    Hi Guys,

    I've finally been given the go-ahead to get Sky (or Sky+ as it will probably end up being).

    Unfortunately I can't have the dish on the outside of the building. I phoned Sky today and they said it must be on the outside - no alternatives.

    Now, with all today's technologies, I just don't beleive this. I'd really like it installed in the loft. Any suggestions?

    Cheers,

    d.

    Do you have a skylight or any kind of south facing window in the loft? If so there's a chance you may be able to install inside (if you search round here a bit
    you can find some links to pages dealing with how to set this up).

    Otherwise, there are alternatives to a normal dish such as those here although how effective these are I don't know (but would like to if anyone does...)
