Tip & How-To about Audio Players & Recorders

Watch your SKY channels on a second TV with Magic Eye and remote

If you have Sky Multi-room this will feed a separate SKY signal from your LNB on your dish to a second SKY box if you have the basic this will not cost you anything you still need a card inserted in the front to make this work. I think it costs £5 extra for more channels.

So if you have SKY + you will have 3 coaxial cables coming out of your LNB. ( 2 for the SKY + and 1 for the Multiroom )

To ger the signal for free the easy way is to connect a coaxial cable from the RF2 output on the back of the SKY ot SKY+ box into another TV and use a SKY Magic Eye these cost about £5 and have a range of about 20 meters. You can use a coaxial splitter to feed two TV but you will loose more signal the more you connect.

You will need to turn this function on using the hidden menu to allow you to use the Sky Remote control then LED on the unit will show you that there is a signal.

Hello, I have a sky dish and decoder, but before the decoder I have put a splitter and carried a seperate coax straight to another Freeview tv hoping to get a signal... But it hasnt. Is it possible to achieve what I am trying or do i need a separate cable from the dish for a different tv, or can i not use the sky dish for both freeview and sky?

Are you using the same output from the LNB on your sky dish?
ie one cable??.
If you are it will not work you need to use a seperate output,
if you cant do this,you will need to change the LNB to a multi output one.
By the way there is 30 volts present all the time from your receiver to your LNB, that is even while switched off.

I have a Zinwell Quad LNB J4S which I have just got around to fitting to my Sky Mini dish and have a problem. There are 2 supplied fixing brackets only one of which fits my dish arm but holds the LMB at the wrong distance and angle. Consequently, the signal strength on my freesat box is too low and I get no picture. Could you tell me if there is a different bracket available for this LMB or do I need a different LMB for my Sky dish which was fitted in November 2006 and I think is called a Channel Master dish .

Hi, You would probably be better of getting a new dish and single 4 output LNB or you could try just ordering a 4 output LNB with a universal bracket especially for the sky dish variants, I have seen these on ebay and have used one successfully myself, I think it only cost me 20 gbp.
If you are having problems in the area with reception it may also pay to get a 90cm dish and 4 output LNB combined.

Hope this helps.
