Freesat HD/Sky HD

Hi

I've asked this same question in the Fresat forum, just wanting to get an opinion in here. My parents and I have each pre ordered a Panasonic TX-P50V10B which has built in Freesat. I have a guy coming out tomorrow to replace all the aerial cables and satelite cables. I'm wondering is it worthwhile having a Octo LNB fitted rather than a quad LNB so that we can have both Freesat and Sky or is it just best to only have Sky?

To be honest I bought a TX-P42G10B and considered putting in another cable to my quad LNB (only 2 used for Sky HD), but to be honest when the TV has built in Freeview (DVB) already, and having Sky HD I haven't seen the need to have Freesat as well. The built in Freeview picture quality is pretty good too.

For a few quid ontop of the already impressive investment to future proof I would say it's definitely worth it, you could lose the SKY+HD box due to failure or whatever and hey you still have a HD source for both displays.
