steve wardle: You will have to buy a subscription to watch it via Sky.

The only other possibility is if you are in an area served by a full Freeview transmitter; you could then watch Dave. A Freeview recorder is subscription-free.

thank you so much for all your replies, appreciate it :) don't want to part with anymore money though, i have plenty of channels on sky downstairs my own sky box upstairs and I think its criminal for them to charge me to use my own equipment in my own house when I am already subscribed to them :/ recording and basic freeview through a skybox should not be a tenner a month :/

Linda Singh: If your box has been operating perfectly OK up until now then your problem can only be caused by one of two things, the first being that its something connected with your dish or the coax from, such as some object having knocked against the dish and moved it slightly out of alignment or that the coax cable from the dish has been damaged, or maybe even that the actual LNB on the dish arm has developed a fault, as although LNB's are amazingly reliable they "can" fail. Secondly, should none of the mentioned apply, then it could be that the boxes internal power unit has developed a fault of the nature that causes a reduction in the voltage supplied to the tuner which will result in the tuner cutting out, (another known fault!) although the chances of this particular fault happening are much greater if the box is over three years old and is switched on 24/7 whilst in a confined environment such as a cabinet. Needless to say, that the only way of finding out which one of the two scenarios is applying is by either trying the box on someone else's dish or trying their box on yours, but you should give the coax feed to / from the dish a visual inspection just to make sure that nothing has happened to it, you wont of course be able to tell if the dish has been moved as it only takes the merest fraction of movement to kill off the signal. That said, it wouldn't go amiss to carry out an LNB check using the following procedure, as although its extremely uncommon for this type of thing to go wrong it cant be completely discounted. 1:- Press Sky followed by Services. 2:- Highlight System Setup (4) and press select. 3:- Press 0 then 1 then select. 4:- Press select again to access the LNB setup screen. 5:- Press the red button to re-set the default settings. 6:- Using the up/down arrows, highlight Save New Settings and press select. 7:- Press select to confirm that the settings have been reset. By the way, just for checking purposes, the correct settings for the LNB are / Low frequency - 9.75 High Frequency - 10.60 The LNB power supply should always be set to on. The 22KHz Command should always be set to on.

an option for you is to run a cable from your downstairs skybox to your bedroom tv and watch all your subscribed channels plus use your record.
if done correct a "magic eye" can be fitted so to use the remote in the bedroom ?

Hi Brian,
I've been looking into buying a dreambox but are struggling to find out what channels I can actualy receive from it and what it can do, most youtube videos etc are misleading.
Are you able to do an article on this subject and possibly a list of what channels are available as compared to freesat. I do appretiate that it may be a complex answer.
Thanks John P
