Di I need an identification code for my replacement tv

My old TV died so I installed a replacement which used to be linked in another room.  The TV works but I cannot access Sky channels.  Do I need to go to a specific channel or use a code?

Which Sky System do you have?

 

1. Sky Plus (Sky Plus Forum)
2. Sky Q (Sky Q Forum)
3. Sky Glass/Sky Streaming Puck (Sky Glass Forum)

@Sportnut I'm guessing the new TV is connected via coax cable and a magic eye to your Sky+ box in another room. If that's right, you'll need to use your TV's setup menu to carry out a channel scan in order to pick up your Sky box.

 

Couple of points: 

1. Does your new TV have an analogue tuner as well as DVB-T/Freeview/Digital? If it doesn't have an analogue tuner, it's not compatible with your Sky box connection

 

2. If your Sky box's RF Output Channel is set to the default channel 68, your new TV may not find it, as new TV's won't tune above channel 50.
