisture and nothing else . but i think its really annoying for me to live with it .Currently i have to factory reset my tv everytime and then switch it off , then its hdmi with xbox or laptop works for 30minutes or even less now and it shows no signal ..changed cable 5 times still no help

  • Issue#937739: Help me fix Sony BDP-BX59 Blu-Ray HDMI Issue

    I bought Sony BDP-BX59 Blu-Ray Player (3D) from Costco about 3 to 4 years ago. It's hooked up to my Onkyo Receiver in Media Room and Receiver is connected to Epson projector. Everything was working fine until last month. I started experiencing few screen flickering using Blu-Ray. It was happening randomly in middle of watching a movie. Last week it completely went OFF and my projector complains "No Signal". I initially thought it's my Onkyo Receiver causing an issue, so I directly hooked up BP to Projector and still seeing the same issue. I also hooked it to my Vizio 4K TV and same issue there. I finally decided to hook up BP using Component cables and that worked fine! So my suspect is that HDMI port on Blu-Ray player has died. Any suggestion on how to troubleshoot or fix the issue? Or is this a sign of buying new Blu-Ray player now?

    Virgin Media’s corporate Twitter account has teased an image of a new cable TV box, which is expected to support Ultra HD 4K programming. Earlier this year, Virgin Media confirmed it was developing a 4K version of its TiVo set-top box to rival the likes of Sky Q and BT Ultra HD. It now seems the company will be unveiling the box later today in a live stream on its Twitter account. No further information has been given about the box, although it’s expected to offer similar features to Sky Q such as being able to start a programme in one room and continue on a different device in another. https://twitter.com/VirginMediaCorp/...06079380389888

  • Issue#686: Sony - Why won't Sony mdr-zx770bn connect to windows 8.1?

    I recently received a set of these headphones as a birthday present. The purpose was to replace various headsets that I use with my computer and cellphone with a single appliance that connects to all of them, and allows me to use voice recognition software. Whilst the audio quality of the headphones with my phone is stupendous the fact remains that I cannot connect to any of the computers that I use. They are all loaded with Windows 8.1, which prompts me to load the device drivers, without which the headphones not an available option for audio output/microphone input. Sony's support site lists no drivers whatsoever for download, and includes the disturbing message that the company does not warrant the compatibility of this product with Windows. Surely this should be made clear on the cover of the box so that people do not part with large sums of money for a product that is of no use to them. Or am I missing something? I believe this breaches my consumer rights under Australia
