I have just has a delivery of a Philips 32 Inch 32PHT5505/05 HD Ready tv but my old TV is connected to the sky box via a scart lead. This tv doesn't fit it. How can I connect it to my sky box please?
JA: What's the brand and model number of your TV? How old is it?
Customer: It is a Philips 32 Inch 32PHT5505/05 HD Ready brand new
JA: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?
Customer: I set it all up and did the 'set up' instructions. All worked well, but then it said no chanels had been found. The sky box is connected via the arial, but on our old TV it also connected with a scart lead. this tv does not fit one
