      Angry plus box dead,tv link inop

      hi to all,just wanted some advice please,my plus box died on tuesday night whilst watching upstairs via a tv link,its a thomson box with the common power supply failure,it also blew the 3amp fuse in the power lead at the same time.am in the process of getting it fixed so as a temp measure i connected up my old sky box to keep us going in the short term.all working fine until i went upstairs to watch it & found the tv link is only partially working,there is no picture or sound upstairs but it does change the channels downstairs . the led is lit on the tv link so its getting power from the rf2 outlet,i took apart the cable connector downstairs to check correct fitment as i thought i might have disturbed something when i connected my old box back up but it all appears in order. What i really want to know is if its possible that the tv link got a bit of a voltage spike when the plus box failed & blew the fuse in the power lead which may have given it limited operation or am i missing something obvious ?

      Have you tried re-tuning the upstairs tv? The OP from the 2 boxes may be on different channels.

      got my faulty psu back today for the plus box,fitted it in,& now the tv link is working upstairs again so i think the rf2 output on my old sky box must be at fault,anyway thanks for the reply i`ll remember next time it goes pop
