I have the old Freesat from Sky. It uses a Sky dish that previous house owner had. The dish has 1 black cable coming from it rather than the 3 you see sometimes. The previous owner also had cables running from living room into aerial sockets in other rooms so eg if I watch station 501 on main tv I can also watch 501 in other rooms.
Is there a way that I can watch 1 Freesat channel in main room but another Freesat channel in another room using my exisiting setup?
Many thanks. Out of interest is that the same LNB thing people talk about when you upgrade to Freesat HD or get a Humax Freesat HD box ie you need that in order to run more cables into the house so you can record different channel to you are watching etc?
"Out of interest is that the same LNB thing people talk about ...."
Basically you get one channel per cable - so for two different channels in two rooms - you need two cable(and two boxes).
For watching one channel and recording a different one, you need two cables and a box with two inputs.
And so on.
LNBs come in singles, duals, and quads (and octos now I think). For multi output LNBs there are two entirely different types - the type you heed is with independant outputs. There is a different type for community systems.
