Product Description

SLx Link Satellite TV Remote Control Extender Ideal for digital satellite TV, allows you to control your Sky box from the second TV from a different room. More Details The SLx Link solves a problem - once you've laid cable around your home to extend your use of Sky Satellite TV to another room you still have to change the channel! The Philex SLx Link simply plugs into the digital coaxial cable where it enters the second TV, and extends remote control back to the Sky Satellite box. Once the SLx Link is in place you can control the Sky Satellite box with the original remote or a suitable universal remote control. If you need to control more than one source (e.g. a Free view box as well as Sky), then you need to use the SLx Omni Link in conjunction with the SLx Link. What Does It Work With? The SLx Link is absolutely wonderful for Sky TV, including Sky Plus. The only thing we are sure it will not work with is Virgin Media. This is because Virgin Media boxes do not have line power out. You can use the SLx Omni Link or the Blue delta Smart Blaster in conjunction with the SLx Link to control Virgin Media boxes. Technical Stuff For optimum performance the Philex SLx Link should have a direct connection with no interruptions to the RF out 2 on your Digi box. Splitters, amplifiers and isolated wall plates either drop the voltage (9v) that is being sent from RF out 2 (any capacitors in circuit will pass AC but will block DC), or when sharing the signal the voltage is also shared and drops below its working voltage. To turn the power on from RF2 on a Sky Box: Using a Sky remote press Services, then press 4, then type in 0 1, select, then press 4. Make sure the RF 2 Power is switched ON. Aerial Amplifiers For multiple installations a SLx Aerial Amplifier may be needed such as the SLx 2B, a SLx4B, a SLx6B or a SLx8B - these 'B' type amplifiers have a digital bypass built into them and will also feed 9 volts to each output to power as many SLx Links as you co

Manufacturer's Description

Slx Link System comes with an infra-red eye which receives signals from remote controls on a second TW away from the digital receiver, to operate their digital receiver using a remote control from their correct location+.

I have used this to run an extension through to a spare TV in the conservatory.

Set up.
----------
This is easy, just fit the SLx between the Ariel cable from the SKY box and the TV. Position the IR receiver in line of sight and that's it. They even provide an adhesive pad to mount the IR receiver in a permanent position.

Notes on using this with SKY box's.
-----------------------------------------------
ON my SKY HD box I needed to run the extension Ariel cable from the RF 2 socket on the back as this also carries a 5 volt supply to run the SLx Magic eye, it won't work off RF 1 as this has no 5 volts. You must also make sure that the RF sockets are live on your SKY box or it will not work. On my box I had to enter the engineering menu to do this. Here is Sky's instructions to get into the menus on the different boxes:

Press the 'Sky' button
2.Press 'Services' button on the remote
3.Select the 'System Setup' option which was number 4 at the time of writing this article
4.Using the remote press '01' and then 'Select'

If you have the new Sky+ HD guide, then follow the below:

1.Press the 'Sky' button
2.Press 'Services' button on the remote

3.Press '001' and then 'Select'

When in the engineers menu, you will get options similar to below*:
1.LNB Setup
2.Default Transponder
3.Telephone Settings
4.RF Outlets
5.Manual Tuning
6.New Installation
7.Sky+ Planner Rebuild
8.Full System Reset

Choose the RF outlets and make sure they are on and on my box I needed to press the Green button to save this. If you run into problems just Google 'how do I set up a second TV on my Sky box' and there is plenty of help out there.

I needed this as a secondary infra red receiver because my Sky plus box is hidden in a cabinet and can't receive the signal from my Sky remote. I didn't want it for connecting to any tv, main or 2nd set, because my Sky remote is already tuned to my tv (volume and on/off) , I just needed it to change channels on my Sky box, without my Sky box being in view. When I opened the packaging & read the instructions I was dismayed when I read that I needed a coax cable & had to connect it to tv. But I found that this was not the case in my situation, my Sky plus box is connected to tv via scart lead. I just plugged the unit straight into the RF2 socket on my Sky plus box and stuck the infra red receiver onto side of cabinet (threaded through a hole in the back) the unit comes with sticky pad that made this possible. Now, even though my Sky box is hidden, it can receive a remote signal via a less noticeable Magic Eye (I had to also set my Sky box in order to set up the RF - pressing 'SERVICES' on my remote, then 4, 0, 1, SELECT (this has to be done blindly as the numbers don't show up on screen as you press them). INSTALLERS MENU came up, I picked 'RF OUTLETS' and then turned 'RF OUTLET POWER SUPPLY' on.....and that was that). But you may need a length of coax cable for connecting the unit to the Sky box if you need longer than 2 feet, for that is the length of wire the Magic Eye comes with, it was just enough in my case. It IS NOT a video sender. It CANNOT send a picture from Sky box to your tv. It would have to be connected via a length of coax cable in order to send signal to your tv, via RF which is one of the worst ways to send signal to your tv.

(UPDATE OCTOBER 2011)
The newer SKYHD boxes will need a new code, not 401 as above.

This piece of kit is great!

It only took me about 5-10mins to set up. Make sure you read the instructions, they are short and sweet but have a key part in where you enter a number into your sky/sky+ box to activate the RF socket on the box, this in turn powers the philex adapter. I have had this gizmo for nearly a year now and cannot fault it.
