I bought the tv with the offer of the Veezy 200 dongle at a reduced rate however when i plug the dongle in nothing happens and when i goto settings/network settings and try goto wireless it just says no dongle found?

I just had the dongle and a stand for dongle in the pack no instructions or drivers or CD should it just be plug and play or am i doing something wrong?

Answer: 
If the dongle came as an offer then you'd expect it to be compatible so there is an unlikely chance that it's faulty.

It is just plug and play, so you're okay there.

I've found that dual band dongles, those that do 2GHz and 5GHz work. I tried a 2GHz only and it was as you described above. You'll know it's worked as when you plug it in it'll say "Wi-Fi dongle detected" after about 10 seconds.

Maybe return the dongle and try a replacement?

You can connect any external device that has an HDMI connection. I connect my Virgin box via one of the two HDMI sockets. You should be able to connect your Sky box in the same way
