Don't forget unles you have / have had Sky digital, you will need a dish & installation
#2
If you have already had sky will you need your dish realigning or is it already pointing the right way?
#3
You might need to make a slight adjustment to your sky dish. I think it depends how long its been installed. If only a few years, im sure it should be fine. If you have got sky plus, you can run a seperate cable from your dish to this box and keep your sky box in aswell.
Im sure someone will tell me if im wrong.
#4
A standard Sky dish has an LNB with 4 feeds, however you can upgrade that to 8 or even 16 (flats tend to have many feeds coming from one dish). Meaning one could have a sky+ box (2 feeds) and 2 digiboxes (one each) all running from one dish.

Unless the dish has moved since installation it should be fine (bear in mind the wind can move the dish).
#5
This is a very good deal. This box was selling for £139 recently. Hot hot.
#6
Good price but i'm going to wait for a PVR HD Freesat version so i can record on it too.
Should drop in price once all manufacturers start producing them and competing on price.
#7
Have had this box since it was launched.This & my 40" Sony bravia make life taste sweet.
#8
Freesat and Freesatfromssky and Sky are all transmitted form the Astra satellites - mostly Astra-D so if you have a Sky or Freesatfromsky setup, the dish and LNB should do for Freesat just fine.

Like the person above, I'm waiting for a decent Freesat HD PVR to appear

If your sky was working then so will the freesat service as it points to the same sat.

Likewise. There are few HD channels on Freesat so worth waiting for bit. I bet these boxes will drop a lot in price just as the freeview ones have. Good spot if you can't wait though!

Ditto :thumbsup:
#12
Not to be a bit thick, but presumably the connection lead (looks like a coaxial) from the sky dish will plug straight into these HD freesat boxes with no modifications?

Cheers

I currently have Sky+ and would like to put one of these in as well - I had a look at my Sky dish and as described above I have an LNB with 4 feeds (2 in use).......can anyone tell me if this is a simple do it yourself job connecting to one of the spare ports on the dish.

Also could I just take one of the feeds from the back of the Sky+ - i may be over simplifing but I am guessing that this would just limit the recording ability to one program at a time ?

Thanks

Thats not strictly true. New and recent (last 2-3 years maybe) installations of Sky Digital will have an LNB with 4 feeds. If you've had your Sky Digital installation for a long time, chances are that your LNB only has one feed. However, if you've ever had multiroom or Sky+ installed since your original install, you will most likely now have a quad LNB.

I recently got the Humax freesat box, it can be put into 'non-freesat' mode, which allows you to receive loads more channels. Im not sure this bush one can do this.
If your in Scotland, ITV HD does not work as STV do not carry the HD signals. To get round this i can put an English postcode in the box's settings. It then receives ITV and can then get ITV HD via the red button.
If you dont record much, get one now, if you do, wait for the PVR version. Me (and lots of reviewers) recommend the Humax over any other freesat box.
#17
How many and what HD channels can you get?

How does that stack up against others - ie Sky?

Yeah you'd need to get your hands on some coax cable and run that from one of the spare feeds to the nex box. And you're right, if you were to take a feed from the sky+ box that would limit you to watching/recording one show at a time.

True, but it was more than 3 years ago they started fitting all installs with quad LNBs, nearer 5-6 i'd say.

You get BBC HD and ITV HD for free. That's basically it - although Five and CH4 will be launching their own free to air HD channels next year, giving you a grand total of 4. That's 4 for free, as opposed to 12 odd (may be more now) on Sky HD costing £10 a month on top of your normal subscription.
#21
bear in mind that most of Sky's HD is SD upscaled...so it's not that great anway. I think Sky HD is completely overated and over priced, UNLESS you watch Sky Sports, which is filmed using HD cameras, and is probably the truest sense of HD on Sky.

Humax one rumoured to be coming out for Xmas at a price of £300 approx.
The again it was originally coming out in July before teething probs.

May be a silly question this but here goes. I am planning on getting a HD TV in the next couple of months but am looking to pick up a freesat box on the weekend. I was planning on getting a HD version. Can I still use the SD channels from this box on my old crt in the meantime?

I'd assume the box connects via HDMI only meaning you'd be able to connect to your new HD ready TV but not your old CRT, sorry.
Possible it may also have a scart out though????Anyone know for sure?
