Two telephone mastersockets?

Can you have two telephone mastersockets coming off one Telephone cable?
BT have recently replaced the cable from the pole to the house. Its connected to the old cable via a ''wee box'' which sits under the kitchen window. Hubby's just signed up for the Sky+ HD self installation and we now need a telephone connection. Just put wooden floors down everywhere so don't want to have cables lying around. Was going to connect a second mastersocket to the ''wee box'' outside the house and run the cable round the outside of the house but don't know if you can have two of these mastersockets on the same line.

First things first.

You want to drag the phone line around for the Sky+ HD connection?

Unless you use Sky Box office or other Sky online services you don't need to hook a telephone cable up to ANY Sky set top boxes.
The telephone cable is a means for Sky to monitor your box position and monitor your viewing choices.

If however you do use Sky's online services you "can" connect another line to you main line. Just make sure you connect the correct coloured cables to the correct pins in your sockets.

Further note...

For a Sky+ connection you need to coaxial cables coming off your satelite dish. Incase you didn't already know this.

The caller id on my bt 7600 is not working


Hello friend,

I cannot find the user guide for this particular phone, but from other BT phones it appears you do not have to do anything !!!! It should automatically show the number IF it is sent by your Telephone Company.

DO NOT forget, that you MUST get your Telephone Service Provider to 'enable' Caller ID on your telephone line.(This normally costs about a Pound a month). or the numbers will not show.

Why my HP 640 Fax will not receive a fax?


Your firstly need to put your hp fax machine through the machines fax diagnostics found under the tools menu. This will hopefully identify any obvious problems.
You need to ensure that you have the correct cable from your telephone socket to the fax machine. It should be a BT Plug to RJ11 Crossover telephone cable in the U.K. This cable reverses the polarity of the terminals and will look identical to other terminals but is not.
Available from cabling for less Item Code BT-203X Price 3.28 plus vat and postage.
Ask your telephone line provider to check there is no noise in the background as fax machines sender and fax machiine receiver are like birds in love. They sing to each other before the receiving machine recognises the sending machine and accepts the message.
If you require any further assistance then please do not hesitate to contact me.

BT Studio 3500, Base station, flashing telephone. Base staion handset, flashing message icon 2nd handset, flashing telephone and handset. Why the flashing and how do I cancel all the flashing.


eventually contacted the BT team via telephone and apparently this is a common problem when using BT products with Talktalk & Virgin. To overcome this in the majority of cases, dial 1571 and connect to your voicemail, listen to the options and finally delete all messages. Hope this can be added to your list of solutions.
