    Had SKY+ installed this week with a trouble free install and a helpful engineer so excuse me if i feel like i'm in the twilight zone. :eek:

    Previously with my standard SKY I used a combined UHF/SAT wall face plate (like this ) to provide the connectivity, but clearly now there are two sat feeds to deal with - does anyone know of a three way faceplate (2 x sat + 1 x UHF) ? I don't really want to put yet another plate in the wall.

    Yes you can get 3 way or you buy a blank plate and DIY your own plate!

    How is it connected at the moment then???

    Did they run shotgun cables???

    hd - thanks. I have the old face plate dangling just providing UHF connectivity with the shotgun cable coming through the previous hole and going straight to the Pace unit. The engineer did a 2 metre run so that I could make up a fly lead plus he left me terminal connectors .... which was nice.

    I have loked in Maplins and labgear but to no avail so any ideas of web addresses would be great.

    And for those wondering, yes I would love to get rid of the UHF, but it goes from there into the SKY box then out again to another socket that distributes the 5 terrestrial plus SKY to three other TV outlets in the house. Thus I didn't wnat a third faceplate on the wall !
