Hi all, Totally forgot I joined this forum a while back.I'm far from an expert on satellite stuff so I have a couple of questions and general wonderingments, 1) On the back of my technomate box there is a "loop" connector,what is this for? 2) I was given a technistar 4000,it picks up FTA no problem but it has a card slot,what cards can I put in it? will it take a Sky card? 3) Does the aforementioned "loop" on the technomate mean that I can use it to view whatever is on there through another box (i.e. the technistar one),that is to watch two different programs on two different TV's? I hope the questions are clear as,like I said,I'm far from an expert.I would greatly appreciate any help or additional info on this matter,thanks in advance, Bill.
