About this deal

If you have extra SkyQ Mini boxes then these do not connect to the satellite dish at all but coneect to the main box via it’s own wireless Mesh Network.

Can someone please tell me what LNB I have on my SKY Q satellite dish, it was installed July 2022 by SKY. I took several photos of the LNB, paying attention to the angle it was positioned with relation to the dish and arm. When I had SkyQ, Sky replaced my LNB with a hybrid one so I could continue using my Humax Freesat receiver. The Labgear VHK6 hybrid LNB is perfectly compatible with Sky Q, Sky HD, FreeSat HD, and other HD and 4K UHD European broadcast services.

Testing concept of 'potentially' moving to the sky stream service or now tv but would like to still be able to record. The signal strength is much better and now I can record up to 6 channels at once (I have 2 boxes connected, a standard one and a UHD Freesat box). Just to make it simpler for you, get this one and if you look closely it comes with a fixing as well that slides on the lnb arm but your best bet is to unscreww the fitting for the Q lnb and take off fixing on new lnb and put in place of sky one exactly as it was.

This conversion process allows the signal to be transported to the indoor satellite TV receiver using coaxial cable. It serves as the Radio Frequency front end of the satellite receiver, managing and amplifying the microwave signal from the satellite collected by the dish and down converting the block of frequencies to a lower block of intermediate frequencies. Hybrid LNB’s work with our new 4K Box as well as older Freesat Boxes, letting you record up to four shows at the same time. Depending on how many leads you have to the TV for freesat, most hybrid LNBs will have 2 outputs for "Freesat" so you can run 2 TVs from the LNB with an additional cable however if you have a freesat box and want to record it may need 2 leads.The GW2LB has two outlets, one carrying all the horizontally polarized signals and the other the vertical. Established in 2005, Chigwell Satellite is the UK's leading independent Sky HD, Humax and BT TV retailer, professional satellite installations and are proud suppliers and installers of Starlink technology. GREATER FLEXIBILITY TO A HOUSEHOLD:The Hybrid LNB Allows greater flexibility to a household, avoids having to have more than one satellite dish on the property and when you decided to leave the Sky contract you can use the 4 Quad outputs to power free to air Freesat receivers with no monthly contract charges or having to replace the satellite dish or LNB. In the Sky Q box, multiple tuners can select multiple channels, more than the usual two for dual coax systems. What to expect from our service, how we differ from the rest and how using us can actually benefit you!

Note - the Triax heavy duty dishes are designed for very high wind areas and a high salt environment. I'm sorry for jumping into your conversation, but it seems something similar to what is confusing me.If it also wasn't mentioned on your sales path, I'd suggest raising this with Sky as part of an argument that you were not adequately informed. There’s a slight design flaw with the slide-down water shield for the cables; water can run down the body and get inside the sliding shield. Wideband Outputs - two separate outputs, one for VERTICAL polarised frequencies and one for HORIZONTAL polarized frequencies.

Labgear products are designed and manufactured to high standards, ensuring excellent performance and reliability. Finalky I screwed back in the coax cables but into two of the silver ones and NOT the gold ones (for sky Q).SIMPLE TO USE: Easy Setup, all you need to do is align to the satellite of your choice then add your cable, connectors and your own receiver. LEVEL: The LNB has a smalll spirit level built into the collar to aid you to get the skew of the satellite dish level. The microwave signal from the dish is collected by a feedhorn on the LNB and is passed to a section of waveguide.
