If you have a HD box, press [SERVICES] button and then press [0] [0] [1] then [SELECT]. Nothing is shown on the TV screen until you press the Select button.

Alison: Put your SkyHD box on, showing a programme. Then on the SkyHD remote press "Services" then "0" then "0" then "1" then "Select". This will bring up the installer menu.
The RF Outlets tab will show the UHF channel in use (default is 68), and whether the RF2 9V power is ON or OFF.
Some distribution amplifiers use the 9V power from the RF2 socket to operate, so try turning that ON and see if you have any more luck. Remember to save any changes you make (green button).
You'll know from the SkyHD box which analogue UHF channel to look for on the other TV sets.

Hi and thank you all. I finally did get there....the RF output wasn't on but even then, I eventually had to change the channel from 68 to 60. After that, I scanned and found sky on all tv's. Phew! Thank you again.

scott - you have A pic but it is not right?

How not right? Do you have sound?

Are you sure your upstairs TV is tuned to the correct channel?

sharon burrows: If this posting is a continuation of your previous request for info regarding the magic eye made under another heading, then if you have switched the Sky boxes RF2 power on as per instructions given, then you simply carry out a scan on the TV in the other room until you see the same as is on your Sky box, making sure that before scanning that the TV is set on "analogue" and not digital or it wont pick the Sky box up.

Hi, hope someone can help with this. Up until yesterday we had a sky+ box in one room and an old (over 5 years) standard sky box in the lounge.

On the old lounge box, we used a digital sender with a little transmitter 'thingy' which we placed over the light on the front of the box, to sent sky upstairs to one of the bedrooms.

This worked great until yesterday when we had new boxes fitted by Sky. The digital sender still sends pictures and sound upstairs, but the sky remote upstairs will no longer change channel. Also we have to keep the tv in the lounge on all the time or we don't get anything on the upstairs tv.

Does anyone have any ideas please. I have a teenage son who's done nothing but whitter all day!!

1) Children should not have TVs in their bedrooms.

2) Tell Sky to return and make it work at least as well as it did before they called

3) You will have been provided with Instructional Manuals. Tell son to read them and sort it out. Say "RTFM" It will amuse him.

4) As a slightly perhaps bettter answer; either

a)the new boxes do not provide the functionality you seek, or
b)something needs switchiong on - try the "Services" menu, or
c)someting loose. Wiggle connections.

ha-ha Steve, although the wiggle suggestion has possibilities.

I'll have a look at the services menu tomorrow and then give the sky fitter a buzz if that doesn't work.

Thanks
