And one more awesome thing? Now you can also enjoy your TATA Sky on your computer monitor. All it takes is the little knowable about ports which btw you’ll learn today.

So let’s get moving.

1. Use the HDMI port of your computer monitor

If your monitor has HDMI port, which most of the modern monitors do, then you have unlocked the easiest way to connect your TATA sky to the computer monitor.

The HDMI port looks like this.

If you have the HD connection of TATA Sky, then this same port will also be present on the back of your set-top box.

But don’t worry if you have a standard Set-top box. I have a trick for you.

A standard box has an audio-video port (Yellow-White-Red). Can you locate it on your STB?

It looks like this one.

In this case, you will need a 3RCA to HDMI converter cable to connect the set-top box to your HDMI monitor.

Now, if you have an HD Set-top box, then, as you know, the box will have the HDMI port. Just get yourself an HDMI to VGA converter and connect them.

When I am connected to HDMI to vga connector it shows message on monitor display port or vga port inactive.what is the solution.

I think you most probably have not connected it properly. Please make sure both ends are well connected and not lose. If it still shows then most likely the connective cable has issue.


Most likely a resolution error. Try changing the monitor resolution from in-built buttons. If the problem persists, then also test refresh/frequency rate. One of these is causing the issue. Please do share monitor model no.

I’ve connected my AOC monitor to the Tata Sky HD STB by purchasing a HDMI to VGA converter. But I get the following message – INPUT NOT SUPPORT. Please help…!!!

It seems to be another case of resolution. Change the resolution from physical buttons on your monitor. Or connect CPU and choose resolution settings from the right click of the mouse. Tata Sky supports 1080p and lower value so adjust the monitor to something like that.

I reduced the resolution to even 800 x 600, but it didn’t help. Still getting the same error.

You have to match the resolution that your STB sending to the resolution of the monitor. Please share the exact model no. so I can help you better.

Here’s what you do:

1. Connect your STB back to your TV.
2. Go to Settings>User Setting>HD setting> change resolution to 720@60Hz & save it. Check this

3. Change the monitor resolution back to 1366 x 768p 60Hz & save.

4. Connect STB to monitor properly. Make sure there’s green light on STB & not red.

( you will need external speaker for audio)
5. Enjoy!

Thank you so much. The reason I want to connect my monitor is because my TV is given for repairs.

Okay. But you will need a tv to change your box settings. Try with friends TV maybe! You don’t need dish signals to change settings BTW. Glad to help! 🙂

Thanks a lot. It worked. But only 75% of the monitor screen is active.

And I need to connect to speakers for sound. Thanks once again.

Adjust your monitor and STB resolution to match. Set them both at 720p and 60Hz.
