SOURCE: I NEED THE CODE FOR ALBA TV MODEL NO. ALCD15TV8M

There are two code types for sky remotes, Brand Codes & Direct Codes.

The codes for Alba are:

Brand - 0043

Direct - 037, 065, 246, 399, 263, 064, 446

There is a small difference in the way they are set.

To program using the 3 digit code - Direct Code
1) Switch on the TV set
2) Press the TV button on the Sky Remote
3) Hold down the select and red buttons for 2-3 seconds until the LED blinks twice
4) Enter the 3 digit code
5) Press the select button to store
Press TV and any number to test, If this does not operate the TV set try below.

To program using the 4 digit code - Brand Code
1) Switch on the TV set
2) Press the TV button on the Sky Remote
3) Hold down the select and red buttons for 2-3 seconds until the LED blinks twice
4) Press the TV button on the Sky Remote again
5) Enter the 4 digit code for your make of TV
6) The LED should blink twice, if not recheck the 4 digit code used and go back to 1
7) Press the standby button on the Sky Remote (The TV should go to standby)
8) Press select to store this setting
If the TV does not go into standby press the TV button then the standby button, then TV then standby, keep repeating this until successful. This will scan the codes used for a particular make of TV.

SOURCE: technika tv lcd 19-907 tuning in to sky in bedroom.

Hi i had the same problem but i have sorted mine now. What i was doing wrong was i wasnt tuning in the analoge channels only the freeview digital ones. To do this you need to first turn your tv on. Then press the "source" button, this will bring up a little menu at the top left hand side. When this menu comes up press the "Programme +" button (the one that you use for changing channels near the volume button) press this until you get up to "TV", when T.V is highlighted just wait 3 secs and it will switch over. You will probably get a blue screen with a no signal message (you are now on analogue) when you get this blue screen press the "tune" button. It will automatically start tuning in all of your channels, at first they will be fuzzy but as it works they will become clearer. Your sky channel will also be tuned in. When mine tuned in it didnt tune them in on the right numbers though, bbc2 was on number 1 etc. If you ever need to use a playstation or something it goes into the scart connection at the side of the t.v and you need to press "source" and go up to "scart". To get back onto the digital channels just press "dtv/dvd".
hope i helped!

SOURCE: Stopped receiving sky on second tv - does my samsung need a reset

I install a lot of magic eyes etc.

You have checked that the magic eye lights up when it is connected directly into the sky box. So your eye is working correctly.

the next step I would take is with your sky remote in your main room. press SERVICES, 4, 0,1, SELECT go to RF settings and check the rf channel and make sure the power is on. Take a mental note of the channel number.

Now go into the room where the link is feeding. Turn on the TV and go to channel number 6 press your MENU button and then go down to setup. go across to manual install and then down to the channel number type in what you retrieved from you box ie rf channel and then type it in and STORE.

If you go into your main room and just put the normal tv guide on ie blue screen. then check that your getting the sky into the other room. IF you are then great it just needed tuning in. IF not I would remake the coax connectors. as there may be a bit of copper braid touching the centre core. once this is done your sky should be on all you need to do now is put the eye back on. Once you have done this the red light should appear on your magic eye. if not go to your main box and follow the first instructions I gave you and turn the power off on the RF and then save and then go back in and turn it back on and save.

Hope this sorts out your problem

Cheers

SOURCE: have lost the link from sky+ to a second tv which

Hello K Agate,

In the main room where the Sky + is locate. With the sky remote press the following.

Services.
4
0,1,select
4 (rf)

Ensure that the RF power to set to on, and take a mental note of the channel number the RF is set to. I normally set this to 38 it is upto you.

Now check that the coax lead that links the sky+ box to the 2nd room is plugged into RF out 2 on the back of the sky+ box.

Now go into the other room and make sure that there is a red LED light on your magic eye. If there is then great. If not there may be a fault with you eye. A good way to check this would be to connect it straight into the back of you Sky+ RF OUT 2 port. This would also check to see if there is any fault with the coax cable feeding the other room.

