sat and return socket


Active Member
Hi all. I hope you can help please as I’m finding conflicting stuff online.

In my front room I have a socket plate which has “SAT”, “Return” (both satellite sockets) then a TV and radio socket.

I use FreeSAT which works fine. I have two outputs - a TV and projector. I seem to get signal from both “sat” and “return” sockets using a satellite cable. Even if this isn’t the design of it, is it okay to do so? It saves me switching the cables over into the “sat” socket.

Thanks as always!

It's just labelling at the end of a cable run. It'll depend on what the other end of the two cables are hooked up to.
