Hi Roy & SarahThought all was well but sadly not so.Checked everything this morning and this is the resultSamsung tv in lounge. Scart from tv to dvd player. Youview box to AV sender. R: Via SCART? This is important, but you still haven’t answered either Sarah or me to confirm or deny this.Youview box to hdmi 1 on Samsung.Sony in bedroom. Av receiver to scart using a scart adapter. Use the Hdmi channel on the remote to watch the program.R: EDIT: I still don’t see how choosing HDMI on the Sony remote can get you the output from an analogue AV receiver on a SCART connection. Unless the Input had been renamed in the past, but is actually an AV ONE.Problem. If the Samsung is on and connected to catchup (EDIT) player with adverts...R: (removed query and substituted ’player’ for ‘hub’, to lessen my own confusion) ....sound on Sony is ok. Switch off the Samsung and when the ads come on, the Sony will not have any sound once the ads have finished. Switch Samsung on again and the sound returns to the Sony. All players affected apart from BBC (no ads) & Netflix. Roy do you still want me to do the 2 disconnects as per your previous email ?R: Yes. When you ask for advice, and receive some, it is often desirable to take it. As long as it does not sound dangerous or destructive or just plain wrong, of course.... Rgds Barried
Hi Roydisconnected the av sender.... result no yv to Sony upstairs but yv to samsung downstairsdisconnected HDMI to Samsung....result yv to Sony upstairs but no yv to Samsung downstairsWhat come up on the Sony remote is the followingAV1 which is just freeviewHDMI which is used to watch yvAV23Video 4While your help is greatly appreciated please try to be a little more understanding. I am 83 not 13 and not an audio geek but I do know that a router is not a hub and that ITV rebranded 3 years ago and dropped the word player and now call their catchup ITVHub,hence I used hub generally to refer to all the catchups I did not list apart from BBC who call it iplayerRgds Barrie
Hi Sarah & Roy. Reading your emails made me look at the connections on the Samsung. Fairly complex as we have vhs & dvd connected which we haven't used since we got youview.I had to move the tv recently and had connected in to hdmi 2 stupidly.I swapped it to hdmi1 and everything is ok now. Still puzzles me why BBC had sound but any commercial hub only had sound on the adverts.The sender & receivers work well by the way both upstairs where we can switch the youview box on and the kitchen where there is no ariel.Looking to buy a new smart tv will do away with vhs & dvd I think. Just find it very difficult deciding which one to buy as I would like freesat.Thanks for your help in curing my problemBarried
Yes I have Hdmi ready tv. You are doubtless right. The hdmi cable is probably superfluous. i am no expert at technology, as you can tell, I’m sorry if this annoying. I have reported the fault to BT and they will be sending an engineer next week. Nothing changed in my set up, so even if I shouldn’t have had the hdmi and scart connected together, it worked fine until a few weeks ago. I’ll wait to see what they say. Thanks for your comments.
