  00laufox 00:59 07 Sep 2009

ive been trying to connect my new ACER PC, which has a TV card in to my new Sky plus box.

Had a lot of problems with it and the shop where i purchased it from had it working in the shop, shown it to me and when i got home and did the same thing it didnt work.

ive conected an arial cable to the TV port on my PC and then into the RF2 port on my sky box but when i go onto windows media centre and click on live tv it doesnt give me a signal....

please please help.

Just a guess but have you a TV AE connected to the sky box and on mine the RF out is RF2

what are you trying to do? get sky tv channels on your pc via your tv tuner card? i don't think you can do that - can you?

You should not have a problem connecting the Sky box to your TV card through coaxial cable.
Have you set up media centre to obtain the signal?
Connect the coaxial to a TV just to confirm the sky box is outputing a signal.
