TVLink power problem

    Hey everyone.

    I've purchased a TVLink so I can control my sky box from a different room. However, the TVLink isn't being powered (red LED doesn't light up). I have switched on the RF setting in the Sky settings as per the instructions, so I'm assuming that the cable is too long and the power can't "reach" far enough.

    So, two questions:
    (a) Is my diagnosis correct?
    (b) if so, what product can I buy to boost the power?

    I've seen several "boosters" on sale, but I'm not clear whether they just boost the TV signal, or the power too.

    Any help is much appreciated.

    Hey guys, thanks for the quick replies. Apologies to dupe.

    Hmm, looks like I must have a problem in one of my connections. I'll find someone with electrical knowledge to ask :)
