Hi,
I had Sky+ in my living room through a HD tv. This was then linked via the RF2 output, sky coax to 2 TV's upstairs via a splitter. When I initial set this up, I had to retune the upstairs TV'S to a channel lower than 60 in order to avoid the splitter "filtering the signal. Any channel above 60 was "fuzzy and cloudy" so I setteled on 55.

Yesterday, I took a step in the modern ages and connected a Sky+hd box in the living room. Paired the card, connected to internet etc and alls good downstairs. However, I can't get sky upstairs any longer? Tried retuning the tv and all I get is a "fuzzy / cloudy" signal?

The TV's upstairs may not by HD ready, but that shouldn't be a problem for most channels, should it? (I don't subscribe to any of the HD packages and am happy just getting the standard HD).

Any ideas?

Have you made sure the new box's RF out is tuned to the right channel (eg 55)? You'll need to enter the installer menu to change this, press Services, then press 0 0 1 and select to enter the hidden menu and go to the RF outlets option.

The latest SkyHD boxes do not have rf outputs on them. If your does it will probably be set to the default channel 68, which you need to drop down to your 55
