Hi
I have installed a amplifier via a IO link to give me controllable Sky in a further 4 rooms plus my original TV and although all TVs work plus magic eyes the picture is poor especially on the furthest TV.
Is there any way to boost to a better picture or is it simply a matter of changing RF channel which at the moment is 68 to eliminate any interference.

Les Anderson: UHF channel 68 is in the 800MHz band which is now used for 4G mobile broadband services. You would be better off finding a clear channel below 60 (please provide a full postcode so that we can see which transmitters are available at your location and identify a channel not likely to be in use).

Les Anderson: Going by the Digital UK postcode checker, UHF channel 22 should be fairly clear at your location, both now and following the completion of the 700MHz clearance program.

Wendy Waugh:

Looking at the currently used channels in your area and those predicted for use in the foreseeable future, I would suggest trying setting your Sky box' RF output to channel 34 and then tuning your TV to that (it would avoid any potential interference with other signals). However, it would be better to use an HDMI lead, if your TV and Sky box have that faciltity. If they dont, then could you use a SCART lead, the one that uses 21 pins to feed the signals. That way, you don't need to use the RF output and would get a better quality of picture and sound. If you can use the HDMI lead, then you could even watch the HD versions if your TV set is capable of showing them. A Freeview HD equiped TV set would be able to show them - the HD images are substantially clearer than SD.

Wendy Waugh: thank you very much Mike P.
We managed to tune to channel 68 for now but will definitely do as you suggest for the future,
