A by-product of the DSO. Many Sky customers may have a few problems following DSO.
Sky set top boxes, for years, have provided a secondary RF Analogue outlet, for redistribution around the house. They have frequently defaulted an output at Ch38/9 or Ch68. The Analogue outlet also provided back fed remote control. Now that Ch60-69 are being cleared for G4 phone services and the channels around 38/39 for some other services, cant remember what? With digital transmissions popping up all over the bands many legacy Sky systems could be in trouble. Any Thoughts?
Cant imagine Sky caring too much, I doubt if Sky boxes will output a Digital Signal in its own Multiplex. Sky will hope to sell more Multi Room installations at £10 a month I guess.
My own not inexpensive solution was an HMDI distribution amp.

Now the DSO is complete can anybody recommend the best channel to use for 'V+ rf out' in the Thorpe st Andrew area. I'm using CH68 at the minute but the picture quality isn't the best!

David: Not sure what V+ rf out means. I guess you refer to an analogue signal from a set top box, Recorder, Sky+/Hd whatever.
Ch68 will be in the domain of G4 mobile phone signals, one day! So try Ch38
