Sky is saying there is no signal. Turn box off and on again. I have done this but still get no signal. I have freeview only channels on my sky box


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

I have a samsung42 inch flat screen and a dvd and a sky plus box and avhs recorder could show me how to do the set up connections please


If you have a blueray or HD DVD player I would connect using a gold plated HDMI cable from the TV to the DVD, make sure that you buy the correct HDMI version for your TV. If you don't have a HS DVD player recorder then use a HQ SCART as below.

Most SKY+ boxes still have a SCART connection I suggest that you buy a HQ gold plated ribbon connector to connect the SKY to one of your AV (audio visual) channels. The benefit of using SCART is that it will autoselect the AV channel when SKY is taken out of standby.

You will not need to connect using co-axial cables these are pretty much redundant now as you can get all your channels through your SKY dish.

Also if you live in a poor reception area and your TV has freeview built in SKY is your better option.

Conect sky remote to sky+ box


Hello Jolene725,

If you are using a standard remote / HD remote for a sky + then you will have to press the following buttons:
TV
SELECT + i (flashes twice)
1
SELECT

You now should be able to use the standard remote with the Sky+ box.
Just bare in mind that using the standard remote you dont have the buttons to pause, record, etc.

Hope this has helped you out. If so then please leave a thumbs up

I am having problem with sky standard box that shows message ''no satelite signal is being received'' for all channels


There are several things this could be.

1) your dish may have been moved/knocked. this could be weather, kids football and most common WINDOW CLEANERS.

2) The F connector (the end that screws into your sky box. I would check this has not came out or the ends not falling off the cable.
You can unscrew these by hand. what you are then looking for is that none of the outer braid is touching the centre core. If this all looks good then screw the end back onto the cable.

3) If your sky box is Old. the tuner in the box eventually pack up. So this would mean that you would have to get a new box.
There are a lot of people upgrading there sky systems. So rather then pay for another box you could always go down the club and ask your pals if they have there old box before they upgraded.

Hope this Helps

Hi there, I live in a apartment on the side of my bosses house & he has 2 sky boxes, his is sky plus & mine is a normal box. Their both run off the same contract not separate. But when my boss...


if it is the same as directv - you used a splitter on the cable between the 2 boxes - you need to us a multi switch - or dual lnb

fyi - the boxes change channels by varying the voltage to the dish - if 2 boxes are giving different voltages it does not work
thanks
