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 wires were removed. Cuirrently the tv is connected to the sky box via hdmi cable. Everything in the lounge works, but I cannot get the signal to the 2nd tv. Previously this was done be routing the co ax into a splitter. I don't know what I am doing wrong

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.

I cant view my sky channel on my tv


So you want to view your sky TV in a different room?
You can achieve this a number of ways.

Purchase the multi-room package from Sky TV. This will give you fully independent TV reception in each room. (Basically two sky boxes)

Purchase a TV sender which will wirelessly duplicate the output on the TV to another device.

Connect your Sky box to a second TV with high-quality co-axial aerial cable connected to the RF2 output on the back of the Sky box.

How do I get sky from my set top box to work in a different room, I am trying to get my sky to work on a TV in a different room ? I have wired up TV coax cable from my sky box in sitting room and run


Hi Jim,
Here In my place in India, you can attach only one tv to the sky set top box.That too with AV cables. The program or channel changing is done by box only. The tv works as a monitor and has no role in program selection. You can attach a second tv to the box not through antenna cable but through AV cables only. That too if the box is having second set of output sockets. In that case both the TVs will receive the same programmes. To watch different programmes on the second tv you will have to go for an additional box.

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.

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

Loosing digital channels is equivlent to a snowy analog channel, check you cable connections, and splitters to the tv, since you have two of them out, it does not make sense that it is your tv. It is a conneciton in your cable line somewhere.

Hi Martin,

A wiring Schematic is not that you should be looking. What you need is large feeders to understand hot to connect to various ports to give your desired output.

Is there such a thing as a co-ax cable to input converters?


Before you go that far, realize that the cable itself may be the problem. Usually poor picture quality can be traced to poor cable connections. Also, another possibility is poor connections inside the tuner of the set. I assume that you are using a cable box. Some of the newer boxes have direct video connections which will connect as you describe. Check the condition of all of the cables and connectors before yo invest in anything.

Keep us posted.
