1 sky dish a new box and a spare



I have just renewed my Sky subs and they put in a new box. I still have the old pace box. Can I connect both up to get sky sub channels on one tv and free to air channels on the other?

How do I do it?


You can only do it if you have a quad lnb and connect the spare box to the dish.

The LNB is the box at the end of the arm that sticks out from the satellite dish.

Your existing LNB is probably a dual (i.e. can feed two boxes) in which case if your new box is a standard Sky box (not Sky+) then you can run antoher cable from the LNB to the other box.

LNB's the 'receiver' on the dish. Quad or duel refers to how many cables it feeds. If youve just got Sky (not+) then a duel will do & is the standard fit. Obviously you would have to run appropriate coax.
