    • As I recall the only thing you tried telling us was based on a quote that you selectively edited by Lord James of Blackheath. You misrepresented it as a statement of fact when it was actually a question which was laughed at by his peers in the House of Lords.  We told you it was garbage, you asked us to prove it and we did.   Remember?
    • you need to realise that for every person that does come to CAG and register and tell their story...there are poss 10'000 that don't but search the interweb whereby threads that are here pop up relating to like issues they are searching upon.   Most CAG siteteam and many other registered Caggers give advice that bears this in mind and post information which not only informs the starter of a thread upon what to do, but also takes into consideration the readers from the interweb that also read the relevant advice given that might not be brave enough to register and fess up.   to that end, there is very little alternative than to appear to give 'grief' [you deserve it - tough] to a cagger should certain previous advice not have been followed.....yours is a very classic case of such. hey I've found a backdoor CCJ.   to put it bluntly, had you have followed such previous advice, you most certainly would not be in the situation you are in here now.. .so by example, not giving you grief, for future readers...………..   ...never ever move without informing a debt owner of a move of address on any consumer debt that you last used or paid within the last say 7yrs. your credit file is a major key to ascertaining that information.... .but don't just read this advice come to the consumeractiongroup.co.uk website and let us help.   lecture over... what can you do..or more importantly....what can a claimant do now they have a default forthwith judgement against you. well we can't guess.... they might simply ignore it as 1000's of people with CCJ's find out..but it becomes an issue should you wish to say get a mortgage, remortgage or further credit.   i'm not going to enter into any of that here...that's for the reader to start a thread here and seek advice on their individual situation specific to them as you have done....   so...  bearing the all of the above in mind...over to you with regard to this backdoor CCJ.   as for the other debts that you didn't action before...go read your old thread and action what appropriate advice is given there for each type of debt that has been given should you wish to avoid any further backdoor CCJ's.   dx                    
    • hello my very good helpful friend. I am afraid to say that i did not. As i did not realise the relevance of it.   Should i be doing this right now of anyone on my credit file ?   Plz don't give me grief if u have already advised me...   do i do the ccs request now to everybody in that thread ?    
    • aha busted and stupid ...no wonder you've got mixed information here. never trust anything they say ..they have a very bad reputation for stating the truth.   now can you go get your credit file please..   there are cases whereby a council on historic CTAX debts do go for a county court CCJ, but a liability order from a magistrates court has far more clout legally than a county court CCJ and i've never heard of a court sending a bailiff out for 'multiple' CCJ collection.   me thinks he is pulling the wool here a bit and has looked at your credit file and seen CCJ's too so thought he'd chance his arm and use those as further leverage.   don't worry about the sat visit simply ignore do not answer the door if he appears. your task is too gather data at present.   credit file please..

Morning.

I have what may be a simple issue but it is confusing the hell out of me.

 

Previously, I had two HD Tv's (lounge/bedroom) connected by a one input, two output HDMI splitter (powered) and this worked fine.

 

Recently I have managed to save enough to purchase a 4K TV (manufacturer refurbished)for my lounge and this is where my problems started. Whenever I put HD content on my 4K TV, the signal will not go to my other TV.

I assumed it was something to do with the splitter so I bought a 4K splitter but things are the same.

I have standard HDMI cables and one is 7.5m long and I never had a problem before. The splitter I bought said it would be OK for lengths of up to 10m so what do I do?

 

Buy new HDMI cable with 4K capability or something else?

So what happens when the 4k TV cable is not attached ? Does the other TV then work normally ?

 

If so, is this because the 4k TV would be taking up full capacity from the source of the signal ? Because the 4k TV is so demanding on the output of your Skybox or other signal source, it is not offering anything to the other TV. If it works fine on non HD output, then it must be the way this 4k TV is draining. It is a bit like having lots of devices connected to a battery. If you have one device linked first that is more demanding on the power, other devices willstruggle to work.

I'm wondering if the newer TV invokes HDCP (a form of copy prevention), and this then stops the second device receiving an unencoded signal?

It may not be the leads or splitter at fault.

 

I'm not saying this is the problem (I don't know enough about HDCP to be sure it is or it isn't) but it might be worth looking into before buying any more leads / splitters!

Is your source just a normal freeview signal SS ?

Thanks for the responses so far.

 

For info. My Sky+ box is connected to the splitter and prior to buying the new TV, all content (SD + HD) was on both screens at the same time with no issues. I can control the Sky box from my bedroom via a VP eye device.

 

Since the changeover, the bedroom TV will not show any HD content at all, whether the lounge TV is on or off. It may be that the TV that now resides in my bedroom is too big for the cable to cope with HD signals. Embarassing moment here. It's a man thing!

The TV in my bedroom is a 47", the one in my lounge is a 55" and the original TV (that is now up for sale) in my bedroom was a 42". Do you think I am overcompensating for something :madgrin:

 

It may be just a case that the HDMI cable needs to be replaced with a better one.

yo need to turn off auto hdmi

Nope! I did that and still no picture on the bedroom TV

yo need to turn off auto hdmi

 

Tried that and it cut off all signal to the second TV. It only works when I have the setting on automatic but it is only SD, not HD

 

press the sky remote services button

goto settings

 

 

adjust the settings of hd res/hdmi control

 

Thanks for the advice DX. Just a shame nothing worked.

I tried various settings to no avail. Is it worth just buying a new HDMI cable that specifically says '4K' or 'UHD' I have seen various prices on the web and I'm not going to go into the huge price range. (Can't afford it now)

HDMI cable is an HDMI cable!!

 

 

same con as your need a digital aerial to get freeview..no such thing!!

 

 

you may get issues with multiple TVs and sky+ boxes ‘not talking to each other’, which can necessitate pulling cables in and out and rebooting several times to get things going properly

 

 

go one step at a time

get the TV that wont work going properly on its own

then connect the additional TV

 

 

you might also find that you need to disable HDMI ARC if that 2nd tv then re introduces the problem

I would have thought that if your sky box is set to output 4k signal then its nothing to do with which hdmi cables you have, more that the bedroom tv cannot display a 4k signal if its only HD.

This being the case, the only 2 options you have would be to put a 4k tv in the bedroom (expensive option) or to have sky multiroom and have a second box in the bedroom. Costs about a tenner a month i think.

HDMI cable is an HDMI cable!!

 

 

 

It would seem that there is a difference. My old HDMI cable must have been dead cheap as I bought one of these:

 

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01N1G46CK/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

I didn't pay the price shown ( benefits of being a member of VIPON). I actually paid £8.99.

 

As soon as I plugged it in, everything works as it should. One happy HD watching bunny :-)

Very very early leads were not full HDMI

Sorry you must have a very old lead then

 

Well done!!

Ahem! Just how old do you think I am :lol:

 

I did used to fit meters to TVs in my youth working with a company called Telebank (part of Granada)

 

I can't remember how much I paid for the original HDMI cable but I am sure it was cheap (just like me) so that would explain why I got nothing when in HD mode. All I have to do now is route the new cable around the wall and through into the bedroom which means moving most of my furniture out of the way as the cable will be fitted in the existing trunking :|
