Anyone know what UHF frequency Sky use on their RF modulators in Auckland that they provide customers for RF distribution out of the Sky box.

I have a couple at home I use to 're-broadcast' Sky and a DVD player round the home.

The Sky one (my own modulator) was set on ch39 but now has interference on it following the re-stack.

I know I could select a channel by trial and error, but thought I could jump straight to the one Sky use in Auckland.

I gather from another forum that they have about 6 channels around the 36 - 40 region and should be selectable in the Menu. Maybe even more channels. Whichever one you use is personal choice. Personally I wouldn't touch one with a barge pole. Best is HDMI and worst is Composite. IMO a modulator doesn't even rate.

Try and choose one on CH40 or above. Mine was on CH37 but changed it to CH40 last week.
