Hi first time user here, I have looked through other posts and can't find the answer.
Have MySky, was able to watch sky on other TV's in the house (same channel as main TV) after it went digital we can't anymore.  
Have checked the tunning on other tvs is analogue.  
Have been told that I need a diplexer... but can't see how that can work either.

Currently two cables coming in, one to Sky and one to Mysky.  Then Mysky to splitter then back into the wall.

Have attached some photos (I hope)

Any help would be appreciated for this non tech person!

So, the cable going from the 'To TV' plug in the top picture goes to the 'IN' of the Splitter in the Middle Picture, then the two cables form that go to TVs in other rooms?

Did it work OK before? What has changed? Going Digital should not have changed it (except that the Sky will appear on an Analogue channel, but that should not be an issue).

The "to tv" goes to the splitter then from there one goes to the wall and the other goes to the DVD player.

Sorry yes it worked well on all 3 'other' TV's throughout the house. Was away when Auckland went digital, but was fine before now not working at all on any of the tvs.

OK so I thought about what you said, and have just climbed into the roof over to where the cables are and found a plug undone... Guess what it now works... One million thank you's. Only thing is 40+ woman shouldn't be climbing around a roof space!

I'm surprised there was room in the roof space for over 40 women to be up there.
