[access-uk] Re: Sky Gnome

I got mine this morning too, but I'm charging it up before I use it.  Still,
I wouldn't mind this walk through instructions too, please.

Cheers

Hi folks,

I guess like many of you I got my Sky gnome this morning,I've followed the
instructions to the best of my ability and indeed the gnome is receiving and
playing the sky content. However I cant change channels as it just says
searching! The transmitter is close enough to the receiver to pick up the
signal but for the life of me can't work out where I'm going wrong! Anyone
any ideas?Did contact the RNIB  who kindly offerred to send out a volunteer
next week which is great but I hate this sort of mystery!If anyone can walk
me through it my private E mail is below. Thanks!
