Sky+ Help!

Hi,

I've recently moved house to a new apartment which has installed satallite sockets?

I have a sky+ box and want to use it for freesat, all I have with the box is power and scart cables.

What cable do I need to connect the sky+ box to the satallite socket? as I have no idea.

There are to satallite sockets but I'm presuming this is for recording use.

Thanks

Hi and wecome to AVF.
A length of cable with an f-plug at each end, similar to the ones you get for aerials but with screw plugs instead of push ones, and from the same source, your local electrial or general goods shop or store.

Yes, anywhere on the web - Ebay's the obvious, but corner shops usually sell them!

i purchased one, hooked it all up and it says no signal now :(

Not sure what to do now will I have to change any settings on the box?

Both the sockets are screw-in, and neither works?
Better ask the neighbours if they have the same setup working.
