It is a Panasonic CX 700. TV
Hi there,
Is there an external aerial connected to the TV?
How is the Sky box connected to the TV?

there is an external Ariel. The sky box is linked to the TV (and 4 others in the house)by a magic eye. I have tuned all the terrestrial channels and the internet is connected . It is only the sky satellite that I can not tune.
Ok, connecting Sky with a Magic Eye uses analog signals, however the CX700 is a digital-only TV, so it will be unable to tune in to the analog Sky signal as it does not have an analog tuner.

So what can I do?
With this TV, you will need to connect the Sky box directly to it using a HDMI cable, or swap it for another TV that has a built-in analog tuner to receive the magic eye signal.

I thought you said it had to be an Analogue signal
Analog, yes.
Is there anything else I can help you with today?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No that is fine thank you. I will try and exchange the TV
Ok, have a good day!
