One of my daughters has a SKY satellite dish and a SKY plus box. She also has an HD ready Sony TV - so far so good.
Her flatmate has just arrived home with a FreeSat box and an HDMI lead, and the two girls have had a frustrating hour trying to set the thing up. The man in the shop said they can use the FreeSat box with their SKY dish, and so do the nice people at FreeSat, but how do you connect it all up?
They've connected the FreeSat box to the TV with the DDMI lead, and the instructions with the FreeSat box tell you to connect the satellite dish to the 'LNB IN' connector on the box, but they're assuming that you need to connect the SKY box to the Freesat box, and so am I, but how?
The SKY box has two 'line in' connectors, both of which have a cable connected, and both cables come from the SKY Dish. How do you get a connection from the dish to the FreeSat box, and still have the use of the SKY box?
I'm sorry if that's a bit long-winded, but I'm trying to resolve this by phone, and so far my street cred is slipping fast.
Though I failed to find it in our search box I seem to recall that a second collector[ an LMB or some such] is required to go into the Sky dish because of the slightly different orientation of the satellite. A Google revealed this. click here Something here may reveal a clue
