Hi.

You will need to select a channel that you don't use on your
2nd tv, then do a UHF scan as if you were searching for terrestial tv, this will pick up the frequency of the Satellite signal being sent through your cable & you should get a picture.

You may have to check your Digibox to make sure the RF out function
is set ON.

Cheers

Perhaps your new TV is set for PAL B/G. Can you change to PAL I?

If you can't change your TV to accept Pal I transmissions then you might want to investigate buying a videosender. This would plug into one of the scart sockets on the digibox and the other unit plugs into a scart socket on the TV.

Another possibility is to use an old RF modulation unit off, say, a games console to send the TV signal down the TV aerial cable. Obviously you would have to get one with European Pal B/G capabilities rather than UK Pal I specification.

You could of course just get hold of your mums tv in the bedroom that hasn't been switched on for years next time you visit her:-tree Assuming of course she is still in the UK ... maybe not but you get the principle

The other option (if you have no PAL I setting on the TV) is to run it from your VCR and set the VCR to whatever AV connector the Sky runs into.:) The VCR doesn't need to be fully functional, as long as the loopthrough and RF modulator works.
