I have just had an upgrade to sky+ and now find that the sky 150 tv link on the second tv does not work although Sky contractor said it would. Unfortunately he left without checking it.

I had exactly this issue,a new sky+ box did not resolve the issue . It transpired that my lead to the second tv went via a long route shortening this lead resolved the problem .
Possibly something to do with voltage drop.
Can you temporarily move second tv close to sky+ box to see if that works.
I don't know if sky produce different types of tv links.

No joy,, have been advised to go into system setup then installer menu (option 0) but it doesn't exist as only 8 options

the box is an Amstrad and does not have a 0 after services,4, therefore no installer menu. Unable to find it by scrolling around elsewhere

I think it's the same as the other sky boxes to get into the installer setup you will need to press Services, 4 system setup.

Now press 0, 1, select this should get you into the installer setup it may take a couple of tries. Select 4 RF outlet and check that RF outlet power supply is showing ON.

If the RF outlet power is showing as on it could be that the RF cable was plugged into the sky+ box with the power on this sometime causes a slight short.

Unplug the sky+ box from the power supply leave it for 2-3 minuets and plug back in letting it reset it self. This sometimes works but not always.
