Hi i'm a new Sky HD user having had it fitted yeserday and i'm impressed so far. My only problem is The Sky recption on my other TVs has moved fron CH 41 to CH 68 and the picture is awful - Am i missing something here? Can anyone help ? I didnt notice this before the Sky engineer left. Is this a common problem switching from Sky plus to Sky HD ? if so whats the cure ?

In the SKY box settings you can change the channel number back to 41. It is most likely that 69 is interferring with or getting interfered by an adjacent channel on your aerial system. Go to services menu and select 4,0,1.

When we had HD installed the engineer left it with the aerials plugged in wrongly at the rear of the box (ie something like tv aerial into rf2 and vice versa :suicide: ), so the picture to our tv link upstairs was barely visible. Think he was in a rush to get home for his tea cos he also didn't switch the power on for the RF2 output, which may be the problem you're having?

Thanks for your suggestion- I cant find anywhere to change the channel over on System set up (4) theres no (0) option but picture setup.

I think you're probably right about the channels because the other sets cant pick it up, but I cant seem to find a way of doing it. Is there a seperate service menu for tec tweaks?

Shep if you're right how do you tweak the RF 2 to on ?

Just key in what the OP said ....... 4,0,1, select. '0' is a hidden option.

The "RF2 power" on/off is only needed to be on to power a TV Link (or "Magic Eye") it does not affect the RF output from the RF2...the 9V DC is only required to be on to power the link...the RF signal is present all the time...the same as the RF1 outlet.
