Hi guys.

Just a quick question.

I read a lot of different satellite tv forums both here and overseas, and all the Overseas satellite installations, Foxtel DSTV etc that use a similar if not identical STB to MySky HDI, they need to have at least 2 outputs from the dish into the STB to work correctly. How come for HDI for their STB you just need a single cable? Whereas you have an identical model of STB in Australia, or even South Africa (with their FW of course) you have to have two coax cables from the dish into the STB to work correctly?

 

Thanks

Apologies about the grammer, been a long day for me and I'm about to go to bed.

Probably because NZ gets signal from only 1 satellite? There are 2, one of them far beyond it's expiry date.

Because all Sky services are on a single satellite with the one polarity (horizontal). If Sky decided to use either the vertical on D1 or add C1/D3 either vertical or horizontal you would obviously add a cable run for each accordingly.
