Hello Please can someone advise me I have 1 satellite dish at the moment and have 2 HUMAX FoxSat-HD Freesat HD Recorder - 500GB I`m running the 2 from the 1 dish I think it has a quad LNB ? I want to run a 3rd HUMAX FoxSat-HD Freesat HD Recorder - 500GB But I have no more feeds from the satellite dish Can I buy a bigger LNB ? If so will I be able to run the 3 freesat boxes from the one dish? Thank you Paul

Hi, yes you can run a third box, you will need to replace the LNB for one with more outlets probably an 8 way LNB and run two more cables to the new humax unit. Each outlet on an LNB is seperate from the others, and don't forget to turn the power off at the mains to each Humax before changing the LNB! Good luck.

You need something like this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SKY-UNIVERSAL-MK4-OCTO-LNB-Freesat-Foreign-/110857661566?pt=UKSoundVisionSatelliteLNBs&hash=item19cfa1ac7e which costs a modest £12.95 delivered. This assumes you have a standard Sky type dish as most of these devices are aimed at Sky users with Multiroom installation. It will however provide enough feeds for 4 Humax Freesat PVR's so you will have a spare set for future use or as replacements if any of the others develop a fault.
