5.0 out of 5 stars It DOES work with the new Amstrad 1 T-byte SKY HD Box, 6 Sept. 2010
This review is from: RTX Wireless Phone Jack (Accessory)
[[ASIN:B000NJQHL4 RTX Wireless Phone Jack

I found this worked straight out of the box with my new 1 T-byte Amstrad Sky+ HD box. It seems that the the thing to remember is the comment made by several other reviewers that there is a basic error in the instalation instructions. When connecting the Sky box to the receiving unit the switch on it needs to be set to 'S' (speech mode) not 'C' (computer) as indicated in the instructions.

I connected the transmitter unit to the ADSL filter on my telephone/broadband socket with the lead and adaptor supplied then plugged the transmitter into the mains socket. Took the receiver downstairs, plugged the Sky box telephone lead into it and then plugged it into the mains. After a couple of seconds the required yellow (looks more amber to me) light came on. That was three days ago. As checks, I have disconnected the telephone lead from the Sky box, which is immediately noted by the on-screen display 'no telephone line connected'. On reconnection, when I go back into the on screen menu it confirms telephone line is now connected. I have connected a telephone to the receiver and been able to make and receive calls without problem. The instuctions state that that it can also be set up to run off an ADSL filter attached to a broadband hub, which I have no reason to doubt because as a temporary measure I had been running the Sky box off an extension lead from just such an arrangement. The transmitter and receiver are no larger than typical transformer plugs for phone chargers etc, which is really a small sacrifice to make when you don't have the bother of hard wiring etc. All in all it's worked perfectly for me.
