    Would this be a suitable setup for sky+?

    1. In our tenament block of flats, I cannot get a line of site. I have asked my neighbour if I can share his existing dish. He said yes.

    2. Put on a quad LNB.

    3. Re-connect neighbours single cable.

    4. Run two lengths of CT100 cable to my flat. (approx 30m to entry point)

    5. Join onto CT63 cable to go into flat. Joined outside so that only 1 hole is drilled.

    6. Route 12m of CT63 inside flat to Sky+ box (bought from simplydigital).

    7. Contact Sky.

    8. Watch Sky+.

    First post and it's a cracker:)

    1. There may be some issues in regards to sharing a dish, pretty sure there are some electrical regulations involved. Not to mention potential legal issues IF there was ever a problem.
    2. Make sure you recheck dish alignment, heavier Quad LNB can droop the arm.
    4. Why not CT63 cable all the way? I have read there is a performance drop off at long lengths (more so than CT100) but having a join in the cables won't help matters.

    Apart from those three points the rest is sound:)
