    Hi
    Got sky hooked up in bedroom from downstairs but getting a poor pic . Got Sky+ also hooked up ( in the lounge) via rf and this pic is ok. Put a portable directly on the Sky box (RF) and the pic is ok, terrestrial is also ok. Changed the coax yesterday but still no improvement.

    Any ideas!
    :lease:

    Hi
    Left the cable as I bought it at the mo so 25meters. but when I tidy up it won't be much shorter say 20m. The sky+ signal comes from further away but gives a good picture.

    Thanks

    I've seen other people report low signals from the RF2 output on the Sky+ box. You could try changing the RF output channel to a lower one, and if that doesn't work, a booster might help.

    Ok, but already got a booster in. Under pressure from number one son to fix it and from wife not to spend any more money on it. Ho Hum!

    Might have to try another booster. Another trip to B&Q

    Before you rush to B & Q, read this first, particularly the bit in blue at the bottom of the page.
