    Can I use my old sky dish for freesat on LG CX

    Last week our TV Aerial signal dropped out and I need a part for my ladders before I take a look at it. I have also been getting random freezes on the OS of the TV, each time needing to power off at the socket (not what i'd expect of a high end TV?) So I wondered as an alternative or extra, Is...

    Freeview TV signal through sky dish

    Hi I've just moved in to a new build house and haven't been able to get the TV or sky to work. I've spend the afternoon trying various things and finally I've got the TV to receive the freeview channels. The way I have done this is by connecting coax to the faceplate for the sky wires and then...

    LG SK9000 with Dish Network

    Purchased LG in 12/18. Very happy with all 4k. Was reasonably happy watching regular HD on DirecTv. Got double-crossed in a deal at Sam’s Club. Bailed and went with Dish Network. For some reason many of the channels, shows, games, etc... just don’t feel as sharp as DirecTv. I’m a...

    Foxsat pvr, sky dish, no signal

    Hi, just wanting to make sure I've not missed something really obvious. Moved into new house. Told previous owners had sky box.

    Question New coax has no signal from Directv dish, old does

    This makes no sense to me, I have Directv and it currently works with an occasional glitch using 3 old cables connected by couplers feeding signal from the dish. I thought I could improve the signal feed by buying a new coax cable that was the appropriate length, but the new cable doesn't seem...

    Using a SKY Dish (no box) to connect to Freeview

    Tearing my hair about a bit. I couldn't get Freeview HD using my normal indoor aerial, so I had a bright idea of using my twin SKY leads. I cut them and combined the copper wire and slotted into a booster which at the other end connected to my TV. Voila! It worked. However, some of the non-HD...
