    Hi,

    If a SKY+ box is used as an ordinary sky box but with the two cables connected can you see the signal strength on both channels OR do SKY block input two until the SKY+ functions are activated. Would appreciate help here 'cos I don't know if I've got a dodgy box or the SKY+ activations are slow in coming through!!


    THanks

    Input 2 should be blank until the service is activated, well at least it was when mine was installed.
    If you have any doubts about the LNB connections then you can just swap them over just to confirm you are receiving a signal from both LNB connections on tuner 1.

    Starburst,

    ThAnks for that. I had an inkling that was the case but I wasn't sure and wanted to rule out a box problem. I've already swapped the cables to rule out a LNB problem. I had a good response from SKY they said 'The signals should be present all the time so we can send out an engineer for £65 to check it out'. I just didn't believe it was the box so thanks again for the info.

    Cheers

    Mel
