    Hi all

    New to these forums, ive registered mainly to find out the answer to the following questions:

    We have Sky, had it about a year, the engineer when he installed it, somehow managed to get the signal from the box, to go up to a booster in the loft, this booster then lets us receive the Sky signal via coaxial in each room upstairs where we have TVs.

    However, we cannot change the channel as the channel is set to whatever is on downstairs.

    He told us that it would be possible to change the channel from upstairs, but didnt say how exactly.. and we think something extra may be required..

    Does anyone know how we can manage to change sky channel from upstairs?

    Also wanted to know a couple of answers to basic questions about Sky+; we have regular Sky - how do we get Sky+? Does it cost extra or do you just have to buy the box? We recommended my sister, and I believe she got her box for free? Can we get recommended, or not, as we are already regular Sky customers?

    Thanks in advance :clap:

    to change the channel you need a sky magic eye, there will be millions on ebay, or try google.

    regarding sky plus, you will need to upgrade and depending on what you go for there will be a £10 monthly subscription.

    Alternatively get sky multiroom and solve both problems in one!!!!

    Or "Sky TV Link" to give it it's proper name.
