to Sky Digibox? Tried using a bigger dish for Sky but still missing a fair few channels when I connect the LNB cable to my Smart Receiver and another cable from the Smart's loopthrough to my Sky digibox.

Any ideas?

Your 'looped through' receiver (digibox) will only be receiving channels of the same polarisation and band as that selected on the Smart.

Thanks mate. I usually use L!ve TV as the channel to go to on the Smart before flicking to the Sky Box. I'll see if going to other FTA Astra 2 channels (e.g. Sky News) before flicking to the Sky Box gives me any more of the channels I want.
