    Hi all

    Im having a problem with my box, I have a humax 2000 and sky+, I have connected them together by a pass through cable.

    When they are both connected I get the message no satellitte signal is being recieved on all the BBC channels, all the rest are fine.

    I have tried disconnecting the humax and running both cables to sky and all is fine, I only have the problem when using the pass through cable.

    I have checked the cable and all is well with it so I dont understand why it doesnt work.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Steve

    You need to try a feed switch box instead as both boxes will be putting down the 22khz tone down the cable or switching the 18v on the LNB. You could try turning off the LNB power in the services menu too.

    Cheers, Franc

    Thanks Franc

    I'll give that a go in the morning.

    1st time I posted on here but I read quite often and have seen you really know your stuff.

    Thanks for helping.

    Make sure only one box is out-of-standby at any time. Make sure the box in standby is on a low-band vertical polarisation channel.
