Missing Channels. by prospero
I'm hoping someone can cast some light on a strange glitch that started yesterday (7/3/17).... Some channels display the "Your SkyHD box is not getting a signal..." message. Others are fine. Typically, it's the ones I like that are duds. But the plot thickens. On checking the signal strengths, Input 1 and input 2 both show good strength and quality on some channels. Others show no input 2 and...

Strange Sky HD to second TV problem by Graham Naylor[_3_]
Hi, I have just upgraded the Sky box in my living room from Sky+ to Sky+ HD, the main TV is now connected using an HD lead rather than the SCART lead that was in use previously. Originally the Sky+ box was connected to a second TV in the kitchen via a Co-Axial lead, this worked perfectly. However when this lead was moved onto the HD box the second TV had a very grainy picture and sound that...

Sky remote control by Isaac Hunt
On Mon, 25 Jan 2016 13:32:05 -0000, Mr Pounder Esquire wrote: Sky + HD box. One of the buttons on the remote was not working properly. Whilst looking in to it we used a remote from the previous non HD box. I noticed that the standbye button was not working, it had worked fine on this box in the past. The LED was not flashing when the button was press. The batteries are new. Google...

Advice on next TV by [email protected]
I've just upgraded from Sky+ to Sky+ HD and installed the new box today. Everything appears to work OK apart from one all important thing: the volume buttons on the remote. I cannot change volume or mute the sound. The only way to do so is using the *old* remote. After an hour's googling I've still found no solution. Many seem to suffer a similar problem and the most frequent suggestion made...

Sky On Demand by Jeff Gaines
I am towards the end of series 2 of The West Wing using Sky On Demand. I am watching in standard rather than HD to reduce the load on my Internet connection. The series are now all out of order and jumbled on the On Demand part of the EPG. The HD episodes are in proper order. I have powered down and re-booted the Sky box but it has made no difference.

Sky + Box using 1 Satellite Cable? by Graham Naylor[_3_]
Hi, On our multi-room Sky connection we have been using an old Sky box (pre recording days) which only uses one satellite cable, this box has now died after many years use but we do have a Sky+ box that we used to use in the living room before we upgraded to HD. Is it possible to use this Sky+ box with one satellite cable just for watching Sky and not recording and if so which of the two...

SKY box clash with Freeview TV by [email protected]
Hi there I'm hoping someone will be kind enough to answer what I consider a simple question. I have a SKY box with a lapsed account ( ie essentially a freesat service ), my very old TV has given up the ghost and I need to replace it, but was wondering if I get one with Freeview will the existing service from the SKY box over-ride the Freeview built into the TV ? I know I could buy a TV with...

Sky+HD and DVD recording by John[_34_]
We have a Sky+HD recorder (an Amstrad DRX 890C) but not the HD service, only SD. We also have a Philips DVDR 7260H, which is a stand-alone DVD/HDD recorder. Both machines have HDMI outputs which go up to the TV - selecting HDMI 1 on the TV means that you can watch the Sky box; HDMI 2 means you can watch the DVD Recorder/Player. I record lots of music videos from Sky Arts 1 and BBC4 on the...

Sky EPG by Jeff Gaines
This group seems to be close to moribund! My Sky EPG is playing up, it doesn't seem to store listings any more, it always shows "no listings available" and I have to wait for it to down-load them. Is my box about to die or is there another reason? Is there a better place to ask Sky tech questions?

On Demand by Mr Pounder
The wife finally decided that she wanted the TV On Demand box plugged in. I watch very little TV so I'm thick on these things. Okay, Superhub and Sky box thing plugged in, correct network etc. It did not work. Sky support said all my settings were correct. I'm only getting 31% wireless signal strength to the On Demand box, but I may be able to get more if I mess with the settings. Is 31%...

New fibre upgrade and new hub by Isaac Hunt
Fibre has finally arrived in my area so I've decided to upgrade. I've just been sent a new sky hub router (currently got the older Sagem router) with a note on it saying not to use it before 14th April. This gives me a couple of questions As it's a standard broadband router why can't I use it before the swap from broadband to fibre? Can I stick with my current Sagem router? Not that I probably...

Re Sky + HD Box to Spain by Deebrief
Hi I want to take my Sky Box to Spain with the UK HD card to use as the free to air programmes have all but gone. However I want to leave the box down there and just take the card out as and when. But if I get hold of a newer box this end I know the UK one will not work with the card as Sky pick up on the fact the box does not marry up with the card. Is there a cheap way round this problem...

Satellite switch by BrritSki[_2_]
Hi, my Sky+ box in Italy has stopped working with the satellite change, but a friend nearby in France with a Sky+ HD box is still getting BBC etc. Is switching to a Sk+ HD box the long-term answer to this or is a bigger dish needed ? TIA

TV on demand?? by Mr Pounder
Okay, I'm stupid and know nothing about wireless. I got my TV on demand wireless connector yesterday. I can plug it in etc, then it comes to the password thingee. I'm supposed to enter it on the Sky remote control, but it would seem that many people have had problems doing this as the passphase is letters. My Virgin Media Superhub has a WPS PIN but no button to press. The instruction book...
