I have just installed a TV Link to my sky box and the picture is fine and the remote works but we have got no sound on the second TV

Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks

Just a thought, if the 2nd TV is from Spain not the UK then it may be the incorrect version of Pal, but I may be very wrong

Looking at this chart Spain uses Pal B/G and UK pal I so could very well be the problem

Sounds like the case Topper, you need PAL I for the sound from a Digibox. See if the TV has an option for PAL I in the sound menu.

It depends on the TV but you may be able to alter the settings in the menu. If it has autosetup and you just connected using the terrestrial aerial then it may have auto switched to B/G but again I am only guessing it is however worth checking and even experimenting

Sorry our replies crossed Leanne, it should work on a British TV, but still check the sound settings.

Even worse, I only looked at the bottom post, so didn't see your answer. :-lmao. :)

Well nobody can say that we ignored Leanne's post. :)

Thanks for all the replies guys! i´ve tried the sound menu with no luck, could it have anything to do with the cable ? I´m using the same kind as the one from the disk to the digibox

Just out of curiosity have you tried taking the portable over to the sky box and connecting using a scart then switching the TV to AV1, do you get sound then?

Tried the scart plug and it had sound so I guess it must be the cable, thanks for your help

Can't see it being the cable Leanne, as the video and audio signal are sent to the TV in one lump (for want of a better description). :) It will either be the digibox malfunctioning, or the TV settings, have you got an English VCR there that you can check it with?

Connect the TVlink to the VCR input, then connect the VCR by scart to the TV and select the AV channel on the VCR. If you have sound via the scart connection, then at least you know that it is the audio setting on the TV.

Well done, particularly as I gave the wrong instructions above. :-lmao

I meant to say, tune the video to the Sky channel and select the AV channel on the TV. :-doh2
