What can it do in this Sky “installer menu”

The Sky installer menu offers the following options :

  • LNB Setup – options to change LNB settings (DO NOT CHANGE) or place the box into “Single Cable feed mode”
  • Default transponder – don’t change this setting. Tells the Sky box where to download it data from during the boot up process.
  • Telephone Settings – no longer required with the use of inetrnet router connections
  • RF Outlets – allows you to choose which channel the Sky box will output its analogue PAL signal on, for use with a “Sky Magic Eye” system to resend the signal to other rooms via an RF cable.
  • Manual tuning – does the same as Add Channels in the System Setup menu
  • New installation – don’t select this unless you are a Sky installer. Simply activates a viewing card.
  • Sky+ planner rebuild – allows Sky+ to rebuild list of recordings after a major box crash. A bit like a Hard Drive “Defrag”.
  • Full system reset – factory reset, which includes a format of the Hard Drive (loses recordings)
