Hi there - I have 3 TV's located in my home - fed by one My Sky box. That is two of the locations are remote from the box and coax cable fed. I have just replaced one fo the locations with a new Bravia - upsized from 26 to 33. The 26 was connected and receiving Sky via coax and continues its perforance in its new location. The new 33 did its auto search on digital and analogue but I cannot get the sky signal on it. Is anyone out there able to point me in the right direction?

You are presumably just using the RF output from the Sky box so the picture will only be on analogue and not digital.

In my experience, either Sky was not "turned on" while the auto tune was doing its thing or cables were incorrectly plugged in.

Either way as "sbiddle" said it should be coming up on one of your analogue channels.

I would suggest doing another auto analogue tune make sure sky is turned on and on a channel you know is coming from sky.

While the auto tune is running take notice of how many channels are being picked up and which one sky is on, you will have to rearrange these once it has completed

Hi, rather than auto tune try a manual tune, ensure the analog tuner is set for PAL B/K and start around channel 30 and scan up. The standard Sky modulator channels to be used are ch36 or 38.

I presume you have confirmed with the TV that does work that the RF coax thats connected to your new TV does work, ie there is a signal on it.

Check the other TV connected via coax. See what analogue channel sky is tuned to on that (as in frequency not what button you push on the remote). Manually set you analogue tuner on the new TV to that same channel.
