Usually you have to go to chanel setup and scroll down to DTV setup up or DTV auto tuning and click on the remotes enter button and choose to scan for the Digital channels (DTV) Then tell your boyfriend that they don't broadcast in analogue anymore.
If I understand your problem the Y splitter is a passive splitter which mean that the centre pins are connected via capacitors this will degrade the picture on one or both outlets, the Sky box should be connected via a scart or HDMI connection
Is this a newly installed system? If both tv's are responding to the same remote setting (red in case), it means both tv's are set to the same channel. The tv that is connected to the decoder directly (via AV cables, I presume) is supposed to respond to if the remote is set to red. In order for the second tv to respond when the remote is set to blue, you need to tune the second tv until you find the picture of tv2 (the decoder transmits both tv1 and tv2 on the RF/coaxial output and it seems that your remote tv is tuned to tv1 instead of tv2).
The remotes for the TV and Direct TV box are universal remotes that can operate very basic functions for whatever else they are programmed to control. If you can program the TVs remote to operate the Direct TV box it will basically only control power and channel. Maybe something else, but not much. The same goes for the Direct TV remote. It will control basic functions on the TV; power, channel & volume. Best bet would be to purchase a universal remote that can learn functions from the original or just keep both remotes available by the TV.
PIP (Picture In Picture) - Your television should have the capability because it has two built in tuners. It can show two channels at the same time or show one channel and one video source (whatever is connected to the audio/video inputs). However, because you are using DTV (Direct TV) you are very limited because you are not using the built in tuners on your television. You should be able to see one picture from the DTV channel and one from lets say your DVD player. If your DTV box has two tuners built in then you should have the PIP capabilities from your DTV and not your television. I'm guessing your DTV is a single tuner (one satellite cable to your box). If you want to watch two different channels you'll need to either upgrade your box or attach another box to your television.
Option: you could also connect an antenna to your television this way you can use the PIP function. Obviously you'll only be able to view whatever local stations you can get with the antenna. Depending on where you live you might or might not have a lot of channels to choose from.
Unplug the aerial; switch the PVR On; if you have control via the remote do a reset to default settings thus:
1. press Menu on the remote
2. select Installation and enter default password of 0000 unless you have changed it
3. select Default settings and okay on YES
4. then turn if off again via the remote
5. plug the aerial back in and it will scan for channels, save them of course.
I got help on this from other forums but saw your request for help. This worked for me.
first have the video recorder connected to the tv correctly,either coax out, red.white,yellow out, componant out or hdmi.[ see on back of the unit & the tv which connection you used.input selector is also known as video/source/line in or aux, sometimes even game. if there no such button on your remote, scroll down from channel 2 and you should be in some aux input.have the dvd playing,then you should see the video when you get to the right input.
you can play your PS2 via the RF in (ANT IN ) at the back of your TV .
For this you will first have to connect a AUX to RF converter jack device to ANT IN jack of TV.
Then determine the OUTPUT CHANNEL of the PS2.
(Channels-1 to 12 is in VHF band
channels-21 to 69 -UHF band)
Put the PS2 "ON"
TUNE the TV set to the frequency of PS2.
