im having problems watching one channel while recoding another. i have sky uk dish with one cable connected to the back. in the config i have set tuner a to sky uk simple and tuner b to loop.
wat about if i get a splitter and put cables into both tuners will that be ok?
m8 it will not work like that you need 2 separate feeds to record different channels at same time what your doing will only let you record what your watching or same transponder
digi you beat me to it
i will let you explain he needs a twin lnb with 2 cables

well i cant do that becuase it will mess up our room as we have wooden floors. anyway i just got box for this reason but i may aswel sell it now
You can replace the existing wire with a shotgun cable, which is more or less the same size as a single cable . as said above you will need a dual/quad lnb[5-7£ on ebay]
I spoke to my local sky dish installer and he sed u wil need a new dish as my current one is too old. He sed it wil cost £40 for dish with quad lnb and double cable fitting included
for example one of my own zone 2 sky minidishes is almost 8 years old and all i did was replace the old single feed lnb with a octo ( 8 feed ) lnb and new coax runs.
there was absolutely no need or a new dish.
it will cost £40 for dish with quad lnb and double cable fitting included
if he is doing all this for 40 quid i would jump at it if i was you
i cant see where he is making any money are you sure thats for all you have said inc fitting?
i know very cheap i phoned him again to confirm and he said everything is included even the fitting so im going to book him when weathers better
