What Sky + equipment do I need.
Aug 10th, 2008, 9:23pm
 
Hiya all,
 
If someone has Sky + could you please tell me what equipment is needed.
 
At the moment I have a standard box, my questions are.
 
Do I need a different LNB?
 
Is there a subscription added to Sky + apart from the normal subscription?
 
Thanks all for any help you could give me.
 
All the best Rob.

Hiya
 
You need a sky+ box, and get sky to enable your card and box to work together. Not sure if that is extra on the subs, I know it used to be a year or two ago. Sky used to disable the hard drives in the boxes if you switched back to a normal sub.
 
You'll also need to upgrade the lnb to a dual or quad and run another cable into the box.

Thanks for that steve,
 
I was fairly sure I needed another LNB as I have only a single output LNB at the moment. I am now searching for the cheapest LNB quad.
 
Cheers for that m8.
 
Regards Rob.
