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?

You could use any channels above 58. Both of your local transmitters, Black Hill and Craigkelly use channels 55 and 56 for the COM7 and COM8 services. The channels used by them are shown here: Coverage Checker - Detailed View

Hello, I have a sky box in lounge with a feed out of RF2 to the attic, then a dc power pass splitter sending signal to 4 other tv's with magic eyes attached to each. They have been working fine for a year or so but now i cant turn over any of the other tvs, yet the lights are on the magic eyes. Any ideas of what has gone rong
