Freesat on Samsung TV and Sky Q LNB


Standard Member

We are getting rid of Sky Q and have a Samsung UE55HU8200 with two Satellite input sockets.

Do I need to change the LNB on the dish for this TV?

I thought the dual input maybe meant that I didn’t but as I’m getting No Service or Weak Signal after auto tuning (which picked up 180ish channels) maybe I do?

it also kept saying Invalid Postcode after auto tune.

I believe the std sky q dual lnb is different as they swap it out when sky upgrade you from sky HD. There is a hybrid quad lnb but they only fit that if notified that you have other non sky satellite boxes.

So I guess it's possible that you will need to switch back to a non sky q dual lnb for it to work correctly?
