Hello all.

Wonder whether anyone can assist?

Have a house divided into two self-contained flats which I am in pocess of updating and tidying.

The upstairs tenant has a correct Sky dish on the roof (Attached to the chimney correctly).

The downstairs tenant is the problem!

I wish to provide both upper and lower flats with a correct signal to feed their decoders from the single dish.

Does this need twin LNBs and twin feeder cables?

Your help gratefully welcomed by the aptly named Dumbo! :-Jumbo

(OK: it isn't actually Dumbo but near enough)

Later guys.......

Best to provide each Tenant with 2 Feeds (So they can use Sky+ as intended), so you need a Quad Output LNB and four cables.

Unless you want to put additional feeds into eg the bedroom. Then you need an octo lnb and cables to the additional location.

...or a multiswitch arrangement for several feeds.
Straight forward enough if the house is divided into two flats on the same PME.

If it's two feeds to each, then a sky dish & quad will suffice as mentioned.
