SOURCE: Sky is saying there is

Hi,

Firstly, you don't get Freeview through your Sky box. If you are watching Freeview channels then it's from an aerial connection. If you are getting a 'No signal' message on your TV, the first things to check are:

1. Check that you have selected the correct input source on your TV. If you are using a 'co-ax' connection (standard aerial cable) you will have to select this manually from the remote. If you are using a SCART connection, all you need to do is turn the Sky box off and back on - but you've done this already.
2. Check the connection from your Sky box to your TV - disconnect it, check that the cable and connectors aren't damaged then re-connect it.
3. Check the cable between the dish and the Sky box. Unplug this from the Sky box and reconnect it.
4. Check that your viewing card is correctly inserted. This is unlikely to be the problem as it doesn't usually result in a 'no signal' message, but remove it and re-insert it anyway.

Finally, it's very windy tonight and this can affect the Sky signal if your Sky dish isn't properly secured. It's possible that your dish has been moved by the wind and is no longer aligned with the satellite. If none of the above work, you should inspect the dish as soon as conditions are safe enough to do so. If you can move it by hand, it can probably be moved by the wind.

Try these tests and post back and I will try to assist further if the problem has not been resolved.

Regards,
BElectric

SOURCE: sky box is stuck on channel 356 and only goes back to 3 dashes and no signal

Try to unplug the box for a while and then power it back up so it can attempt to reboot---failing there contact the provider and or replace the box.

Tip

Watch your SKY channels on a second TV with Magic Eye and remote


If you have Sky Multi-room this will feed a separate SKY signal from your LNB on your dish to a second SKY box if you have the basic this will not cost you anything you still need a card inserted in the front to make this work. I think it costs £5 extra for more channels.

So if you have SKY + you will have 3 coaxial cables coming out of your LNB. ( 2 for the SKY + and 1 for the Multiroom )

To ger the signal for free the easy way is to connect a coaxial cable from the RF2 output on the back of the SKY ot SKY+ box into another TV and use a SKY Magic Eye these cost about £5 and have a range of about 20 meters. You can use a coaxial splitter to feed two TV but you will loose more signal the more you connect.

You will need to turn this function on using the hidden menu to allow you to use the Sky Remote control then LED on the unit will show you that there is a signal.

Press <SERVICES> <4> <0> <1> <SELECT> and goto the RF2 output to turn the signal on you might find that this signal is already turned ON for you.

Note: If you are using a multiplex faceplate unit this signal will not work as it relies on continuity of the coaxial cable with a 12V DC signal being sent out of the back of the SKY Box.

For all setups changing you Box model or adding an extra box SKY must to this for you by having your phone line connected so they can reprogram your Smart Card.

Just installed a sky magic eye to my digital tv upstairs, works perfect. however I have now lost all my digital channels!!


Hi

If you have installed a sky magic eye, i am assuming you have taken a sky feed from the RF outlet of the back of the sky box to view sky in another room, if this is the case, this is an analogue feed which you would have to tune in manually to the second tv, this would suggest that you havent lost the digital signal you just have you second tv selected on analogue. On the assumption your system is connected like the following;

Sky box connections

Main aerial input
sky sat input
rf out to second tv

Got sky installed today only thing getting on screen is "no video signal"


Sounds like the "channel" you are trying to watch on is not the one it's plugged into, or a faulty lead.
check the connection from the sky box to the tv, and select the av or hdmi channel that it is plugged into on the tv.
check the lead by swapping it for a known good one, for example from a dvd or ps3, but unplug from the dvd/ps3 and plug into the sky box(make sure that all the units are powered off when swapping leads) and try on the channel you normally watch/use the dvd/ps3.
If you suspect the sky is at fault, press menu on the sky remote and then flick through all the av/hdmi channels until you find the menu, then try to reinstall/retune the sky box.
If that don't work phone sky......................

Most equipment that is common to everyone has a menu to change the remote address. This is different from the code. I'm not familular with your spacific box, so this might not avalible for you in which case stand outside you neighbors house and change their channel. Wait to see what they do. This may be cheaper if you can't just change the address. Haha

Tuning to pick up sky feed


Sounds like from discription the sky feed is set up for analog channel 6. With my TV-HVR-1600 card, there is an option in the wintv application when you click the menu button in the application that says channel suite. If you select this option, you should find and option for analog source. Select analog source in this screen and you should be able to manually add channel 6 in the box at the top of the analog souce screen. Also if you have the sky feed connected and you you click the scan button on this screen, it should detect automatically is the sky feed is on.

Polaroid FLU-2632 channel searching


Often when using a Sky box, one doesn't use the channel tuning feature of the Polaroid HDTV. Often one connects the Sky box to a component video input, and the Sky box does the tuning.

I hope that helps.
