    Hi all

    Basically, I have a sky box that sends an analogue signal through an Arial cable to a TV in a separate room. This TV can then be tuned in to receive the signal that comes down this wire.

    Currently, the TV we have does not have a remote control, so we went to the shop and got a universal remote control, and, although it does work sort of, I can’t get the OK button to work (or any other button to perform this function). I have also tried configuring the sky remote control to do this, but to no avail.

    My problem is, I can’t get the TV to tune in to the stuff coming over the wire because this particular TV does not have that function on the build in buttons, and as I have said, I cant get a remote control to work with it.

    I was wondering if there was the equivalent of a digital set top box but for analogue signals, or alternatively, if there were any digi boxes that can also receive terrestrial? i could then get the tv to switch to the scart input and just use that item to select the channel.

    Or, if anyone has any other suggestions on how to solve this problem without buying a new TV?

    Cheers

    You could see if you can get the original remote control at Partmaster/ or eBay.

    I don't think you're gonna be able to get an Analogue tuner. They're pretty much redundant these days and when they weren't, they had USB or VGA connections for PC/Monitors. Nothing that'll fit into a TV, after all, what's the point.

    EDIT: Actually, VCR's have tuners in them. You could find one with a SCART output cheap, tune the Sky channel into that then get the VCR to output the picture to the TV via SCART.
