    not sure this is the right section but a know loads of PJ owners have these.

    mods feel free to move to relevant section

    I have an LCD monitor and a prov + in my kitchen, i have run the output of RF2 from the sky digi box into the prov. but i cant tune in sky. if arial is plugged in i get all terstrial chanels but NO sky. is it a limitation of the prov or do i have to do something on the sky box.

    bear in mind i had a normal 14" portable and it could receive sky no probs ? im confused.

    any ideas ?:confused:

    As you say, loads of Pro V owners hang out here so no worries on that account :)

    My Pro V (just used for ocassional TV viewing on an LCD PC monitor) is fed exactly as yours & tuned in Sky with no problems.

    Only suggestion is to change the Sky boxes output channel (default is 39 IIRC).

    Can't remember exactly how to do this - try a search on Google or ask in the Satellite TV forum.

    :)

    I think the RF channel out is in the setup menu. You may need a combiner to get both signals at the same time.

    just found this on digital spy, thanks to google

    To change the RF output channel on Sky

    Press services, 4, 0, 1, Select.

    This takes you to the installers menu.

    Choose RF Outlets, and then enter the channel you want.


    thanks for all you help, these forums are a great source of quality information thanks to the moderators and members who contribute:clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:
