Yeah discussion with family member over sky box not working in the bedroom. I said you don't have one in the bedroom is it working in the tv room? Yes it was so I said it's likely to be the cable. Is it in the correct socket at both ends? Yes just please come over. So I did and replaced cable in correct socket in the sky box. I was given dinner and an apology but annoyed I'd had to go over in the first place. One of my nieces admitted to pulling it out by accident and putting it back.
