Any help on why we don't see any HD picture? We get the programmes, but no picture shows on any HD channel. The cables are fine. Since we got this new TV, the HD channels don't show picture, although it allows us to press any HD channel. Standard programmes are fine, but when wanting to use HD channels. No picture. Everything was fine on the old TV.

From what I know. We use an aerial. Lead that goes into the BT Box > Into the TV. (Scartlead). The HD channels come up, but no picture shows, no sound either. Just black screen. Our standard non HD channels work fine. Anything with HD doesn't show picture. So I'm not sure if it's to do with the Scartlead or the TV. As the old one we had was fine. HD channels had picture.
We've sorted it now. The issue was to do with the aerial cable in the BT Box. Was given weak signal due to the positioning of it. The Scartlead had nothing to do with the issue. Thanks for the help.
LOL, watching a HD channel in SD via a scart lead basically defeats the objective of watching an HD channel anyway. Why would anyone choose to uses scart leads these days?
I agree with @gomezz @NigelB72 and @MJH62 you should not be using scart for watching anything in HD. As said HDMI cable connected to your TV from the box. You will get better picture and sound from using an HDMI cable. When watching anything in HD.
HDMI cables dont cost as much as they used to. Just avoid buying some of the ones that are on sale in the likes of Poundland.
You will also find some TVs made in the last few years no longer have a scart connection at the back of the TV.
