SKY & Thomson DSI 4212: Help Please!


Prominent Member
Hello all,

Just subscribed to SKY

I've setup connected this way

Dish-->Freeview Box-->JS VGA (RGB Conv)-->Panasonic PWD7

Engineer replaced freeviewbox with Thomson digibox. No picture but can hear sound. He tried lot of options and at last through remote he keyed in some numbers and got setup screen. Again card activation failed as telephone callback failed due to some reasons.

He advised me to ring SKY and request for activation and left.

After he left i just switched off and switched on again. No picture again and i don't know which key to press to gain access to screen (is this something to do with setup of digibox?)

My queries

a. Anybody knows how to setup / configure digibox for picture?
b. Is telephone line requied to connect all the time to digibox ?
c. Where can i find a proper manual of Thomson DSI 4212 (One which comes with digibox just have SKY onscreen help only)

Thanks in advance
hi dont know if you sorted it but i had the same problem and i need to set the picture RGB in the picture settings, i used a video lead first to get the picture on the screen then i plugged in the js converter when it was set to rgb

cheers lee
