      Additional TV hook-up

      Hi
      Please help, just bought a new LED TV for the kitchen, the old tv was connected to my sky box with an Ariel lead splitter
      and I used to press the AV button on the old tv remote to watch the same sky channel as being watched in the lounge.
      new led tv has no av button on the remote and does not pick up sky, please tell me how to set up new tv, do I turn 'RF out' on then just connect to new tv
      re-tune and watch it's freeview and sky
      Sorry it seems a bit long winded, thanks for reading
      regards
      Mike

      new led tv has no av button on the remote and does not pick up sky,
      You will have to tune it to pick up the signal, just connect it, go into the TV settings and put it on auto tune. I have a Sony in my office which is connected up the same way, except I use a Magic Eye to change the Sky channel.

      If you are using RF out try using RF2 instead see if that is any better. Make sure it is enabled in the settings.

      Thanks for your help---sorted out the sky box RF outlets RF1 to lounge tv (just in case sky box crashes)
      RF2 outlet to kitchen tv---re,scanned kitchen tv on auto found channel 68 all working.
      Changed channel number to 20 on kitchen tv but EPG does not show it, can't have everything I suppose.
      Regards
      Mike
