I need two feeds for a Sky Plus box and two for a Humax Foxsat HD box. The LNB I brought from the UK is faulty....only three of the four ports are working. I have swapped the boxes and cables around and our local installer has confirmed it is the LNB that is the problem.

If your dish is a black mesh UK style dish which is wider than it is high you will either have to buy mail order from the UK or visit one of the specialist dealers who set up Sky in France. If on the other heand you have anormal French dish which is taller than it is wide most decent Hypermarkets and electrical shops stock them. The Sky dish has a smaller neck.

I see! Yes, this is a UK Sky mesh dish, fitted a few years ago, but the new LNB I brought out this time came with a selection of fittings.

I am wondering whether it may be worth changing the dish to a larger one at the same time. The Humax reception is 95% strength, 100% quality, but the Sky Plus box is only around 60% strength, 70% quality.

Good to know that I should be able to find everything locally.

Thanks for the replies.

I was just about to say the same thing AnO.  Good for you!

And - lest there be any doubt - there is no such thing as a digital aerial,  or a digitally enhanced aerial,  or digital cable,  or the like.   So avoid anyone who tries to sell you such nonsense!