Assuming that there is a Red LED light on the eye when its plugged into the back of the TV in the other room (not the one with the sky box in), This means that there is power getting to it from the Sky + box.
Put your sky box on the TV GUIDE screen. This will make tuning it in a lot easier.

in the other room with your tv remote press the following
Channel 6 or which ever number you want it on.(analogue)
then MENU on the remote.
Go to MANUAL STORE
Then if you go down to where it give you a C ** number just type in what you retrieved from the sky RF menu.
That should bring your sky up then all you need to do now is STORE.
That should be you all sorted out now.

Hope all goes well. If so then please leave a Thumbs up

Cheers Little Dish Fitter.

SKY DIGIBOX 2nd RF frequency


your in luck, I work for sky as an Engineer.

Firstly go to the main telly where your sky box is.

Using the sky remote press the following buttons.
SERVICES
4
0,1,SELECT
go to RF
In this menu I would set the RF channel to 38 and turn the power ON and then down to save.

now leave it on the blue menu screen (sky menu)

go to the other room where you link from your sky box is connected to.
press the tv button on that remote and then select channel 6 on the remote

Then go into the menu for the tv and then to setup. go to MANUAL TUNE/SEARCH with most new tv you can scroll down to were it says C _ _ you can then input your channel number as 38 the same as you setup on your sky box.

Dont forget to save the settings and that should be you. You should be able to see the sky menu on the telly with the link on. (that is why I asked you to leave the sky menu on that way you know you havent just tuned it into your normal terrestrial channels.

The reason I told you to turn the power onto the link was so that you can purchase a Magic eye. This will allow you to turn your sky box over from the 2nd room without having to keeping going to the main tv to change over.

here is a link to a random site with a picture of a magic eye on. you can purchase these from many places or even Ebay. here is the link anyway.

Hi, i have just bought a logik wireless av sender so send my sky signal to the tv in the bedroom. the instructions in the manual are very basic and i cant get it to work. any ideas. on the tv in the...


Red and white are only Audio ports.

IF there is a scart port plug your av receiver into the scart. Take note on which number your on ie channel there should be several numbers you can choose on your tx/rx then go down stairs to your sky box and ensuring that you are on the same number as the one upstairs.
Then just plug it into the back of your sky Box.. the number on your sender are incase your getting interfearance from other sources in the home. have a play with this and see what works best

Hope this Helps

LE40R74BDX HDMI input stopped working


I work for sky as an engineer (not a subby)

HDCP is the encryption that is sent down when a program is transmitted. I have had this several times over the years and have found out that you need go to the manufactors web site or call them to update your telly this will sort out this problem.
I would do this sooner then later... reason I am telly you this is sky have take the Component inputs off all the sky boxes now.... The box you have is a THOMSON (have a look.... make you smile)lol this was due to people connecting there sky HD box to there pc via Component and using programs like Copy+ and extract + to copy the content.

If your box breaks down. then you are snookered if you telly is not going to accept the skyHD through a HDMI connection.

Hope this helps

Ive just moved to a house with sky all ready and have not got a clue how to set the thing up. I have a 50in PS-50Q96HD Samsung HDTV Plasma. I have the sky cable and the normal tv cable, what goes were...


first of all you would need to have a Sky HD set top box.

The cables coming into the wall.. you said one was the terrestrial aerial and the other was a sky cable. In order for you to benefit from Sky HD you would need twin cable or two single cable running from your sky dish.(allows you to record a program and watch another etc.

summary:
skyHD box
two feeds coming from your dish,
there is only one place these can go as they are screw on ie F connectors. so they would screw onto input 1 and 2 on the back of the Hd box.
Run a HDMI cable from the back of the sky box from the HDMI port to one of the HDMI ports on the back of your telly. last but not least you would need to get a power cable (kettle plug) to power the thing.

In regards to your terrestrial aerial you can plug this directly into your telly or via your aerial in port on the back of the skyHD box. then you would have to run an aerial cable from the RF out 1 or 2 to the back of your telly this would allow you to record two things on your Sky HD box then switch to your built in freeview that your telly has.

Hope this has answered your questions

Cheers

Sky upstairs


Yes on the back of the box there is a RF2 output...

run a coaxil aerial cable from there to your required TV, you then need to tune the 2nd tv to the sky box.

You can also buy a 'Magic Eye' and a 'extra remote' this will allow you to change channels from the second destination with only 1 digi box.

Down point is that you have to watch the same channel on both tv's.

a second card and box and a dual LNB will allow you to watch seperate channels.
