What is happening is that the "pace" box is forgetting everything that you programmed into it every day.

The reason that happens is because when you shut off the "mains" every night the "pace" loses it's memory. You might check to see if your box has a place to put a battery in it. That battery "back up" would keep the memory intact until the battery expires. It only draws a tiny bit of current but you are correct in assuming that it never really shuts off unless you shut off the "mains"

Hi,

Always turn on your TV with the Sky box (or any other external device you want to use) turned OFF. When the TV is on, turn on the Sky box by pressing the "Sky" button at the top centre of the remote control. This will ensure that the TV recognises that there is an external input and it will automatically switch to the correct channel. It also ensures that your Sky remote control isn't in TV mode.

If you switch your TV to standby using the Sky remote after watching, the next time you use the Sky remote, it's still in TV mode. This is why your TV channels are jumping around.

Hope this helps.

Hi, i have a pace sky digibox box switching itself off


Well every time you switch off the power the digibox returns to the factory default settings. The power must be maintained to keep those settings. There may be another brand that has battery back up to maintain the selected channels. Check with your owners manual to see if yours does have that feature. It continues to draw a very tiny current as long as it is plugged into power. There is no solution except a battery back up or leave it plugged in all the time.

Channel Four is available on Freesat as follows:
Channel 4 Freq 10729 Vertical 22000 5/6 -
Enter these figures on your 'Search for Channels' menu, and it should turn up Channel Four.

Panasonic TX P50V10B Plasma TV


In order to get any of the Freesat channels, you need to connect a Satellite dish to your TV. If you have a Sky dish, you simply need to run an extra Cable from the LNB from the dish and connect to your socket on the back of your TV.
In order to get Freeview channels and Analogue channels, you need to connect a aerial to the back of the TV.
There is a menu option for the TV to start straight to the AV input (your Sky HD box). It is Menu > Setup > Other Settings > Power on Preference. Select 'AV' for your TV to start on Sky HD.
Also even if you have your TV to start on TV, when you turn on your Sky HD box, it should automatically switch to the Sky box.

Yes you can split the signal out from the back of the Freesat/HD (not the TV)to the second TV.
Look what outputs are on the Freesat box - the RF (standard cable) output should go to the 2nd TV (TV set to CH3) and the a/v cables,HDMI or DVI cable should go to the new TV - Note:To receive HD the output from the Freesat should be either HDMI,DVI or Composite output (RGB video jacks) with red White for audio. If you have HDMI this is best - it also provides audio.

Record and watch different channels with freesat


I believe that the Humax can only output 1 channel and because it has no built in hdd and twin channel capabilty that is all you can record 1 channel (unlike sky +/sky HD) so that means also that unless you watch a different source (like the picture from your aerial (terrestial channels)) you are stuck with having to watch the channel you record

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.
