Hi All,
My set up is a standard sky+ installation using the pace box.

I have a Philex SLX8L distribution unit in the loft and want top use SLX links in all rooms that i require.

Now the problem... i have spoken to philex technical(about as much help as a chocolate fireguard) and they cant resolve the problem and state that its my pace sky box(this was after he told me that they have an uncompatability with amstrad box)'O'-red, however i followed exactly what they said and took the SLX8L unit out of the system and put my sky box in the loft to test out direct from the box using the slk link and i get no result whatsoever... that was the end of philex help.

I am getting 9v dc output from RF2 and the light on the slx link lights and the light in the magic eye lights up when the remote is pressed, however i am getting no channel change or anything for that matter.

Please can someone help, even if i have to start again with new kit.. just please help.

Cheers in advance
Phil:confused:confused:confused:confused

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 35 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

Welcome to the forum mrhappychappy69

You know there is a saying "A picture says a thousands words" and I think in this case it is very appropriate. Your post does not make it very clear (to me anyhow) what it is you are trying to do perhaps a detailed diagram would help!

Try buying another make of link, perhaps Global and test it direct with the Sky digibox.
