We used to have Sky+ but after a thunder storm it stopped working along with out normal Sky box.
Anyway my other half got them replaced with just a normal Sky box. (Do not ask me why how she did this as I used to work away).
We have the old boxes in the cupboard. To cut a long story short I was going to sling them out but she came to the conclusion they may work after all because she said the cable from the dish to the boxes was knackered so it may not be the boxes that were broke.
How can I test a Sky+ box with just a single line coming from the dish? Will it still work as a normal box? Should I just plug it in with the single line and see if it works? Or do you need both lines?
