How many feeds can be connected from a Sat dish


Standard Member

I am getting Sky HD (new user ) and am getting a New Panasonic 42G10 or V10 for the sitting room and two other 37" Panasonics one for a bedroom and one for a dining room.

I will ask the Installer if I can have a Samsung or Pace sky HD box, but I would like to ask if he will connect up the Panasonic Tv to the Sky dish so I can pick up Freesat HD as well as Sky HD. I will also have TVs in two other rooms and I am not sure how many you can connect up to the satalite.

Does anyone know ?

The standard install provides a Quad LNB so that's 4 feeds and if asked nicely and maybe grease the palm the installer may do the extra cabling. Since you need 5 feeds then you need a Octo LNB, this is not standard from SKY unless you are paying for services that require 5 or more feeds but again the installer may be able to help you out or perhaps fit an Octo if you supplied it.
