Hello, In order to tell you what must be done, I need to know the following:
1) Model Number off of the back of the Sony.
2) What type of connection is made between the Sky Box and the Sony (Scart, Aerial, HDMI, etc.)?
3) What exactly do you see on the screen of your Sony?

Cable from the attic Sky box

We can get Netflix and also some local channels of Ireland so TV is working but just cannot hook up to Sky

Okay, can you please elaborate on:
"Cable from the attic Sky Box"?
What type of cable- coaxial cable (screw on type connection), or RCA cables (colored RCA plugs), or single HDMI cable (high def cable), etc.?
Also, what is the port on the TV labeled where this cable plugs into the TV?
