Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a Sky HD box in my lounge with the RF switched to on I have the correct cable running up to my attic to a global F140 amplifier... The route of the cable takes it to about 40-50 m in length... I cannot get the amplifier to power up off RF2 output!!! Should I use an alternative power supply?

Do you have a separate power supply that you can connect to it to test if it works? If it does it sounds like the length of cable is causing a voltage drop to below what will power the amp.

    Hi thanks for answer.... Amp does work but untill now had no power in attic to power it up apart from feed from RF2 .... Will order separate psu to power up amp then things should work yes?

  • Mark S Smith Nov 11, 2014

    It will rule out if the RF2 power isn't reaching the amp... You can try checking the RF2 power is switched on at the Sky box too. If you have the latest EPG software, press the following buttons to check the RF2... Services 0 0 1 Select 4. This will get you to the RF2 menu. Check the power is on, if not change it and press green to save the change.

SOURCE: Unable to Tune TV to Sky + RF output

Hi.

The problem is that the modulator output frequency of your sky box is exactly the same as for example chanel 5 on your terestrial aerial.
You need to change this number to a different one thats clear of local terestrial transmissions


1) Select the Services button on your Sky or Sky+ remote control.

2) Type in 401 [select] on your key pad and you will get to the installer menu. You cant gain access to this via the drop down menu as it is designed for the Sky Engineer to use.

3)
Select Option 4 to configure the RF outlets on your Sky Digibox.

4) The option RF Chanel Number change this number from example 35 to 60 .
You may need to do this using other numbers 26 34 55 etc
Every time you alter the number store it then try & tune TV to sky.
Any other sets in the house connected by RF leads will require retuning for sky.
Save new settings and you should find that your RF outlet to TV works fine.

SOURCE: TV not finding Digital Channels from Cable Box

We have Comcast and we plugged the cable straight into our Bravia, searched for Digital Channels and it found 131. We actually get all the HD channels that we had using the box, plus a few more. It's worth a try.

Hello,

Most likely the failure of the Screen.

If you purchased the product new, and have the receipt Panasonic will repair it FOC from what I understand, at least 3 years, your TV is no where near that old yet.

If you bought it, but don't have the receipt.....

Hi Jim, your nearly there, all you need to do is go into the tv menu and move from DTV to the old type channel numbers and then find the bit where you can manually tune the tv to channel 68.
Have a sky menu picture running and you will see it come in.

You need to try and isolate the piece of equipment which is causing the problem.

You've already tried the aerial lead direct to the TV and this is OK.

Disconnect all scart leads and try the RF on its own.

Try the Aerial lead to video, then video to TV.

Try aerial direct to Sky box, then to TV.

Try just connecting the RF out from the Sky box to the TV (no aerial input), can you tune into a good channel 68 picture from the Sky box.

Then Try the VCR to the Sky box (no aerial input), see if you can tune into the VCR and Sky channel.
Hope that helps.......

Sky Magic Eye not working over SLX 8 way booster/spliter

arial in booster.
out booster to sky box.
out to tv/etc on first output on sky box.
second out put to spliter linc. ( eg 4 rooms out four way splitter)
each room with sky eye fitted to end of the aerial from number feed from sky box.
with each room with Eye sky can be controlled
also check that RF outlet power supply is set on sky+ or HD in settings menu.
access this.
settings
select ( remote)
type 01 (select on remote)
RF outlets.
RF outlet Power Supply ON
RF channel 25 ( is best for most areas)

I have a sky hd+ box in my lounge and wish to make the sky work in my bedroom, I am happy to only watch what is on the lounge tv in the bedroom (not have multi room) thanks Nigel


Run a coax cable from the sky hd+ box at the rear from the RF2 coax port, and into tv in bedroom.
If you want to change channels, buy a magic eye from eBay for a couple pounds, enter sky settings, and turn power on to the RF2 output. this will supply your coax to bedroom with 9v which will power your magic rye

Sky wired up by a basic splitter in loft want to use red eye.


Your vocabulary is not helping I will make some assumptions.
1 you have an antenna setup and want to have three tvs use it.
2 I don't know what sky is so I am going to ignore it.

from the antenna you will run a short length of rfcoaxial to a splitter\booster witch is powered this will allow you to split the signal to 4 or two or three tvs your choice. all tvs will need coax or rf cable run to them and btw 300 ohm cable is not called rf
coaxial cable is preferred because of its signal insulating properties and its longer life expectancy and all tvs today have coaxial inputs on them not 300 ohm.

I have a tv sky box in lounge and 2nd tv in a different room connected by a co ax cable. I need a desription or a diagram to get everything working. It worked prior to having a new carpet fitted and the...


Check first that the Co-Ax cable is firmly plugged into your SKY box in your lounge.
(I'm assuming that the carpet fitters did NOT put a nail thru your co-ax cable or pushed the cable onto any metal carpet grippers???)
If they might have done this accidentally, then, that's why it doesn't work!
Then make sure that the co-ax cable is plugged firmly into your second TV. Sometimes the central connector within the co-axial socket becomes loose and needs nipping back together with a pair of long-nosed pliers.
I'm assuming that you have plugged the Infra-red remote eye unit back into the second TV aerial socket - before you plugged the co-ax cable back in?
If you have, press the SKY remote to see if the Infra-red LED can be seen in the remote pod.
Finally, make sure that you have selected the correct channel number (or Input) on your second TV remote to select SKY.

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

Dvd player not connected properly to TV?


You might need one or both of:

RF modulator.
AV switch (perhaps from an old video game console)

The modulator accepts the RCA plugs from your DVD player (yellow, white, red) and outputs an RF signal.

You can then plug the ouput of the modulator into the aerial input of the skybox, via the switch, if desired.

make sure the rf is set to on
Remember the channel rf number,

go to your television the link is to.
go to menu then setup and then manual tune
select the channel you want to view sky on. normally channel 6 on your analogue
then go to Channel type in whatever the rf setting was on your main sky box then press save.

that is your telly sorted out. if you have a magic eye connected at the link end you should see a red led light lit up.
if not remove the magic eye and connect it straight into the back of your sky box RF2
just to make sure that the eye is not at fault.

hope this helps
ill check in a day or two to see if you need more help.
