Glad you got some service. However, Channel 68 is very likely to suffer from interference later as it is in the range used now and in the future for 4G and maybe 5G mobile serices, so it is best to avoid anything above channel 60. It is also wise to avoid any of the channels used by transmitters whose signals may reach your location. That is why I suggested using channel 34 as none of the transmitters in your area use that channel.

As I stated, it is better to use an HDMI lead if at all possible, else use a SCART lead if the TV and Sky box do not have HDMI sockets.

Why did you connect the I/O modulator to an RF output? That output is meant to be connected via coaxial cable to a TV set/STB.

Does removing the modulator restore the services?
