I don't want to use a satellite box I have a freeview box. I want to know if an existing dish for sky can be use with the freeview box.Can I use a cable splitter and run one end to the sky box the the other to a freeview box and get the freeview channels.
Have just subscribed to Sky (not too pleased as they put the price up TWO HOURS after installation - now into an argument !) This has made my Humax PVR9150 redundant on main lounge TV. However have another TV still connected to the original aerial. Q: will the Humax still work with this or will all connections been severed ?
Ron Taylor: There is no reason why they would be, as satellite systems (Sky or Freesat) operate independently of each other.
If your Humax is still connected into the normal aerial?, then you should still be able to use it as well as your Sky box, the Humax connected into the TV using a scart lead, the Sky box connected into the TV via an HDMI lead, switching between the two sources using the "input select" button on your TV's remote control.
I've read through a lot of posts but I just wanted to clarify as it sounds similar to my situation. I have a Sky sat dish that worked with a freeviewbox on my old TV. I've just bought a new TV with inbuilt Freeview but it can't find any channels - will it actually be able to find any with this set up? Thanks
