denise: If the LNB on the dish was fitted with twin outputs for a Sky+ box and you no longer wish to use the recording side of the box then you only require one of the two leads to be connected into the boxes LNB1, therefore the second lead can be used for the other box.

By the way, its not really necessary to contact Sky unless you want to view Sky dedicated programmes that's part of a subscription package on the second box, because if not the other box will operate without a card anyway albeit that the news services will have reverted to London.

denise: I did also mean to add, that if you no longer subscribe to Sky then you would not be be able to use the recording side of the box anyway as Sky will have disabled your access to same from the viewing card, therefore the only purpose it now serves is to provide you with the correct local news for your area.

When the Astra 2E satellite comes on stream which we believe will be early Feb 2014, will BBC and ITV be available on the European band or just the UK band. Will Sky be available on the European band. We have a holiday home in Almeria and currently get Freeview and Sky but are informed that will change after the change over

Stu: No UK based channels on Astra 2 will use the UK spotbeam aimed at the UK and parts of North West Europe. Some subscription Sky channels will use the Pan-European beam which covers a good part of mainland Europe.

Stu, Please put a comma after the 'No' in your reply to Anthony - as it stands the reply is giving the exact opposite of what's going to happen!

Sorry, I meant Anthony, please put the comma in, or better still delete the 'No'.

Stu, some free to air sky/freesat tv and radio channels that have moved to Astra 2 that provide their services on a pan-european basis will also use the pan-european beam that spreads across a good part of Europe as well as the whole of the UK.

I have the Skybox + and have just ended my subscription.
I can see the Free-to- air channels - is that FSFS?- but how do I switch to view the others mentioned (Freesat)?
I have a dish and an antenna.
No requirement to record.

Thanks for your time!
