I've just changed my Sky+ box. I have a magic eye used on another tv in another room which was used on the old box and now its used on the new box.The magic eye works without problem,RF on,red light on can changed channel without problem,and tuned to channel 68.
My problem is the picture quality has on the second TV is absolutely rubbish since changing to the new Sky+ box. Tried fine tuning via the TV controls without success. Any suggestions?

Hi, have just changed old digibox to a fresh digibox, all up and running on main tele but no signal now to tele`s in other rooms. I have followed all your instructions but no success. No signal seems to be coming from rf outlet. Any advice appreciated.

dennis- You may have the remote set to TV mode. Try pressing the Sky button; If OK, try powering off the Sky-box for 30 seconds.

david- The frequency of the new box may differ from the old one,(they default to ch68).

The easiest way is to get a third party to observe one of the TV's in question and keep changing the RF output of the new box until a picture is obtained on the second TV.

Thanks for the reply LutonFan,tried that today with a portable in front of main tele. Signal thru scart to main tele fine but absolutely nothing came up on portable on any frequency. Anything else I can try?.

david- Are you using RF1 out to the main TV? If so and it tunes into the main set OK, remove the RF lead plugged into RF2 out and plug into RF1 out; then retune one of the other sets.

If this tuning is successful, then it could be that the RF2 outlet is faulty. If it is not, then the RF lead you are using from RF2 is faulty.

Hope this makes sense.

LutonFan- Using scart lead from digibox to main tele, scart to portable gives picture so portable doesn`t need tuning, co-ax to extensions was working the day before I switched boxes, tried different co-ax leads to portable but no success, think you are probably right about rf outlet being faulty, unless you can think of anything else.
