Thanks Franc,FRANTIC FRANC said:I hate Thomson!! We have loads of these returned, there was a problem with software on the sound last year and updating the box rarely cured the fault. Try the force download and hope for the best. Personally I would book the service call as I would rather have a refurb (if you're lucky a you may get a Panasonic or Sony) than a new Thomson. Cheers, Franc
Cheers mate will do, I'll let you know what happensFRANTIC FRANC said:What usually happens if he is an ASA is that they buy, fit & cover the whole lot for 12 months themselves. Nothing to do with Sky except the card that is in your box which you pay direct to Sky. They will claim the cost of the box back to Sky and usually get a small commission for getting a new subscriber. So the box is not Sky's box and as such they will not cover it as that falls on the ASA. If however you have problems in the future they will probably help you out with a free service call just to keep you subscribing. Like I said Sky standard installs use the new flow stb's, the model you have may have been new but old on the shelf if you know what I mean. Cheers, Franc
p.s. ask them if they have a Panasonic instead!
yep 22 and I still live at homeIf you live we parents (I'm assuming) then the hardest thing for you both is to get them to agree to having telephone wires around your skirting boards and door frames
I'm doing that, using an SLX booster - Ive lowered the RF setting on the Sky Box for RF2 to 42, but my picture quality is still terrible .FRANTIC FRANC said:Why don't you just put one aerial straight to the Sky box and then split rf2 with a tv link compatible booster box to the other tvs.the aerial pictures will be sent along with the sky picture in one cable. most booster boxes have the fm input too. That's what we do and the pictures tend to be spot on.
How do you lower the RF setting os the sky box....as I am getting alot of inteference on my second TV which I am using with a magic eye and running from the RF2AidenL said:One more for you Franc, copied from another thread

When I actually bypass the Sky Box, the picture improves dramatically on the feeds to the other TVs - does this indicate something else wrong in my Sky box?
