Hey there, I was rearanging my room and crushed one of the satellite cable connectors.  MySky still works with just one connected, but am I missing out on quality of signal etc? without the second cable connected.  Do I need to fix the connection or can I just leave it as is?  


Cheers.

at present you don't need the second one - thats for future use. It should be ok - can i ask how you "crushed" it? maybe ring sky and get them to replace/fix the unit especially how they own them, and its their responsibility for fixing/maintaining them...

They will of course charge you at least the minimum $40 technician fee to repair the connector because it was your fault the connector got crushed. You could always try to fit an f-connector yourself.
