I don't know much about this stuff so would really appreciate some advice.
I have an Ultraplus 780 micro PVR connected to an old sky satellite and am thinking of getting Sky installeds so I can get the extra Sky channels.
I have done a bit of reading but don't quite understand - could I connect both the freeview box and the sky decoder up to the satelite then run each one through to the TV - i.e. AV1 and AV2? This way I would hopefully be able to record something say on Freeview on the PVR and watch something else on Sky?
I have read some info about a dual LNB - I don't think my old sky dish has one of these. However, even when I used to have sky (a few years ago) and now with the PVR I am often getting rainfade and no signals - if I tell sky this before installation I am guessing they will replace the satelite or would I at least get a new LNB?
Or - do I even need one to do what I have described?
Sorry if these questions are stupid or have been answered before - any help much appreciated. Many thanks in advance,
