Freesat input from Sky+ box


Active Member
Hi, apologies if this is answered elsewhere - I did have a search but couldn't see it. Sorry also if it seems a stupid question!

If I had a tv with built in freesat, could I take the satellite signal from my sky+ box without losing the two inputs to the sky box. I suppose what I mean is is there an output on the sky+ box to "forward" the sat signal on? So that I still have fully functioning sky+ and also freesat through the tv. Or is the only way to run another cable from the dish.

I have a quad lnb so a third cable is not the end of the world, but if I could go from the sky+ box it would be so much easier! I believe there is an output on the box that can be used to link to another tv - could I use this?

Thank you.

No way, you will need a third cable for full use of both the TV and Sky+.
