Hi Brian,

Thanks for your post. TV is set to analogue and I have tried manual and autotuning on analogue settings. There is no conflict with Ch68 and I have also altered the analogue output channel on the Sky box to no avail. I have also re-terminated the co-ax plugs on both ends of the cable run. TV still says no signal. I think the Sky box must be duff? Anyone agree?

Hi,

We are living in Ireland, have sky + box(we do not use the phone line) & Eircom broadband. When the wireless broadband and the sky box are on the wireless does not work but when I switch off the sky the wireless works fine. Have changed the frequency on the broadband to no avail.I see that I can change the frequency on the sky box but dont want to make too many changes. Any other sugestions???
Thank you

Polly

Hello Brian,

Thanks for the reply, the wireless is not up when the sky box is on, we tried in the opposite end of the house by moving the modem and if my memory serves me correctly it worked ok.


Do you have an idea of what the issue is?

Thanks

Polly

Polly: It is not really advisable to put a wireless router device near another source of RF, even if the frequency used are totally different.

Polly: I would say "as far as possible", but a least a few meters will probably be enough.

PeteG: Yes, Freeview signals can be carried on the same cable as the analogue output from a Sky box.
