Enable Power Supply


  • Press Services, 0, 0, 1 Select (setup highlighted)
  • Scroll across to RF Outlets
  • Then down to RF Outlet Power Supply, switch this on.
  • Press Green to save settings.

The red power light on TV Link will now be lit and your Magic eye should be clearly visible in order to pick up remote commands.


Make sure your Sky box is switched ON and tuned to a channel. Tune your TV so it picks up your Sky picture. For instructions on how to do this, consult your TV manual or refer to the manufacturer's support website or helpline.


Once your TV is tuned you'll see the Sky picture and you'll be able to control the Sky+HD box via the TV LINK.


Your Sky remote may need to be set up to work your TV functions, such as volume and mute. For help, see Program your Sky remote.

Can I do this with the new Sky Q as I could not afford the third room?

Afraid not @Upperdine1, there are no RF outlets on the Sky Q box.
