According to Freeviewnz this can be done,  but there a technical glitch with using the 2 boxes off the dish but they have a diagram remedying it.

Anyone going to try?

The diagram does not quite remedy it, it simply is a work around. The solution is to wait, come early next month Sky is meant to move to Hpol, so both services will be on the same polarity, problem solved.

The workaround that FreeView show for will work under the present transponder polarity situation, however you can only use one of the boxs (Sky or FreeView) at any one time.

Another alternative is to use the TV1 and TV2 feeds on freq. 12671 which is a vertical polarity feed on the free to air box, then both boxes work if you are viewing 1 or 2 on the free to air box.

So does that mean, when you have it on vertical it changes the voltage output to the LNB? from 18v to 12v?

Yes. See this thread for more details on H vs V polarity: http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?ForumId=34&TopicId=12986
