Sky upstairs I have a sky box downstairs but would like to also have sky upstairs without paying for another sky box, Is this possible or would it be best to just get a freeview box?

Yes on the back of the box there is a RF2 output...

run a coaxil aerial cable from there to your required TV, you then need to tune the 2nd tv to the sky box.

You can also buy a 'Magic Eye' and a 'extra remote' this will allow you to change channels from the second destination with only 1 digi box.

Down point is that you have to watch the same channel on both tv's.

a second card and box and a dual LNB will allow you to watch seperate channels.

check that you have the sender plugged into the sky box and the receiver into the required tv and not the other way round. The wrong way round still allows the controller to change channels but you will see nothing also ensure that both sender and reciever are on same channel 1 to 4

hi, their is a common fault with certain sky+ boxes and their isnt nothing you can do yourself to solve the problem, you need to contact sky and ask them to reset your box they can do it over the phone so they dont need to come out.
But if after they reset it you still have the problem then they will come out and replace the whole box, if you have had your box for over a year they may tell you your warranty is up and you have to pay for a new box just tell them knowbody told you this and if you had know about this you wouldnt have taken sky out tell them you will cancel your contract if the problem is not put right, after you tell them this they will offer to change the box for free as they make a hell of a lot more money from your subscription than they do from repairs.

Before you do that though check you have enough free room on your hard drive you may need to delete stuff if its nearly full as this could be giving you the problem.

Let me know how you get on or if you need furtther assistance ok

You need an aerial connection between the two units,the aerial will plug into the eye and then the eye into the tv.The cable connects into your sky box in the one marked output 2.You then need to go into service`s on the sky box,select 4,then press 0 1 select,goto rf output and turn on.

Had working sky remote in bedroom, now no remote sky operation from upstairs, is there a secret installer code to switch this function on?


Have you got a magic eye in the bedroom,if so the little red light should be on,if it is not then you are not getting a signal from the main box.You need to check the 2nd rf output is switched on in the main box.

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

Red and white are only Audio ports.

IF there is a scart port plug your av receiver into the scart. Take note on which number your on ie channel there should be several numbers you can choose on your tx/rx then go down stairs to your sky box and ensuring that you are on the same number as the one upstairs.
Then just plug it into the back of your sky Box.. the number on your sender are incase your getting interfearance from other sources in the home. have a play with this and see what works best

Hope this Helps
