    Avant Problem

    Good Day Fella's

    I have a problem with my Avant Tv, firsty I can't select the Sat function, from the Tv or the remote. And when I plug in a digi box I get sound but not very loud, and I have to pull the scart lead in and out then I get a picture and also the only Scart that seems to be working is the Built in VCR one. When I finally get a picture the Selection on top of the Tv tells me its Video -2 and then when I turn the Tv off, I have to go through the same process again! which is kind of annoying. When the Tv is working the picture quality is very good. Oh and how would I get the picture to change fro 16.9 aspect to widescreen? Thanks in advance Nidul

    Hi Nidul,

    You need to assign the digi box to sat in the connections menu. Your manual will explain this. To change the aspect you need to add the 'picture' button to your beo4 and select the appropriate picture setting. Your manual should explain this also.

    Good luck!

    Hi Nidul, to deal with your final point, I thought 16:9 WAS widescreen! Do you mean 4:3 to widescreen?

    Firstly make sure you are using a fully wired Scart lead? Some/many are not.

    Are you connecting to a Sky box? If so, make sure you are connected to the the correct scart socket from the box (there are 2) as in most of them only one socket outputs on pin #8. This pin sends a signal to the TV to autoswitch to the correct vdeo format. 

    I'm not familiar with the Avant only the Beovision models, so the other setup advice given may be correct I don't know.

    On a Beovision however, using the Beo4, it's not 'picture' which changes the aspect but 'format' to aspects 1,2 or 3 selected on the Beo4.
