The RF2 from what? As said before, to get live TV from your aerial and/or video from the Freeview box to another room, you need some sort of RF modulator external to the box with an aerial connection and a video input from the Freeview box as there is no modulator in the Freeview box like there is in some Sky boxes.i am trying to hardwire the humax box to my upstairs tv through the rf 2.
You mean the Humax H3? What's wrong with it? If it doesn't do what it's supposed to do, that's what needs debugging. Using something like the H3 (or perhaps some other DLNA client device) should be the solution to your problem.I have a h3 and not very impressed with it
You mean RF OUT (that's the label on the aerial-through socket on the rear of the FVP-4000T)? All the RF OUT socket does is pass through the aerial signal. It does not include a modulated version of whatever the FVP-4000T is playing through its HDMI socket. If you want to do that, you will need an external modulator such as an old VCR or this device (click), and connect it to the phono outputs from the FVP-4000T. The picture quality will be very poor compared with a TV connected directly to the 4000T by HDMI (or even by phono).that is why i am trying to hardwire the humax box to my upstairs tv through the rf 2.
I presume you mean a "modulator", as per above. Okay, so if you are already doing what I suggested, the problem isn't with the 4000T. As long as it is turned on, the modulator will "broadcast" an analogue TV channel regardless of whether it has an input, so you need to get that working first and you can connect the modulator directly to the target TV. The TV needs to be able to receive analogue TV (some are not, now we no longer have a domestic analogue service), and it needs its input source set to the analogue tuner. Then you need to tune it to the modulator output. If the tuning doesn't find the modulator output, there's something wrong with it (either the modulator or the TV).My previous humax box was a freesat and through a modular I managed to achieve this and the tv picked the broadcast up on a anologe channel,but with freeview I can't manage to do this and I don't no why any advice,thanks
But (if I have been interpreting your posts correctly) you said you were using a modulator with a Freesat receiver, so why not do the same here?So to sum up I can't just run a cable out of the rf 2 on the back of humax and expect to be able to watch on the second TV in the bedroom it's just no that simple, thanks for all your replys

When using the H3, there is absolutely no requirement for an IR repeater/magic eye, nor is there any need for an aerial/RF cable.Something the H3 provides (but none of the solutions above offer) is control of what is being output to the TV. You will still need an IR repeater (which is presumably what you meant by "magic eye"), and these can either be connected by radio link, or (in the case of Sky-type kit) as a back feed in the aerial lead - but you will still need a way to launch the IR to the 4000T (whereas the Sky Magic Eye controls a Sky box directly).
Hi , having problems with rf2 relaying signal to bedroom tv.Have cable coming out of rf2 running up to bedroom tv but there is no signal to tv.Do you need to turn rf2 on in the settings and if so how,thanks Paul
