    Just recieved my shiny 15" Widecreen Samsung LCD TV. Using in the bedroom off the 2nd RF, but TV reports that sky channel in only Mono ?

    Is the signal from the 2nd RF only Mono ?

    I have a V1 SKY+, ugraded with Maxtor 80Gb disk.

    Yep that sounds normal , not usually a problem because the second feed is normally going into an old portable or something.

    But if you want stereo you may need to look at either a second sky box, a video sender (not sure if they transmit stereo) or a 40ft scart lead ;)

    RF modulators inside set top boxes etc never generate a receivable (NICAM) stereo signal. To get stereo from such a device you will need to use AV connections - SCART or separate video, audio left, audio right.

    Guess I'm stuck with Mono for now ...

    (or would be if the TV wasn't back in the box after only a day as it keeps switching itself off - think it is overheating).
