    SKY+ Help Please!

    Right, just had my sky+ fitted yesterday. On my original box, i had a lead going out of box, to dish, and then lead returning to my bedroom so i could get same sky channels as downstairs - through the 'eye'
    Anyway, now i cant receive it at all. I remember with my old box having to go in the settings and switching an output to on. I cant find this on my new box.
    Can anyone advise please??!!

    you need to go into installers settings and switch the rf on and input the correct channel e.g 68 - you can find how to do this on the internet. I have done it myself but cant remember what numbers you have to input!!

    Press Services, 4, 0, 1, Select
    This gets you into the Installer Menu
    Then do as above
    Mine is set to
    RF Channel - 38
    RF Power - on
    Save settings.
    Hope this is what you need

    thanks guys - havent got the option 0 - after services, 4. Only have 8 options??

    Just press it in the order above, trust me :thumbsup:
    Might not "be there" but will appear it's a hidden menu

    the trick is to do it by not looking at the screen, just press services 401 without looking at the screen and lo and behold its there!!!

    grr cant get it to work!!!

    Think what Christine said is a good idea.
    Press the buttons as you look at the remote.
    Take your time, you'll soon sort it

    dont look at the screen - just press services - then 401 in succession you will get it - it took me ages !!

    considered that!!!!
    Managed to do it - but picture didnt come through. Now ive looked at back of sky box - and they have put the 2 inputs into dish - nothing in RF out!
    Now i cant get the lead to fit the RF out hole!!!!
    GRRRRRRRR!

    ring sky and get them to get the engineer back - he should have done this for you, I had a replacement box yesterday cos mine was switching off all the time and I told the engineer that I had sky in the kitchen with an eye and he made sure that all the leads and the rf outlet was on. I had this prob before when an engineer installed a new box and when he had gone I couldnt get the kitchen tv to work so I rung them and they sent out another engineer who fixed it for me - the original engineer hadn't put the leads in or put the rf outlet on - worth a phone call!!!

    Calling a Sky Ladder Monkey an " engineer " is an insult to all real engineers.

    Hey guys, quit with the comments.
    Christine was about when no one else was to help Lou.
    Engineer, installer, fitter etc, Christine made her comments to try and help, summat more folks could do around here with always taking the p. Yes, ok Guv, i know you do help, so i take that on board but come on, there's enough folks on here taking up valuable bandwith with nonsense!

    That is the chance you take posting to a public forum. Ppl can reply whatever they like so long as it is within the rules.

    Public Forum, posts were well within the rules.

    Another wannabe Mod???:roll:

    No at all, just think folks were being harsh without reason or actually adding to the thread in anyway. Wannabe mod, yeah would love to be, can't think of out better than trying to keep misc in control :giggle:

    what's wrong with you people!!! only boydent and myself answered lou lou's post - we were both trying to help her - does it really matter whether the Sky guys are called Engineers or not!!! - Get a life will you!!!

    It was after you talked the OP though his/her problem and some ppl decided to mess about on the thread. It is misc and no harm was done. Why keep on moaning?
