OK, this is my first post in this forum, and it might be a bit daft, so no sniggering please ;-(
Right, I sacked Sky some time ago in favour of Virgin cable, no probs there and very happy. Now, I kept my Sky dish and box, which are currently being used as limited freeview in my son's bedroom (Not many free channels on Sky) and I have no intention of new Sky contract. My question is, are there any other options for using my dish and maybe plugging it into pc to obtain non-Sky services, can I do anything with it other than what I am currently doing? Is it capable of more? Ever so ta
This guide shows what the dish should see and I can get these channels on my free to air satellite receiver - I'm not sure if the Sky box blocks these but its worth a try. The dish and LNB are generic but the Sky 'smart' card used to be required even for FTA.
Thanks, that looks interesting. I do get a certain amount of free channels through the Sky box already. All the BBC and ITV and a few others. If I could get a good few more via Freesat box, then I'll happily just leave it plugged into my sons TV and not bother with pc, that was only a thought in case it would have been beneficial. I'll check out more on the freesat. Thanks
