    I am looking for anyone who has upgraded there Sky Mini Dish with a TELEVES 8 output LNB.

    At present I have 2x Sky + and I’m looking to add a Normal Sky box to an extra room but my LNB is full.

    I have been reading a few things about this LNB some people say it don’t fit the Sky Dish & some say it don’t work due to the amount of Signal Strength needed for the 8 outputs on the LNB.

    Could anyone with this kind of setup please let me know if it’s possible and also confirm the Good & Bad points of this setup?

    Here is the website I have found this LNB: http://www.pulsat.com/satellite/site/details.php?product_id=279

    £119.95 + Delivery

    Cheers

    You can always get a bigger dish that will fit it, eg..80CM, you don't have to use the SKY Dish, or you can get another SKY Dish mounted and add a Quad LNB..., your choice, I'd get another SKY dish, 8 LNB's is pushing it...

    hi,

    You will need planning permission to have two Dishes on your house - not much chance of getting it either. Better off with a bigger dish and the octo LNB.

    Cheers
