Hi Craig,

The vast majority of sky + (two wire) installs have a four output quad lnb however you may not be able to see the extra connections due to a pull down cover that protects the connections from the rain.

Hi Les & Brian,

Im testing a technomate TM-5492HD CI+ super as a single freesat recorder, coupled with a sky card & 640gb usb (all available on a well known auction site) I bbc1 london on 1 bbc2 wales on 2 / itv1 hd on 3 / channel4 hd on 4 & five hd on 5 & my other channels (freesat& non freesat) are in the order I want them, I have a epg & record from epg function & any recordings I make can be viewed on any device that can read the file such a phone or computer, Its early days as its only been available for a month or so but so far its been very good. The other nice thing is as the receiver has a programable card slot & a cam slot aswell as full diseq & usals motor control its not likely to become redundant any time soon. Its not the receiver for a novice but for enthusiast or pro its a usefull bit of kit.

Hi Lee,

Yes you would, but you would need to ring sky to get them to pair the card to the new box.

Hi Les,

The only slight glitch is the epg on astra 2 which is only now & next, however on other satellites such as hellasat im getting a full 7 day epg .
Ive been informed that they are working on the astra 2 situation.

Hi Les,

Yes its a ex sky sub card. I do read & understand a little cyrilic so the hellasat epg is useful.

Hi Mark A,

True Movies is broadcast on a frequency that is affected by wireless routers / av senders / dect telephones / baby monitors etc
cheap co-ax / twin micro coax / plastic cased satellite boxes dont help this situation.

The problem with the epg is that older sky boxes cant cope with more channels & the solution is for sky to swap out older boxes to bring everyone up to spec, my mobile phone company offer me a new updated phone each year to ensure i stay for another year. With all the profits that sky make each year I cant see why it would not be possible for sky as the platform gatekeeper footing the bill instead of restricting the market in this fashion.
Its crazy that viewers that pay for a premium service cant view a free channel such as itv4+1, after all every channel pays sky large amounts of money to appear on the epg so its not like they cant afford to sort it, more like they don't want to spend the money.

Hi Anita,

You have to give sky a months notice, wait your month out, then buy a humax freesat+ box & then swap it with the sky box, you wont need the sky card any more, job done !

Hi PB,

If you can get a proper external aerial, that would be by far your best option. Indoor aerials are not recommended by anyone in the trade, only by the people who sell them.
