Hi Ive followed the instructions and now have SKy on my new second Tv which earlier was missing. Thank you for all your help getting me to this stage.The problem now is that the reception on sky on the new second tv is very poor compared with the main set. My difficulty is that the new tv replaced an old one which had a picture as good as the main set, on the same coax in same location. Any ideas please?

Rod: I presume you have the set connected to the box via SCART? Check that the Sky box is in "RGB mode" (not "Composite") from the Picture settings menu, and that the SCART input on the TV can use RGB. Sometimes you find that only one SCART input can.

The main set connects to the sky HD box through HDMI. The RF output to the second set is by coax. There are no scarts

Hi again Briantist. The other thing I failed to mention is that the freeview channels to the second set is perfect using the same coax connection

Rod: Oh right, you didn't mention either of those two rather important facts.
Please can you see the instructions at the top of the to change your RF output number?

Hi again, thank you for being there! Yes I saw that and did that which meant I now receive the SKY chasnnels on channel 68.
I am wondering if I'm wasting your time on this and I wonder what you think of wireles senders so thast I can simply avoid the coax cables around the house because of all of asudden ( since the new second TV with freeview, my other third TV has a wobbly picture too though the main set remains perfect on sky.
Any ideas though, I'm all ears.

Actually what I really don't understand is why I get perfect Freeview pics on main tele and second and third teles but only the main tele has perfect sky. The coax around the house carries all signals from the decoder so why when they all come through the SKY decoder does SKY not travel around the house as well as freeview I wonder?
I think I read earlier that in fact the Freeview to second and third set is actually analogue so is that something important and digital signals are less good on coaxial cables around houe?

Rod: I would expect it is because Freeview is digital and you receive it 100% perfectly or not at all, and the analogue output of the RF ports of the Sky box is, well analogue and will degrade.

What some people might be getting wrong is the use of the sky remote.
Once you have set up the rf outlet, and the red indicator light is on, at the second tv, the Sky+ hd remote must now be used to operate the second tv, and not the normal sky remote that came with the magic eye.
My system works perfectly well.
Hope this helps.
