Hi Ali

The gnome comes with a transmitter.  This plugs into the back of the Sky
box somewhere, along with phono cables and your aerial plug.  Then you
can take the gnome around the house as it transmits the Sky signal from
its base.  The gnome has two speakers to its rear, so you can listen to
output from whatever is being broadcast on Sky.  There is a headphone
socket on the gnome as well.  You can change channels using its buttons,
go up and down if you don't know the direct numbers, and adjust the
volume.

I hope that sort of makes sense.

Hi Ali

It is a small sort of triangular-shaped device that relays the sound
of
any broadcast on Sky to another  part of the house.  It is stereo,
allows you to change channels, or turn the Sky box on if it is off.
The
battery lasts about eight hours, but comes with a mains charger.

Same here Steve.  I rang them when I read it on Saturday, and I
ordered
one without giving any other info.  I guess it depends on who you
get!!
I thought I'd get one as a spare because I use it a lot.  And they
are
very hard to get hold of now.

Um... Interesting but not strictly true.  Well, not acording to my
experience this morning.  I simply rang up and mentioned that I'd
seen
this being discussed on a mailing list at the weekend and asked if
there
were any gnomes left.  I was told there was and they said they'd send
me
one out.  No mention of codes or insight, smiles.

Hi Everyone.

Just ordered my free sky gnome from the RNIB.  For those of you
thinking
of doing the same, you need to quote a reference number you can only
get
from Insight radio who are the promoters of this particular sky
accessory.  Their contact details are on their website
www.insightradio.co.uk and you must provide the reference number
they
give you to RNIB's customer services before they can process your
order.
