    No, you can use indoor but it will still depend on reception

    its just the plasma on its own but i did try the xbox and there is still no screen only sound

    you seem to have a tv problem, you will often get a fuzzy picture if the signal is poor and little sound .... call them


    it may be worth checking tv settings to make sure they are all set to factory settings

    sounds like a broken tv then to me. Do you just get a blue screen and sound?

    are you connecting via HDMI?

    if it doesnt even display a menu on the screen when you press the button then its most likely knackered then I'm afraid.

    Its a fault I reckon. Call them out, as if its been working perfectly and picture just went - then its needing a repair done. ours needed a new part

    No need to be sarcy now! I was just saying it's no different to any other telly with regards to the aerial, which is what you asked about in the first place.

    Have you checked that the hdmi/scart cable is plugged in properly? If it's not quite home you could get sound but no picture. Don't forget to check both ends (I'm only saying!!)

    try pushing the scart leads in further , i bet its that

    Thats what I'm thinkig. It's rare for the picture to just go completely but still have sound.

    i have this on my normal tele...
    wii is plugged in. audio comes on one channel.. AV2.. AV3 gets audio and visual... maybe something similar?
    are you connecting a freeview box or something similar to the screen? if yes, maybe try bypassing it and plugging the aerial directly into the tele.

    there are no scart leads its just the plasma and the tuner box they connect together through one cable the tv itself only has to ports one is the wire to the socket other is the one to the tuner box
