apologies for the non pc related topic.but as its late/early:

(FE please utilise your gold plated deleting mouse if required)

this is driving me totally insane and im sure you knowledgeable guys and gals can help me(you're my last chance.please help me as im missing corrie etc LOL!)

the coax cable to my pace sky digibox came out of the connector to the box(screw on f connector i believe) due to me tripping over the cable whilst decorating(stop laughing)

i have followed instructions click here to the letter and my digibox just hangs on "searching for listings.also if i check "settings/system set up/signal test" there is no signal at all.

any ideas folks?

and as above FE please delete if you feel inappropriate.ta.

Have you checked that the braided copper wire is not touching the inner wire core just one strand can cause problems (no signal). Always unplug the digi box for two to three mins, plug back in and let the box reset it self (takes about four mins) then check for a signal.

thank you BRYNIT i did check that before as the instructions said to be carefull of this.

its now sorted.

rewired again and all is ok.

here must have been a stray copper wire touching the core its the only thing i can think of.i was very careful.


thanks again and sorry everybody for the non pc post.

ta. :-)
