    Hi. Bored this afternoon (on holiday with nothing to do!). Decided to move round the living room (not me, the furntiure etc.)
    Relocated my TV and audio equipment due to sunlight problems.
    During relocation of the SKY+ box both the cables from the dish to the box have worked loose. Trying to connect them again but no success. What am i doing wrong? Should it not be a case of simply plugging the cables back in again?
    Any help greatly appreciated.:suicide:

    if you mean the sat feeds just screw them into input 1 and 2.

    if the f connectors have come off just pull the outside braiding back make sure none touches the center core and screw the f connector back on .

    you may have to reset your box after if it says no signal on screen

    Thanks.
    Didn't realise that i would have to do a system reset. Hard drive now empty...Got my picture back though :)
    The 'Sat feeds' don't seem particularly secure. Is that normal?

    Not sure why a full system reset was needed, a simple reboot should have been ample and at worse a OS reload.
    The F-connecters should be firmly secure and only mess about with them when the digibox is unplugged, you can easily fry the tuner or LNB.
