      Sky+ box won't work with sky link

      Hi,

      I've just upgraded from standard Sky box to Sky+.

      I had a tv link working fine in my bedroom with the standard box. However, I can't get it to work at all with the Sky+ box. I get the tv signal fine and the RF2 port is turned on in the installation menu with channel 68. Yet I still can't change channels from my bedroom using the Sky+ remote.

      Any ideas?

      Thanks

      Is the LED on the magic eye unit illuminated?
      You are using the Sky + remote not the old standard box one?

      Hi,

      Yes the light on the magic eye is on. If I plug it directly into RF2 on the Sky
      + box it works. When I run it through to my bedroom it does not.

      This is confusing as the exact same setup was working fine with my old standard Sky box.

      Any ideas?

      Remove the coax plugs both ends and re make them ensuring that the inner and outer core do not touch.
