sky link in other room stopped working any ideas?

Found 1st Jun 2008
We have just had our sky+ box replaced as it was broken (an Amstrad so not a surprise). However it is linked to our bedroom and we can no longer control the box from upstairs though we can see the picture.

We have checkd the magic eye and it doesn't seem to be that. My husband thinks all the cables are in the right place downstairs. Has anyone got any ideas what may have been connected differently this time or what may have changed with the box to stop in working. Thanks. Fairy.

Is the new box not an Amstrad? And if not is the upstairs remote set to the new box?

right - review that comment

the downstairs remote that works the downstairs sky+ box does not work the sky+box up here via the magic eye. Any thoughts?

go down to RF outlets and make sure the rf outlet power supply is on.

Mine has a channel number of 68, I don't know if they are all the same.

Did that fix your problem Fairy ??
