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.

I have a Panasonic tv model TH 42PZ80B; a Panasinic Blu-Ray dvd model DMP-BD50; a sky box (not as yet HD) and a Sony video SLV-SE 830G. I have a Satellite dish and a normal TV aerial. In the loft I have a...


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.......

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

Have lost the link from sky+ to a second tv which was tuned to sky via channel 5 and majic eye on annolog since re tuning i cannot receive sky on second tv


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.
