regarding sky + boxes

Just got a sky + box from someone on here and i have tried to record 1 channel and watch another channel but i got a warning sign saying no signal received

Called sky and they said because i only have one signal cable coming in i cant record and watch another

SOO my question is will this splitter suffice or will i need a new cable from the dish

You need a 2nd input from the dish, run a cable from the LNB to 2nd input on your sky+ box

No you need either 2 cables or a dual cable and also the dish needs to have a quad LNB to connect to,

Shouldn't be much, someone in the yellow pages shouldn't charge much. You got +hd downstairs or summit?

Check Ebay for "twin sky cable" ..

You may want to check this with someone who knows but i think you may have to pay more subscription to use a second sky+ box

+1 lol

my installer left his mobile number should i ever "want anything doing" he came back and charged me £20 for putting the red eye thing into my bedroom rather that than ring sky offiicially!!!

so i don't think it's cost you much to run a cable from dish to box...

Surely a quad LNB would give 4 cables
