i got sky + HD but because i live in a high rise, i have only got one feed coming through..just want to know best options for me to get a second feed in order to use the sky+ facilities? thanks!
On your Sky remote, press services to see the options menu.
Select settings-the picture menu is displayed
Press 0(zero), 1 then select to access the hidden engineers menu
scroll down to singal feed mode change from off to on
then you should be able to record (one channel only not two)
hope this may help
depending on how your block is wired, you could use something called a 'johansen stacker de-stacker' this is a box that connects to 2 lnb feeds, and a single cable at the top, and another box that connects to the bottom of the single cable, with 2 lnb feeds coming out of it
you MUST have good quality cable, and no longer than ~35M long
theyre about £85 but they do work for situations like this where a 2nd cable CANNOT be run
Still with single feed you will get "No sat signal" most mornings.To sort this a bit turn off auto standby and also with single feed you shouldnt use anytime as it downloads the content via input 2 overnight.Having said this you can use anytime.But not much content will be added.If you live in a highrise i would think it be a communial dish.So you will need a seperate feed run from the nearest switch if there is any space.Also you cannot set to record different channels when you say go on holiday unless they are all on the same channel.If you set reminders on different channels you will get failed and "no sat signal"
I know i went on a bit but just running you through a few probs and solutions.Believe me,i know.lol

cheers mate will give that a go tonight...i still think you cant record one programme and watch the other at the same time though...but will give it a go.
the box will only record channel the reciver is on as there will be no feed to the other tunner (only one cable not two connected)
