    I have an open box v8s and I received a call from sky asking if I would like sky q installed and since then I receive the message no signal on the v8s box. I was keeping that box for BT & Box Office. I was running a search on the net and a user zgemma said changing to 28.2 single sat resolved it for him others are saying I need an Hybrid LNBS.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Sky have clobbered you.
    You should have asked for a hybrid type lnb as your box will not work with the Q type.

    It's the block shaped thingy on the end of the arm of your dish. Hybrid means it'll be capable of running both your Sky Q box and your V8S.
