Default SKY Quickfix

When we go away, YET AGAIN & AGAIN, we alway take our Sky HD box which is used with our Oyster dish. It alway has been a fafffff, to crawl around unplugging it all and reconnecting it in the RV and then putting it all back when we come home.

However, I have found a link on Sky which allows an easier path. Firstly you need a another box which is permanently fitted in the RV. It has to be the same type as you have at home ie, HD, Plus or plain box. I got our extra HD box for 16 + pp from Fleabay. When you go away, simply take your card from home and put it into your RV box. Then log onto the following link to pair the card to the box.

www.sky.com/quickfix

Easy peasy and when you come home, then pair the card back to the home box. I have spoken to SKY, and have been told that you can pair back and forwards as much as you like.

Hi Mike, I am not sure but I think you can get another card from Sky for 10?? so you can have another tv in another bedroom or the like, but you just put it in the RV and leave it there????? I might be wrong but I am sure there are others on here that can say if true or not, Regards Garry Flatpackchicken

Yes I already have another box and card in the bedroom. It's still a faff to disconnect it all etc and 10 per month equals 120 per year, which can be circumnavigated with this procedure.

What do you do about the TV in the bedroom??.. The new sky box doesn't have an RF out.. You need to get a modulator in order to connect to the coaxial..

SuperClever SuperMike.
Have you tried this out yet? I was under the impression that in order to pair the card to box the system uses the phone line and not the satellite, as the satellite is one way it doesnt take return signals. You would then need to ring sky and they can pair via a downlink, they may smell a rat if youre doing this process repeatedly. Hopefully the sky person you spoke to had the correct knowledge.

Of course if youre filling a form in online and then they just send a downlink you could be on a winner!!!!!!

Yes, tried it and it works, the signal is sent via the satellite.

Easy, make sure the box you get off fleabay, for the RV, has an RF2 out. Most sold on there are old enough to be ok. The TV in the RV lounge is fed directly from an HDMI cable.
