using sky disk for freeview feed


Standard Member
Hi guys,

this maybe a very silly question. However, my questions is based upon me living in the northwest and receiving a good signal through a normal loft aerial to power my freeview, which I installed a few months ago. I have moved house now and am in the process of reducing wires, etc. I have a sky dish installed that feeds into a sky hd box. I also have a roof aerial which feeds the freeview to the built in tuner in my tv.

In order to cut down on wires, I was thinking of feeding a rf cable to one of the available ports in my quad LNB to the freeview feed on the TV. Is the sky dish capable of picking up a signal in this way ? or is the bandwidth totally different ?

would be good to know your opionions about this ?
